What inspired you to get involved with Green City Market?
Good food and healthy living has always been part of my DNA. I want to serve as an advocate to the community on ways in which they can support local farmers who focus on sustainability and healthy eating. I’m excited to share my enthusiasm with a like-minded group of individuals.
What's the most delicious thing you've ever purchased from GCM?
It’s hard to choose the most delicious farmer’s market item (because everything is so good!) But the most interesting thing I found recently was cucamelons! They look like watermelons the size of a grape tomato and taste like a cucumber – delicious and refreshing!
What's your favorite Junior Board event?
My favorite Junior Board events are definitely the Big Table Dinners, and of course, A (Mostly) Veggie Affair!
