Brigette Leach has served the Battle Creek Farmers Market Association as Secretary Treasurer in a volunteer capacity since 2004. Brigette is also a farmer vendor at the Battle Creek Farmers Market. In her spare time Brigette makes jewelry and cheers on the Michigan State Spartans!

Joyce Elwell Wetherill (Market Master)

As a long time vendor, Joyce is well prepared to help manage the market. She has been volunteering her expertise and creativity for years to help out at the market but made it official by volunteering to serve on the board in 2019.

Christine Paver (Board Member)

As a relatively new vendor, Christine Paver is bringing a new set of eyes to the market. Her attention to detail is worth it's weight in gold. Recently retired from Western Michigan University she's found the farmers market to be something she enjoys doing and volunteered to serve on the board on 2019.

Heather Jude (Board Member)

Heather Jude joined the Farmers Market in 2019, shortly after purchasing the business she and her husband run, Fox's Pizza Den.
