The Nelson Farmers Market Advisory Committee (NFMAC) consists of a variety of representatives from multiple sectors in the community.

The committee members meet once a month to help inform and provide input on key insights, opportunities, market strategies, and trends relating to the Nelson Farmers Market. Additionally, the NFMAC will act as a source of feedback for City of Nelson staff to help facilitate the development of policy and rule-making initiatives for a fair and efficient market.

Members are selected based on their experience and expertise. The goal is to have an advisory committee with diverse skills, knowledge and perspectives to ensure the Nelson Farmers Market will benefit from a richness of advice and guidance.

Currently, we are not accepting applications for the NFMAC.
