Creative Strategist, agencyEA
Sarah is a born and raised midwestern girl with a love of travel, adventure and food. Hailing from the suburbs of Chicago, Sarah went to the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign before moving to the city of Chicago where she resides in Lakeview. She now works for agencyEA, a brand experience agency that unites some of the world's biggest brands with their target audiences. When she's not crafting experiences for her clients you'll find her checking off items on her bucket list, adding to her list of 20+ different countries visited, gardening or rollerblading. Sarah comes from a long line of Minnesotan farmers and her memories of visiting her family's farm as a kid may be directly correlated to her passion for urban gardening and fresh local produce.
What inspired you to get involved with Green City Market?
I love container gardening and caring for my many houseplants and I wanted to take the hobby a step further by celebrating and sharing that passion with others.
What’s the most delicious thing you’ve ever purchased from the GCM?
One word: veggies. There's so much variety at the GCM ... I love finding an unusual vegetable that I may have never even heard of and figuring out how to prepare it. It always makes for an interesting challenge rewarded by a delicious home-cooked meal.
What’s your favorite Jr. Board event?
I'm looking forward to big table dinners!
