Candidates Sought for Board Vacancy​

Pat and Becky McGuire have been involved with the creation of the Purple Carrot Market from its beginning.  Pat served on the Steering Committee before we legally incorporated, has led the education program for the PCM, and was Board Chair this past year.  But now these two Little Falls natives have decided to move to Texas to be near their daughter and avoid Minnesota winters.

While McGuire's departure leaves a large hole in the Purple Carrot's heart, it also leaves a vacancy on the Purple Carrot board.  Pat has resigned his seat on the board effective August 31, 2017.  Our bylaws state:

​Any vacancy among Directors elected by the owners may be filled by appointment by the Board.  At the next regular or special members' meeting, the owners shall elect a director to fill the unexpired term of the vacant director's position.

The next board meeting is in mid-August at which time the Board will make the appointment to fill Pat's seat.  As a democratically run business, we are soliciting names of owners interested in the appointment.  Board service involves one regular monthly meeting and occasional special meetings/training throughout the year.  To learn more about what it means to be a board member and/or to submit your name for consideration please contact one of our current board members or email us at
