Our Veggie Ambassador was born out of a love for home cooked meals, family, and fresh food options. After many conversations about cooking classes and quick-dinner ideas for busy families we decided that offering classes just meant another place and time for busy families to schedule, which was counter-productive. So, it made sense to share this passion for fresh food and yummy meal tips at our Farmers' Market, literally putting it directly in the hands of the community.
Erick Etzler is no stranger to the Murrysville Farmers' Market. She was one of our first vendors in the early years; she and her husband crafted wood puzzles from upcycled wood and had a wonderful following. (The Kids' Club kids LOVED saving up their coins all season so they had enough to buy a puzzle!) Every week she found guests hanging out at her tent, working the puzzles, and chatting about the Market, food, meals, life in general. Lately she's been busy with other pursuits and hasn't been a vendor for a while but came to us this year with her newest passion (meals and food) and Veggie Ambassador was born!
