Artisan Farmers' Market Society - Board of Directors

Board Of Directors

Mimi Shewchuk

Mimi Shewchuk

PRESIDENT

I have managed a large market on Vancouver Island for 5 years and greatly enjoy the time I spend with this community. I also own a business "Bijoux Beads" and have been a vendor at various markets for over 9 years. Since I am not longer vending or managing I have missed being involved in this community and felt volunteering as a Board Member was a great way to stay in touch and use my experience for the "other side" of the Market.

Inga Liimatta

SECRETARY

The magazines she represents, Edible Vancouver & Wine Country, celebrate local food culture season by season, and tells stories about farmers, fishers, chefs, brewers, vintners, artisans and other people whose work is part of the glue that bonds our communities. Believe it or not, part of her job responsibilities is visiting local farmers markets. She enjoys going to farmers markets, and is proud to be part of a society that not only supports, but helps to build awareness for our local producers.
