The Conway Farmers Market board of directors has named Ed Linck as the executive director of the market. Linck has been a vendor at the market since 2021 through his business, Barham’s Ozark Beef. He joined the board of directors in late 2021 to help with marketing and public relations. Linck brings to the organization his nonprofit management experience from previous positions at the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce, Irvine Chamber of Commerce in California, and Little Rock Regional Chamber of Commerce. He is currently serving on the board of the Conway Noon Rotary Club, where he is a past president.
“The opportunity to serve an organization that has been serving our community for over 60 years was one I couldn’t pass,” Linck said. “When you see the interactions between our vendors and customers, you quickly realize why the success of this market is so important for Conway.” Linck began the new position in January 2023.
The Conway Farmers Market is searching for a new market manager, a part-time position. The market manager is key to managing the vendors each Saturday morning. They also interact with customers to ensure they have a positive experience. Although some of their responsibilities take place during the week, Saturday mornings at the market are where they will spend most of their time.
