Meet 2018 Direct Ag Summit Speaker, Leigh Hallett:
Leigh Hallett is the Executive Director of the Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets. The Maine Federation of Farmers’ Markets runs statewide programs that help sustain Maine farms, connect market farmers, strengthen farmers’ markets, and widen access to locally-grown food for all. Leigh has been the Executive Director since 2014, focusing on building new programs, developing MFFM’s organizational structure, and building a flexible team of staff members. The majority of Maine’s markets are rural, so she spends a lot of time on the road to meet with market organizers and local partners. A favorite recent project has been developing a map featuring the coastal Maine farmers’ markets, free outdoor activities, and original artwork.
