Third Sector Company is proud to announce that Rebecca Lane has begun as the Interim Executive Director of the Tacoma Farmers Market.
Tacoma Farmers Market creates vibrant marketplaces where local farms, small businesses, and organizations connect directly with the community in Tacoma, Washington. The organization envisions that all residents, regardless of income, will have reliable access to fresh, healthy food, and celebrate its place in the community.
“I started at the Tacoma Farmers Market just in time for fall harvest!” said Rebecca. “This 41-year-old organization is staffed by dedicated folks and the board is deeply engaged. The products sold are fantastic – local & delicious. With most markets ending soon I’m on a fast learning curve, meeting vendors, supporting staff, and asking lots of questions.“
“The board is excited about the organizational assessment process and I’m supporting a strategic planning process to launch early next year, as well as starting the permanent Executive Director search. It’s a delightful interim placement, and I’m so grateful for the support of Third Sector Company.”
