In 2003 Deb was hired as Market Master of the City Market. What started off as a job has evolved into a passion. She is responsible for managing 140 plus farmers’ market vendors, an average of 60 Community Yard Sale vendors and the City Market on weekends. She is also responsible for recruitment of new vendors, vendor placement and conducting weekly onsite farm visits to confirm the origin of the produce sold at the Farmers’ Market. The farm visits are one of the many things that make managing the Farmers’ Market so rewarding.
