I recently decided a good way to spend the wee hours of Saturday morning would be by volunteering at the Memphis Farmers Market. Well, actually Sarah over at Volunteer Odyssey (who has kindly introduced me to several incredible Memphis nonprofits) suggested the market; I just picked the time. I’m here to tell you it was a fantastic choice.
Here’s a deep, dark secret: I love getting up early. You know, once I’m actually out of bed. It’s the whole getting-out-of-bed part that’s hard. Sometime after sleeping through all five alarms, I jolted awake at 5:38 a.m. and made a mad dash over to the market, barely making the 6 a.m. call. Whew.
Let’s start with some fun facts.
1. The downtown Memphis Farmers Market is hosted out of the Amtrak station.
2. Gale is a whiz at the credit card reader. I am not.
3. SNAP/EBT cards are accepted at the market. Whaaaaaaaa!
I think that’s it for fun facts. Here, have some produce.
