Our Staff

Mary Ellen De Luca
Market Operations Manager

Mary Ellen moved from Boston to the Rogue Valley with her family in 1995 and a dream came true when they settled in Talent on a five-acre farm where raising children and milk goats became their new way of life.

Mary Ellen has managed the Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Markets since 2005 and has been an Oregon Farmers Market Association board member since 2007 and was recently elected treasurer for a three-year term.

She enjoys every aspect of working with people and feels honored to be a Rogue Valley Growers & Crafters Market manager and serve on a board that promotes Oregon’s farmers’ markets and local economies.

Stacy Van Voorhees 
Outreach & Admin Manager

Stacy is thrilled to be managing the Thursday Market at its new location in Hawthorne Park! It’s the perfect balance of downtown hustle and bustle and artisan, farmstead cooperation.

Originally from Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Stacy is a Penn State grad with a year in Japan and a solo trip around the world under her belt. She spent most of her adult years in New York City.

The Rogue Creamery enticed Stacy and her family to relocate to the beautiful Rogue Valley in '08. She jumped head first into the community writing columns for the Jacksonville Review, producing at RVTV, Master Recycling and volunteering for Britt and the Ashland Film Festival. She lives with her husband, Tom, and their son, Oliver in a 1910 farmhouse in Central Point.

Karlie Ilacqua
Assistant Manager

Born and raised in southern Oregon, Karlie is huge on buying local. It's a great feeling to support our own, which makes working for the market all the more exciting! Currently a student at RCC, Karlie is going to school to get her BA in ultra sound technology. On top of school, and working for the market, she is also a cheer coach for Precision Cheer Academy. Karlie is very excited to be working with the market for the season!
