Meet one of the original vendors at the Monroe Farmers Market! The Young Female Farmers have been serving up fresh vegetables and baked goods from produce that was grown on their family farm; produce that is all natural and pesticide free!
The farm is run entirely by 3 generations of their family. The Candelario sisters, Cheyenne, Camaryn, and Trae, with their mother, Margo, and grandmother, Clarice Scott, have created a special bond as they work together. Each family member has her own style of working and specialty when it comes to planting, maintaining, and baking their goods. As you visit with them, you quickly see the fun and closeness that they have developed from working together.
The family’s specialty is small container gardening using heirloom, non GMO seeds that produce beets, sweet potatoes, and more. in fact, their okra is grown from 100 year old seeds given to them by a neighbor. “These are
more than just seeds,” says Margo, “these are a story… sharing our family’s AND Georgia’s history.”
Theirs is a story that continues to grow, as the sisters were featured in a recent Huffington Post article: 30 Women Under 30 Changing Food. The
Monroe Farmers’ Market is proud to be a part of this incredible family’s story. Be sure to visit the Young Female Farmers at the Market, and help them continue writing their story.
