For this edition of Vendor Spotlight, we'd like to focus on Grandma MB's Baked Goods. She's a delightful cook, a fabulous dresser, and her apron it simply too cute! You might know her as Mary Chipps, the lady who bakes wonderful breads, pies, cookies, and cakes, but what else do you know about her?
Mary sells at the De Soto Farmers' Market because she thinks it is important to support local farmers and artisans. Although she's a first-year vendor at the Market, her goals are similar to those of other vendors: make a little money and learn about what works and what doesn't. Her biggest challenge is making enough product to keep her customers happy.
She sells at the Crystal City Farmers' Market on Wednesday evenings, as well as her booth at our market on Saturdays. Like so many customers and vendors, Mary likes the atmosphere of the Market; getting to know return customers and what they like, meeting vendors who have unique and interesting backgrounds, and basically visiting with so many good folks! It's what makes the De Soto Farmers' Market such a rewarding experience, and we're happy that Grandma MB's Baked Goods is a part of it.
