What inspired you to get involved with Green City Market?

My love for food, bringing people together, and making good food accessible to all. 

What’s the most delicious thing you’ve ever purchased from the GCM?

A bag of Concord Grapes that I turned into fresh jelly that afternoon.

What’s your favorite Jr. Board event?

The Big Table dinners put on throughout the summer because of the opportunities they create for bringing people together from all walks of life over a delicious meal.
