Diana Rodgers has been organizing farmers’ markets since 1994. She considers farmers’ markets important “placemakers”: transient town squares that provide access to fresh and local food, the fostering of social encounters, and the stewarding of local resources, ideas and talents. She has been happily managing the Mar Vista Farmers’ Market, located at the corner of Venice Blvd. and Grand View, and held each Sunday from 9am to 2pm, since 2006. Prior to that, she built and managed the Santa Monica Main Street Farmers Market from 1994-2005. She has a BFA in World Arts and Cultures and an MA in Clinical Psychology.
