Eleven people applied and five people were interviewed, Powers said.
The manager will run the day-to-day operations of the market, Powers said, and the Farmers' Market Commission, a volunteer group, coordinates and promotes the event.
This year marks the village’s 37th annual food market-social time-donut noshing extravaganza, which has been in the parking lot of , 460 Lake St., since 1978. It will close in October.
