The Newest Farmer’s Market You Have to Experience –With Ashley Millington- Founder, Meadows Farmers Market | Episode 021

One of the reasons I started the Sarasota Stories podcast was to connect more people with their neighbors. So it is quite gratifying to me to see other businesses doing the same thing and in the process strengthening community ties.

My guest today is Ashley Millington, a Founder of the Meadows Farmers Market. It started in October of 2021 and is open on Sunday's 10-2 pm. This market already has 30+ vendors selling food, produce, and other artisan creations in a beautiful shaded area of the Meadows community.

In today's episode, you'll learn...

  • Where the idea of a farmers market for the Meadows neighborhood came from.
  • What personally attracted Ashley to help start a farmers market.
  • What Ashley discovered in the few months the market has been open.
  • How to become a vendor.
  • How Ashley and the Board of directors hope to expand the market.

... and much, much more!

It is so gratifying to us that you would stop by and as always it is my hope that you will listen... learn ... and connect!
