May 27,
2010, Langley, B.C. – The Langley Community Farmers Market that takes
place at
the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Langley campus has been awarded a
$10,000
Community Project Grant from Vancity. The funding will be used to help
fund a  marketing manager.

"The
award will help fund a part-time marketing manager position, enabling the Market to
better serve customers and vendors who see real value in a local venue for high
quality ‘make it, bake it or grow it’ goods,” said Gary Jones, president of the
Market Society and Kwantlen horticulture instructor. “In addition, revenues
from market sales will be reinvested in the farmers, crafters and bakers of the
local Langley community. This is a win-win for the Market, vendors, customers
and Kwantlen.”
