Who’s Who around the Market…

  • Anne Flusche

    Market Director
    Anne’s childhood training as a dumpster diver taught her to see the value and beauty in just about every single
    thing. Her proper education led her to explore fields such as architectural design, planning, graphics, and festival management,
    and it seems that the HOPE Farmer’s Market is a perfect fit to keep all of those skills honed to a sharp point. Anne’s
    favorite part of working with the HOPE Farmer’s Market is helping to promote small businesses and local foods.

  • Chloe Buzzotta

    Market Manager
    Chloe started her journey of local foods in Canada, specifically Quebec. She lived in a community that emphasized the importance of growing their own. Local produce meant; self reliance of basic needs, cutting our carbon footprint, and building community. Food systems became her medium for environmental activism.
    Next, she moved to New Mexico, to learn the techniques of organically growing food with low maintenance and little resources. She learned how to be harmonious with the Earth in order to harvest bounties of fresh food.
    Today she lives in Austin, TX. She works at a permaculture design and installation business, Symbiosis Regenerative Systems. On Sundays, you can find her managing the HOPE Farmers Market, fulfilling her passion of local foods and community.

    Farm Stand Managers

    The HOPE Farm Stand supports small urban and rural growers, redistributes surplus, reduces waste, and increases access to
    healthy food in East Austin.
    Each week individuals, community gardeners and small farmers sell their surplus produce to the
    Farm Stand, giving growers the chance to earn extra income while keeping good food from going to waste. The project provides a
    meaningful link between the market and the community, connecting a diverse range of consumers and growers through the exchange of
    beautiful, high-quality produce. Interested gardeners should contact Danny for more information.

    Contact Yard-to-Market
    if you’d like to apply to sell veggies at the HOPE Farm Stand.
