Farmers Market celebrates end of season

Darrel and Margaret Christians were honored as Volunteers of the Year after the last Cannon Beach Farmers Market of the season on Tuesday, Sept. 29.

The Cannon Beach Farmers Market wrapped up another successful year on Tuesday, Sept. 29. This summer, the market introduced a children’s Passport Program, showing the kids where their food comes from. Margaret Christians served as a volunteer for it. Her husband, Darrel, greeted market customers.

On Sept. 29, they were honored as Volunteers of the Year during an after-party celebration. Market Manager Philomena Lloyd said they’d done a great job over their two seasons. Margaret has volunteered at numerous organizations since she was a child, encouraged by her parents. She was just “crusing by, walking my dog” when she saw the market and made an inquiry. She started the next week.

The Cannon Beach Farmers Market is always looking for volunteers.

“It’s all about having fun and enjoying yourself,” Margaret said.
