Congratulations on a successful launch of the 2018 season. We’ve had reports of highest opening sales, highest opening shopper attendance, and we’ve seen more opening day vendors to start off a season than in years past. More farmers on their way as the season grows, this is sure to be a bustling market year. With all this good news, it’s is with a heavy heart that I announce my resignation with the City of Moscow effective July 1st. My partner and I have chosen to leave the area in order to be closer to family.  As part of this transition, you are going to see a “new” face around. Amanda Argona is joining our team to assist market staff. As some of you may remember, Amanda served as an AmeriCorps member with the market from 2013 to 2015. Amanda was also the point person for the NEED, FEED, SEED studies amongst other important data collection and planning efforts during that time. You are in good hands with her.

My time here with you all has been very special and I will miss you all greatly. 

Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me as we continue this process.
