About the Manager

Interview with Marilyn Bridger

What interested you in becoming a Farmers’ Market Manager?
“I had an interest in starting a Farmers’ Market in Mohawk. I thought that Mohawk would be a nice location for a farmers’ market, so I began learning how to manage a market.”

What do you enjoy most about your market?
“I enjoy seeing the people at the market. Each week I go around and talk with each of the vendors. It is also nice seeing the people from town visit the market that I don’t often see.”

What plans do you have for the future of your market?
“This year we have incorporated a new market lay-out that will allow customers to visit and view all of the vendor’s easily.”

Do you have any special interests, skills, hobbies?
“I enjoy working on genealogy. I like spending time researching and learning about past relatives and members of my family. I enjoy spending the summer at my camp on Canadarago Lake.”

In your own words, why do you feel that your market is important to Herkimer County and its resident’s?
“I think the market is a great shopping experience for locals. Here they have a chance to purchase fresh local fruits and vegetables. They also can meet the people who grew the vegetables and learn how to prepare and cook them.”
