Were you at the Brighton Farmer's Market
last weekend? Did you notice that Greg was solo at our stand? I took the weekend off, which is a rare occurrence these days...but when I got home the sweetest thing happened.
Greg had SO much to catch me up on! He ran through the day and shared all the details about who stopped our stand and how they were doing this week with names and details that only the two of us could ever appreciate. Then, he showed me all the beautiful food he bought for us. At the end of the conversation, we were both were smiling ear-to-ear.
I think we've got something special going on at the Brighton Market, don't you?
The grocery store is impersonal. You shop for the stuff on your list (usually without talking to anyone) and you have no sense of where your food is coming from and how it was produced. If you're like us, you look for those organic labels, but when you're looking at a pack of chops from Uruguay or eggs from Ohio, it's impossible to know know what it all means and feel the least bit inspired.
At our market though... there is real, genuine, human connection with people who care. The vendors take great pride in producing amazing food and they go above and beyond to share that passion with their customers. And the shoppers (that's YOU!)....you are amazing too because you don't just say that you care about the quality of the food you're putting into your body and feeding your families. You show up and spend your money with the local farms and small businesses that are doing amazing things and growing food the RIGHT way. Go YOU!
This community we're building...it's something else! Even when it's chilly, and we're a little tired, and we have hand-warmers in our gloves....you all make the Brighton Market a place we LOVE to go to every weekend.
We can't wait to be back together with you this weekend for our last outdoor market for 2018! Are you as excited as we are?
Jenney and Greg
