Athens Farmers Market
Sarah Thurman is the market manager of the Athens Farmers Market. Sarah was born outside of Los Angeles and attended Humboldt State University in California. She learned about farming during service work in Brazil and moved to Georgia to be with her now-husband in 2014, where she worked at Full Moon Farm. She describes the way her experience as a farmer informed the way she navigated this pandemic as the market manager, seeking to support producers and consumers, and also shares personal health challenges from the last year.
