Michelle Dudley, Co-Director first assumed Market Manager duties with Crossroads Farmers Market in May 2008, and has since developed a great sense of familiarity and community in the Crossroads “International Corridor.” Prior to her work with the Crossroads Market, Dudley last held the position as Coordinator for the Intercultural Living Exchange at University of Maryland, Baltimore County. Dudley also served as a sustainable agriculture volunteer with the Peace Corps in Guatemala and has completed volunteer farm-stays in both the U.S. and Argentina. Dudley holds a B.A. in Spanish Language, Culture & Literature from Syracuse University and earned her M.A. in Intercultural Communication in 2008 while participating in the Shriver Peaceworker Graduate Fellowship at UMBC. Even when Dudley is not focusing on work, she can still be found planting, promoting, harvesting and/or taking other culinary adventures with dinosaur kale and green zebras.

Michele Levy, Co-Director joined the Crossroads Market team in May 2009 as a Market Assistant and quickly fell in love with both the market and the broader Crossroads community. Prior to her work with the Crossroads Farmers Market, Levy most recently worked as Program Coordinator for the Center for A New American Dream in Takoma Park, Maryland, conducting on- and off-line outreach for the organization’s campaigns and discovering her passion for sustainable agriculture and food justice. After earning her B.A. in Middle Eastern Studies and Women’s Studies from Dickinson College in 2006, Levy was awarded a Fulbright fellowship to Bar Ilan University in Israel, researching challenges of integration and adaptation facing the Ethiopian immigrant community in Israel. When not living and breathing Crossroads, Levy can be found selling cheese for Keswick Creamery at other area markets, cooking and baking up a big veggie storm, or finding a quiet moment on her yoga mat.

Rosa Sanchez, SNAP Outreach Coordinator
joined the Crossroads Farmers Market in May 2009 as a Market Assistant. As a resident of Takoma Park for 12 years, a Community Connector for Montgomery County Department of Health and Human Services, and a Community Organizer for Impact Silver Spring, Rosa’s connections to the Crossroads community are an invaluable asset to the organization’s outreach efforts. In November 2009, Rosa was invited to join and co-chair the Outreach and Education committee of the Crossroads Farmers Market Board of Directors. Rosa brings an astounding number of community connections, an ever-vibrant sense of humor, and a deep commitment to serving her friends and neighbors to the market each week.
