Winnsboro Farmers' Market
I was hired by the City of Winnsboro in November of 2011 when the Economic Director/Main Street Manager applied for and received a grant from the USDA and I have held the position of Market Manager since then. How I came to call Winnsboro my home is another story, but briefly; I’ll provide some background information about myself. I grew up in a small town in Indiana and couldn’t wait to move to the big city (Chicago). After high school graduation, like the day after; I packed up my car and moved. Many years later I obtained my degree from DePaul University. Having spent most of my adult life living and working in the corporate world of Chicago, I grew tired of the hustle and bustle. My mind would wonder to memories of simpler times in a small, quiet town. After 20+ years of corporate politics, too much traffic, and too many cold winters I guess I had enough. I found my way to Winnsboro when my life partner and I (Valiant Vetter) were driving through Texas returning from a trip further south. We stopped in Winnsboro to visit a friend who was working on a ranch and immediately fell in love with the town and the people, so much so, that we moved here and “retired” into an organic farm business, raising and selling organic heritage pork, eggs, turkeys, and produce. We’ve been involved in the Farmers’ Market ever since.
