Stephanie Nakano is the ring leader and businesswoman behind the scenes. Her goal is to provide a fun, community market that supports small businesses and independent vendors. She is creative and always brings new ideas to the weekend keeping the market fresh and exciting. Currently, she is putting together weekly pop up cooking demonstrations, craft books and kits for the kiddos. On various weekends, there may be a market basket with money-saving coupons. Stephanie likes to boast,” there is always something new, you just have to come to the market and find out.”
One of Stephanie’s favorite and new creation is a cookbook with recipes from the artisans and vendors. Proceeds from the cookbook go back to support the market and also to various schools that help with distribution. On the website, www.farmergeorge.market, webinars are being added that include fitness and stretching videos, cooking webinars and more.
