Farm Market Cafe

Barb Eller and Pat Root met at a local farmers' market. Barb had gotten Pat's name from a mutual friend and gave her a call to ask if she'd come to the market's organizing meeting. Pat never thought she'd really participate in a farmers' market, but came to the meeting anyway. She found herself raising her hand and saying "yes," she'd be at that first market. She ended up developing a successful bread business.
