Mamaguru at the Farmer’s Market
I’ve been to many, many farmer’s markets, but today was my first time as a vendor at one. For years people have beseeched me to sell my food, and when my town opened up a new farmer’s market, I finally acquiesced.
Today I sold Pumpkin Bread, Lemon Tea Bread, Artisan Bread and Rosemary-Kalamata Olive Bread. Andres rounded out our offerings with chair massage.
Our goal today was just to recoup the cost of the tent we purchased, but we ended up selling out early and making a profit. A few friends came out to support us and we ran into other friends by surprise. Everyone had really great energy and were so friendly. One of the primary goals of a famer’s market is to connect a community to its food source. That’s not the only connection made. I saw our community come together in friendship, creating and strengthening the bonds that hold us together.
Isn’t that always the purpose of food?
To bring people together around a table for nourishment.
Nourishment, in every sense of the word.
We will be back next week. I hope to see you there.
