DES MOINES WATERFRONT FARMERS MARKET OVER THE YEARS...
Meet the Manager
SUSIE NOVAK, MARKET MANAGER
My background is a weaving of many areas from entrepreneur, (small deli, event planning, personal organization) to film and television production, to retail marketing and sales. This has given me the skills to create events, understand and work with a variety of people, especially small business and see the big picture.
I have always had my hand in the dirt and was shown at a young age the value of the Farmer. Nutrition ranks high on my list of priorities, so bringing a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, free range chicken, pork and beef, eggs and honey from Washington small farmers to the local consumer is vital.
2020 might change the way we access our food sources but with some creativity and rethinking distribution, we will have a successful year getting abundant farm fresh goods to the table!
Please stop and say hello next time you are at the market!
