Get to Know Us

We're a Community Within a Community.

Our Market is more than just a bunch of people selling things. Like any other group project, it requires communication and coordination, and people willing to help each other out.

We also have ties outside the Market -- that's where we come from, after all!

Our Committee

Our Market Committee consists of seven members:

All representatives are volunteers. Their duties include attending monthly meetings, soliciting input and feedback from other vendors, reviewing and updating the Market rules, drawing up Market bylaws and operating procedures, reviewing and approving vendor applications, and promoting the Market. Vendor representatives are elected by the vendors of their respective category. Community Representatives are appointed by the Market Manager. The Market Manager is appointed by the Town of La Plata.
