A quick conversation with a farmer at the Farmer’s Market about her work schedule and season…

The farmer I often buy my berries from every week at the Farmer’s Market looked tired this week. So I asked, “How many Farmer’s Market do you attend a week?”  “Six,” she said.  “We have markets every day but Monday, when we go to Pike Place Market.  So we basically work seven days a week.”  They start getting very tired about this time of year, she said, when they’ve been running to farmers markets every day all summer for months, often on only a few hours of sleep.  “At this time of year, we wake up more tired than when we went bo bed.”  “Do you do this all year?” I asked.  “No!” she said.  “Through October.  Then we are down to 1 day a week. We go through this every year.  The season starts and we’re excited because we are bored, then by this time of year we are tired and ready for the break again.”
