Tatum Evans

Market Assistant, Green City Market

The proof is in the taste!  Once Tatum tasted a fresh, garden strawberry there was no turning back.  Eating seasonally became the common diet for Tatum some 15 years ago when she started volunteering and shopping Crescent City Farmers Market in New Orleans.  Since then she’s sold, consulted, and managed farmers markets from Austin to San Antonio, TX.  Prior to joining GCM mid-April 2017, Tatum worked on an organic farm in Central Wisconsin near her hometown.  Her passion for family farms runs deep having grown up visiting her grandparents’ farm in Dodgeville, WI.  Seeing first hand the dedication, hard work, and knowledge that goes into bringing good, local food to our community, she’s excited to be joining the team as Market Assistant where she will not only help with logistics at every market but also help connect shoppers to the awesome GCM vendors!  

When not at market Tatum is either camping and exploring with Milo, her Australian Shepherd, visiting farms, picnicking, watching her niece and nephew's soccer games, cooking a new vegetarian dish, or enjoying the shore of Lake Michigan.  
Favorite Green City Market treat:  anything from Froggy Meadow Farm and PA Dutch Butter popcorn from Quality Organic.
