ABOUT LANGLEY COMMUNITY FARMERS’ MARKET
The Langley Community Farmers’ Market is a community asset now, and into the future! It is the heart of access to local “make it, bake it, grow it” in the Langleys.
The LCFMS is governed by an elected board of directors which works closely with the market management team to develop policies to regulate market operations and to clarify participation in the market. The LCFMS has the right to change, delete or modify its policies. All policies will be enforced in a fair and respectful manner.
The mission of the LCFMS is to create a food secure community by improving access to local, healthy, affordable food to the community. Local is considered the shortest possible distance between the producer and the consumer for seasonal items grown and made in BC.
The LCFMS aims to be a sustainable non-profit society, meaning its outputs do not exceed inputs on any resource level including human, financial, creative and environmental.
A community approach actively seeks participation from, and development with, community members including neighbourhood residents and supporters, area businesses, and community organizations including non-profit and NGO’s. The LCFMS strives to increase awareness of local food issues and increase education about and in support of regional agriculture.
