Farmers’ Markets & Strong Communities

Hanne Tierney has a passion for selling at farmers’ markets, and thrives on creating her displays and on the chaos of a bustling day at market. Tierney embraces the long-held Maine tradition of farmers’ markets being run cooperatively. She enjoys the puzzle of setting up a market as a whole and working with farmers to encourage them to have a voice in how the market is run and operated. Focusing on creating positive relationships between farmers and the municipalities that host farmers’ markets, Tierney has become an advocate for farmers’ markets across Maine.

Tierney has served on the board of the Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets since 2011 and has chaired the board since 2015. She also chairs both the Downtown Waterville Farmers’ Market and the Portland Farmers’ Market.

Tierney has been farming in central Maine for 17 years. She will speak about the ways in which farmers’ markets build strong communities throughout the state.
