Western North Carolina is a resource rich area with local farmers who are passionate about their produce and passionate about sharing it with the community. It is important to keep this close-knit community together in order to grow and share the experience and health benefits. During the colder winter months, many people find it hard to stay in touch with their fresh, local diets. The Western North Carolina Tailgate market wanted to remedy this problem by setting up an easily assessable indoor location that is available to the public weekly. Managing the WNC winter tailgate has enabled me the experience of seeing the high demand from the community. In order to keep this energy alive, I will create a market manager manual with all the information for a successfully run market to uphold the community.
