What We Are Striving For
- To strengthen the foundation of healthy community by offering a safe, relaxing and enjoyable place for families and individuals to come together.
- To stimulate and support our local economy by providing a venue for organic market gardeners, backyard growers, home produced food, crafts and artisans.
- To create an opportunity for community groups to convey information to their neighbours concerning important local, social, political and environmental issues.
- To encourage the continuing transition towards ecologically harmonious methods of food production, striving to work with, rather than against the natural system, and
- To have fun!
In the spirit of cooperation, let’s enjoy our community market to the fullest!
Market Policy Manual
The Fairfield Community Market Society, doing business as the Moss Street Community Market, is a registered society under the BC Society Act. All of our Vendors must be members of the Fairfield Community Market Society. Memberships are renewed each year, on the day of the AGM.
One must be a member of the Market Society to participate in the decision-making process at our AGM. We ask that all Vendors contribute to the life and work of the Market by volunteering in some capacity for the Market. Folks who are not Vendors are welcome to also become members of the Market Society, supporting and participating in the life and work of the Market.
Board of Directors
The Market Board is comprised of nine directors. Our directors are members of the Market, and volunteer their time. The Board operates with the consensus decision-making model, and meets once each month. The Board can be reached by emailing Board@MossStreetMarket.com.
