Over time I found the best way to balance the time spent marketing vegetables and the time spent growing vegetables. The St. Marys Farmers’ Market was established as a producer-based farmers’ market with a focus on local products in 1992. At that time I moved my street corner table to the St. Marys Farmers’ Market and I have a stall there every Saturday morning from mid-May until November. Soon after the farmers’ market was established, I started what is commonly called a CSA or community supported agriculture. Each year over 35 households from the St. Marys area sign up in early spring to get a bag of fresh produce delivered to their doorstep every Tuesday afternoon – the vegetables they receive are a selection of what is ready in my gardens that week. There are no special orders, just a surprise bag of fresh, local, organic vegetables.
