The Farmers Market, now established at its new long-term temporary location on the upper Shores property, will begin the New Year with a new manager and two new vendors. Ana Nieto, who has led the market for the last two years has resigned. She wants to develop further her personal business and will be enjoying the market as a customer. The positive energy Ana brought as manager will be carried on by Fabian Huertas. Many longtime customers will be familiar with his outgoing personality. Huertas has a long history with the DMFM, as a vendor for Blue Heron Organic Farm. As a college student, he received scholarship aid from DMFM.
The market also welcomes two new vendors. Suzie’s Farm, which sells an interesting variety of organic vegetables, and Kombucha Culture offering fermented beverages.
Regrettably, Shaner Farms, one of the original produce vendors going back 30 years, has decided to leave the market.
A New Year can be a new beginning. In order to attract a broader segment of the population to the market, the board of directors of the DMFM has been pondering whether to add artisan and other vendors, in addition to the existing produce and food vendors.
