This week is our last delivery of 2013, and it also marks five years of vegetable deliveries from Vegetable Husband!
It has been a wonderful five years with you, and I am so honored to have been with Vegetable Husband almost from the start: first as a customer, then as a basket-packer, then a driver, and now the resident blogger. Vegetable Husband has helped transform the local food community here in Atlanta, and this week we wanted to take a look back at the last five years.
Vegetable Husband started as a business operating out of Margie’s house. Drivers would cruise up her long, steep driveway to load up your baskets of fresh goodies.
Margie runs her business in such a unique and community-oriented way, and I think that’s part of what makes Vegetable Husband so special. The customers, drivers, basket-packers, and farmers aren’t just co-workers and employees. We are a family.
We’ve changed locations over the years, but what hasn’t changed is Margie’s commitment to supporting small local farmers.
It’s been amazing to watch Vegetable Husband grow in the five years that I’ve known Margie, and we have a strong future ahead of us! Like I mentioned, we’ve moved a few times over the years, and we will soon be occupying a new home once again! I mentioned this around Thanksgiving, but it’s such big news that it bears repeating.
Vegetable Husband will be moving into our new space in early 2014. Like our previous location, this new space is in East Point. Unlike our old space, though, this new location has great facilities for canning, preserving, and cooking classes! We are already scheming demonstrations and classes that we could teach at this wonderful new location.
It has been a delicious, eventful 2013, and we are looking forward even more Veggie Hubby goodness next year. We hope that you’ve had a beautiful holiday season and wish you a happy new year. See you in 2014, Veggie Hubby family!
