I grew up in South Carolina in a small, rural, "emotionally-connected" town and have been vegetarian for 26 years. I was taught to wake up in the morning, brush your teeth, wash your face and GIVE BACK TO YOUR COMMUNITY! When the Bluffton Farmer's Market became supported by the Rotary Club three years ago, I knew right away I wanted my seven year old boy, Cody and I to get involved. I was so impressed with the energy of the board and their dedication to do "great things" for our community. Since that first beautiful Thursday morning at the Oyster Company, my boy and I have been the ones to be blessed by our involvement with all the special vendors and great folks in our town that keep supporting the market!
