Subject: Grand Openimg of B. Street Farmers Market

Hello to All,

You have been supportive of this project to start a local farmers market and yesterday it paid off with the grand opening of the B. Street Farmers Market. Thank you for your ongoing interest.

I always expected that the market would grow slowly. I didn’t think anyone would show up the first day. I only advertised by putting out one post on a Kemp Mill Facebook page.

I was overwhelmed and unprepared by the half-dozen or so customers we got, including some who wanted double orders. Most learned about the market from Facebook. Some however were neighbors who just chanced upon us. I did not make enough dough and could not serve them all. The bread didn’t turn out as well as I would have liked, but I did get some positive feedback.

Another lesson that I learned yesterday is that I cannot do this on my own. I had two workers with me. Kobie is the market manager and Benji assisted him as the cashier. Without them dealing directly with customers I could not have focused on the cooking.

Next week we will try this again.
