RVMS would like to thank outgoing Board Member Lucy Galvan for her years of service at RVMS and most recently for her leadership on the Farmers Market Committee. Lucy was an RVMS Board Member and Farmers Market Committee Member for the last 6 years.  Among other things, Lucy helped to expand the free children's programming at the market, bringing in diverse and quality entertainers. Lucy, alongside her husband, Alejandro, were owners of El Chavo Mexican Products and have made a significant impact on the community as both business owners and residents. Thank you, Lucy!
 
We wish to extend a very warm welcome to the new Farmers Market Committee Co-Chairs for the upcoming summer season -- Liz Graham-Meredith and Richard Chalfin. Liz and Richard are both longtime Farmers Market Committee Members and Richard most recently served as Co-Chair of the RVMS Winter Farmers Market. Look for them at the market or around the Square and don't hesitate to ask them any questions about the upcoming season.
 
Here is a little more info about Liz and Richard. Thank you Liz and Richard for taking the reins! 
 

Liz has worked in EdTech for well over a decade. When moving to Boston from California in 2009, Liz and her husband were convinced Roslindale was the right neighborhood because of the convenience and walkability of the Square. What sealed the deal for them was seeing the Farmers Market bringing residents together on Saturdays in Adam's Park.

Richard is a realtor at Unlimited Sotheby's International Realty and has been a Roslindale resident for 7 years. Richard has been involved in farmers markets and community supported agriculture (CSA) since the 80's. He has been a member of the Farmers Market Committee for 6 years and most recently was the 1st Place Winner, alongside his wife Joyce, in the large yard garden division of the City of Boston Mayor's Garden Contest. 

 
The Farmers Market Committee is a dynamic group, always looking for more volunteers. If you are passionate about food or about pop-up activities then contact Market Manager Dan McKenna at rvmsfarmersmarket@gmail.com or the RVMS office at (617) 327 4065
