– From the Yelm Farmers Market:
“New Manager Brings Wisdom and Experience to Yelm Farmers Market”
“Suzanne brings a wealth of experience to the role, managing not only multiple markets in Austin but also serving as Executive Director of the Sustainable Food Center, an organization that works with all three ‘legs’ of the food system. ‘If you think of it as a stool, the legs are gardening, cooking, and farm direct sales,’ she explains. ‘We worked on all three, and would facilitate farmers selling directly to institutions, as well as setting up smaller neighborhood markets for clients that had traditionally been underserved.'”
“This year the market will be opening on Sunday, May 22nd, a day Suzanne is already anticipating. ‘I’m looking forward to watching it unfold,’ she says. ‘You can see it blossoming every Sunday morning as the tents pop up in a festival-like setting. The music starts and you smell the coffee and you can hear the kids chattering away and listen to farmers exchanging recipes or cooking methods with somebody who doesn’t know how to cook a kohlrabi. That’s when it all comes to fruition.'”
