Last week, Thursday, September 8, 2016, I was assigned to interview someone who operates a stand at the Farmer’s Market in Poultney where I help at our stand. I chose to interview Tom Church of New York state who sells many vegetables. From my understanding, he does not grow any of the vegetables on his own property nor does he assist in the growing process, but rather sources them from organic gardens. His stand is far from all the others due to someone mistakenly taking his spot. He says that this spot is much better for him as he is able to get more customers and there is a nice cool breeze. Tom told me that his favorite vegetable is the tomato. I asked him why he did this for a living and he said he does it to get out of the house and that he receives benefits from the state, so this is sort of a retirement job. Anything that does not sell is donated.
