Love, Winston Churchill and Broth - Artisan Farmer Markets

Love, Winston Churchill and Broth

 

Wow, 2016 sure was a fabulous and momentous market season for Artisan. Thanks to all Artisan Farmers’ Market customers and visitors for coming down and supporting our market. Your support means a lot to our vendors and us at Artisan Farmers Market Society. It helps local farmers, bakers and crafters contribute their passions to the community.
 
The 2016 season was also action packed for your board. The season started with the launch of the new Artisan logo, website and online vendor registration system, and culminated with an incredible retirement dinner and many tributes and accolades for our esteemed founder and outgoing General Manager, Lyn Hainstock. In preparation for Lyn’s retirement, we also recruited Tara Immell as incoming General Manager and conducted a successful search for a new Market Manager.
 
In this newsletter, we share a few tributes to Lyn on her retirement and feature tips on preparing broth to help you through Artisan’s off-season as we experience the cooler winter weather. 
 
We hope you like this new newsletter format and enjoy the stories. Your feedback is welcome.
Enjoy! 
 
Bernie, and your Artisan Team

Feel the Love Lyn!

Awesome job Ron! Great way to capture “The Love”, appreciation and admiration Lyn receives from the market vendors.

The Winston Churchill of Farmers Markets 

Lyn's retirement, she cuts cake
As most of you have read, Lyn’s retirement party was a blast. The meal was so beautifully prepared by selected chefs Edwin and Elizabeth from the Clean Plate Catering company, using many of the meats, fish, veggies and other goodies from the vendors of Artisan.

 

For those of you who were unable to attend, one of the highlights was the entertaining speech titled “The Winston Churchill of Farmers Markets” which Doug Lowe, our M.C. for the evening, wrote and so eloquently presented.

Doug was kind enough to share his script. The full speech is worth the read, especially to those of you who are more intimately involved with Artisan Markets. We thought you would enjoy it so we’ve posted it to the Artisan blog along with photos of the evening.

 

A Message to Lyn from Tara, Incoming General Manager

Tara Immell General Manager. Artisan Farmers' Market Society Thank you, Lyn, for many seasons of working to bring local farmers, artisans and shoppers together at farmers’ markets. While buying local, swapping books, reading newspapers and playing games, I have seen strong community ties formed this season. After having been a farmers’ market customer for decades, I am excited to be joining the Artisan community as incoming general manager and welcoming you back as a customer in May 2017.

 

Congratulations on your retirement from market management!

You will be missed and I wish you a hot, sunny and relaxing winter in Mexico.

Best wishes,
Tara
