When I first started the People’s Market in 2010 one of our lovely local farmers told me after a slow day at the Market, that it would take four years for the market to gain traction.
Jed, you were right! Last year was our fourth year and the People’s Market turned the corner. With our success last year I have decided that it is time to pass the baton to a new energetic group to run the Market. I have full confidence that this group will not only run the Market well, but that they will be able to take it to the next level. We have strived from the beginning to be a vendor run market and I’m excited to have two of our vendors as part of this group.
My Wife, Sara and I will be trading the Tetons for the Cascades this summer. We want to thank all of the vendors, volunteers and locals that have made the People’s Market into the community hang-out spot on Wednesday nights. We had so much fun spending time with all of you week after week. We will be thinking of you this summer as we turn our heads towards the East every Wednesday night.
We will be having a farewell party at The Bird Monday June 16th at 6:30pm.
Love – Steve & Sara
