Oral Histories

The SFA oral history program documents life stories from the American South. Collecting these stories, we honor the people whose labor defines the region.

ORAL HISTORY

Kelly Clark, Longtime supporter and Volunteer


Carrboro Farmers' Market

A local entrepreneur in the printing industry since 1981, Kelly began shopping at the Carrboro Farmers’ Market in the late 1980s.  A self-described Carrboro Market fanatic, she has shopped, kept a journal of purchases, volunteered, and been a staff member of the Market for nearly 25 years.  Kelly has one of the longest and deepest relationships with the Market and its producers.  Having moved from her home in Nebraska to the Chapel Hill area, it was the Carrboro Market that finally gave her the sense of community she was missing after she left her home in Lincoln.
