You know it’s there, but do you know what it takes for it to be there?
If you happen to drive down Meadowwood Lane at 6:59 on a Saturday during Market
Season you would see and empty street and parking lot. But by 7am things begin to
happen. You would find cars, trucks and trailers pulling up and being greeted by Holli
the Market manager with a cheery Hello! Lenny from Jalenpeno Heavan starts up his
grill and preps his meats for a day of great tacos and burrito’s. Veraci Pizza cuts
firewood to heat up his oven so it will be hot enough for that first pizza sale. The Herb
Garden rolls out of a big trailer cart of wonderful edible plants. David from Suzie David
Farms sets his tables and tents up with one of his cute granddaughters and puts out his
sign shaped like a pig. The Xiong Family is busy putting water in vases for all their
beautiful flowers to sell. All the vendors are busy putting up there tents and tables and
setting out there wares.
Really, the busiest worker on Saturday morning is John Glen ( no not the astronaut).
But he is a hero to us. John is one of the first to show up, he puts out all the tables and
chairs, posts all the signs, sets out the garbage bags and sets up our information tent.
Then four hours later he puts it all back into our storage room in the back of the building.
It’s hard, heavy work and John does it every week rain or shine with a smile. He is a
treasure to have working for us and for you.
