Empathy for Entrepreneurs

I think it’s important that market managers remember what sole proprietors/entrepreneurs go through to open (or open and close, open and close, open and close in this case) their business. Markets can take some of the edge and lonely learning curve time away from some of these folks, or at least invite them in for a spell to find some inspiration or camaraderie.
I admire these folks in a different way but just as much as that farmer with the gorgeous hothouse tomatoes- they’re both a little nuts and a lot dedicated to the health of their community, whether social or nutritional.
