FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Mount Vernon Farmers Market Board of Directors is proud to announce Tia Entrikin as the new Executive Director of the Mount Vernon Farmers Market.
Tia Entrikin has been the Market Manager for the past three years and has done an outstanding job of stewarding the market through times of significant change and uncertainty. We think she is absolutely the right person to lead our organization in an expanded capacity. Her role as Executive Director is a newly added role to the organization which will oversee all staffing, operations, and marketing of the market. Over the past couple of years there have been limitations in the growth of the market due to staffing. This new role will help in the growth of the market and bring the community even closer to all that Skagit has to offer. Our goal is to make a market that all vendors and guests feel welcomed at and where all can gain knowledge as to what is in their own community.
With Tia taking on this new role we are now hiring for a Part-Time, Seasonal Saturday Market Manager. The Market Manager will be in charge of the day of operations at the Saturday Markets running mid-May to mid-October. If you know of anyone interested all information can be found on our website.
As always if you have any questions, concerns, or comments for the market please feel free to reach out. Once again congratulations Tia, we can’t wait to see what the future of the Mount Vernon Farmers Market holds.
