Lisa Line has been with the Gatlinburg Farmers Market from its inception. She was prompted by a fellow vendor, Allyson Virden, to bring some of her beautiful strawberries to the market. Lisa has brought fresh produce to market every season since for the simple reason that, "It was fun".
Lisa has continued expanding upon the items she grows learning by trial and error and by partaking in the farmers market where everyone is willing to share their knowledge. Along the way Lisa has learned that shallots and garlic grow well in her area but the figs have proven to be a bit more of a challenge. As evidence of her growing garden and fabulous green thumb Lisa will bring beets, red onions, sugar snap peas, turnips, kale and broccoli to market this week. All fresh from the garden and beautifully presented.
Lisa enjoys the camaraderie with fellow vendors and patrons alike. Lisa's philosophy regarding the Gatlinburg Farmers Market is one we can all support: "Together we are building a community institution that makes this a more enjoyable place to live!
And we are all thankful that Lisa is with us for our 7th season!
