Free Produce Competition Winner – Joan Walters
Congrats on winning a $50 Farmers’ Market gift card! Where did you choose to use it?
At the local farmers’ market of course!
Tell us a little more about yourself!
I currently live in Florida, but am from Illinois, farm country. I grew up surrounded by corn fields on one side and soybean fields on the other. Back then, my daughter and I spent most Saturdays at the local farmers’ market and where ever I have lived, I always try to find a local farmers’ market.
I work at the Epcot Theme Park at Walt Disney World in Orlando and am a HUGE Star Wars fan. Right now we are hosting a Food and Wine Festival and for the first time there is a booth dedicated to local Florida produce!
