Jon Zeltsman

President, Down to Earth Markets


Jon Zeltsman started his first company, Zeltsman Woodworking and Design, in 1974 and managed it for 18 years. Taking from his experience as both a designer and business owner, he went on to start a consulting firm for small manufacturing companies. He became involved with Community Markets, a farmers' market management company founded in 1991 by his wife, Miriam Haas. The group has since been renamed Down to Earth Markets. His interest in food led him to ICE to enhance his work with regional farmers and food producers. Today he is president of Down to Earth Markets, overseeing the company’s financial operations and business development.
