Meet the New Manager of the Sarasota Farmers’ Market — With Amber Rusch | Episode 009

Most everyone has been to a farmers’ market at one time or another. I think we have one of the very best markets in all of Florida at the Sarasota Farmers’ Market in downtown Sarasota. It’s open every Saturday from 7:00am to 1:00pm rain or shine.

But have you ever wondered, what happens behind the scenes?

Today I’m pleased to have as my guest, Amber Rusch. Amber took over as the Sarasota Farmers’ Market Manager at the beginning of 2022. From our talk you’ll find out: How Amber came to Sarasota …Why the Manager’s position appealed to her in the first place ….What is required to join as a vendor at the market …How she and the Market Board of Governors decide which vendors get in and which do not … What Amber enjoys most about her job …. And much, much more. 

I’m so glad you joined us today on the Sarasota Stories podcast and as always it is my hope that you will listen, learn and connect!
