On this rainy market Monday we are here to brighten your day with a spotlight on one of CitySeed's longest running volunteers, Janet! Janet has volunteered at the Edgewood Park Farmers Market since it began almost 20 years ago. She explains that it was really a group of volunteers that drummed up support for the market to happen in the Westville neighborhood. "I love getting to know the vendors and setting up the vegetables." As a now semi-retired therapist, Janet enjoys devoting her Sundays to helping vendors at the market. Janet led a children's activity creating nature bookmarks this past Sunday. We are so thankful for Janet's ongoing support of our Edgewood Park Farmers Market.
