Behind the scenes of Coppell Farmers Market is a committee of volunteers working to assure that the market runs smoothly and successfully. Sharing a love for the market, its vendors and fresh, local food, committee members handle tasks such as:
Site visits to vendors' farms, ranches and production facilities. This helps assure the integrity of the market and at the same time deepens our relationship with the vendors.
Review vendor applications to determine appropriateness of new vendors and proper vendor mix.
Marketing the market, reaching out to new customers and keeping current customers informed about what's fresh and what's happening.
Maintaining a web and social media presence.
Handling the SNAP program of acceptance of Lone Star cards.
Hosting the Farm to Table dinner.
Overseeing and promote the market's transition to the new site.
Setting up special events such as chef demos, craft days, Customer Appreciation Day, and Vendor Appreciation Day.
Scheduling non-profit booths.
Keeping up with affiliation memberships.
