Portland Farmers Market (PFM) is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors composed of 12 to 18 members. Our current board is made up of community leaders, farmers market vendors, professionals and entrepreneurs from diverse backgrounds, all of whom are deeply dedicated to the mission and success of Portland Farmers Market.
Joining PFM’s board of directors is an excellent opportunity to expand your experience in nonprofit leadership and contribute your unique skills and perspective to support a highly-regarded organization that provides an essential service to the Portland community.
Applicants with a passion for farmers markets, an interest in board service, and a commitment to equity and inclusion. Familiarity with our farmers markets and/or past nonprofit experience is preferred, but not required.
If you feel that your unique skills or perspective would be valuable to our Board of Directors, we look forward to hearing from you!
We are particularly seeking applicants with interest or expertise in these specific areas:
We believe that having a diversity of perspectives and life experiences on our board is critical to understanding and effectively meeting the needs of our vendors, shoppers, staff, and the communities in which our markets call home. We strongly encourage Black, Indigenous and people of color, LGBTQ+ people, recent immigrants, people with disabilities, and applicants from diverse generational, economic, religious and educational backgrounds to apply.
