Emily Blanquera (She/Her)

Operations Assistant


Emily’s happy to be back with Green City Market this season! She caught the sustainable agriculture bug working for a CSA in Brewster, NY and has been living seasonally ever since. Since moving to Chicago, she’s worked at Growing Solutions Farm and as a freelance lighting designer and electrician. Before her time in New York, Emily grew up in Ohio, where she studied Drama, French, and Spanish at Kenyon College and spent her summers in the sun (and rain) as a program director of a summer camp.
