Without our longtime customers, quite honestly, the Farmers’ Market wouldn’t be around. We’re fortunate to be part of such a supportive, caring community. Whether you stop by every week, every day, or multiple times a day, your smiling face makes our work meaningful and worthwhile. Thank you.
Our customer spotlights are one way to celebrate our Farmers’ family and show our appreciation for the many ways YOU FEED US with your kindness and friendship.
John is a regular at the Market. And if you know John, then you know what we love about him. His sense of humor. He stops in every morning for coffee and every noontime for lunch, usually a cup of soup. He says this is the one place where he enjoys being treated as a number (he and his wife Laurie have had a Farmers’ account here for a long time.)
Q: How long have you been a Farmers’ Market customer?
A: Since the Mesozoic Age. Or was it the Paleozoic. It’s been so long I can’t remember.
Q: Why do you enjoy shopping here?
A: 99.9% of the time the staff is in a good mood, even Patrick. 87.5% of the time I really like the soup. 100.00% of the time I love Sheik Yerbouti, Black Magic, Nutty Fisherman.
Q: Which three Farmers’ Market items would you bring with you to a deserted island?
A: Cheese – even blindfolded you’ll end up with a great choice. Pickled herring (I may be your one customer for this item). Cookies – any without mint. Not Patrick.
