Tacoma Farmers Market executive director steps down

Laura Edwards, the Executive Director of the Tacoma Farmers Market, announced today she will be leaving the organization effective immediately. “After four years of serving the Tacoma Farmers Market organization and getting to work with this wonderful community, I’ve made the difficult decision to accept a new position in California,” Edwards said via e-mail. “Although I will miss the fresh, organic ambiance of running a farmers market organization and riding the local food movement, I could not ignore the call to do some great environmental work.” For more information, visit http://www.tacomafarmersmarket.com .
