New Growth for the Open-Air Market
Community Food Connections hires a new market manager.

Community Food Connections (CFC) hired Amanda Wilson as market manager to oversee the operations and functions of the weekly farmers market. Before moving to Phoenix, Amanda worked for the Flagstaff Downtown Business Alliance. Amanda brings experience running events and directly supporting small businesses.

Amanda will be at the weekly farmers market to ensure a great shopping experience. She’ll work directly with the Executive Director on projects to expand the market’s offerings; including educational workshops and family programming. Amanda will help develop small business resources and strengthen vendor support.

“Community Food Connections is gearing up to celebrate fifteen years of the Open Air Market and ten years operating Phoestivus,” said Sara Matlin CFC Executive Director, “It’s a great time to build the capacity of the organization and give more to the community.  Amanda brings creative ideas and energy to the role. We’re excited to welcome her.”

In addition to hiring a new staff member, Community Food Connections is refreshing its branding to encompass the various projects of the organization. The rebranding includes a top-to-bottom redesign of the organization’s website, logo, graphics, and correspondence to better serve the community. CFC invites the community to share their thoughts through an online survey, active until Friday, July 26th, 2019.

CFC is working with HAPI on the project. HAPI is a full service, branding firm specializing in digital advertising, traditional advertising, non-traditional advertising, design, marketing strategy, media buying, and website development.

Please share your feedback and ideas for our brand refresh by taking this 5-10 minute survey.  Honest feedback is always the best.  Data is aggregated, so your answers are kept anonymous.
