Ron Gorman

Executive Director

As a seafood vendor of 15 years, a market manager for four of those & years of market board experience, Ron has an incredible fondness for the market community. 

Ron sees markets as a fantastic community hub that we can all rally around to celebrate local food,
small businesses & unique communities.
