When she’s not creating ceramic sculptures or planning her escape to Africa to save baby rhinos, you can find her here at Farm Fresh Market, where’s she’s always ready to lend a helping hand! Meet Becca, who once performed in a choir at Carnegie Hall, and knows from experience that you can’t walk a cat on a leash.
What do you do at Farm Fresh Market and how long have you worked here?
About a month and a half. I do all sorts of things, produce, cashier. I like to help make improvements when I can. I like to organize and do whatever I can to make business run smoothly.
What drew you to natural foods?
I am very concerned with the environment and animal welfare, so it’s important that I learn all that I can and help support smaller farms. I am interested in cruelty-free meat, and the more humane treatment of animals. I am kind of beginning with natural foods, I am learning to eat healthier for myself so I can improve my own health and the health of those around me.
Are you a native Washingtonian? No, I am an army brat, born in Germany. I moved to Washington about 5 years ago to start my life over, before that I lived in Alabama, and Colorado, etc; I’m pretty well traveled. I love Washington! I miss fireflies and thunderstorms though!
What’s your favorite thing about working at Farm Fresh Market? I have some really great coworkers. I am really lucky to have an amazing boss who really cares and is passionate about their work. I also really love seeing all of the local vendors come in with all of their lovingly handcrafted products. Oh, and giving stickers to kids at the register!
Do you have any products you love? I love the Nineveh Za’atar Pita Chips, I love them with the Exquisite and Traditional Hummus, and of course all of the fresh produce. I can’t wait to get some “alien broccoli” aka Romanesco Broccoli!
What’s your favorite summer meal?
Good grilled bbq meat, doesn’t matter what cut, with some vegetables grilled up too.
What do you do in your free time?
I do ceramics, I love to build animal sculptures, I’m very inspired to make some produce pieces now. I love playing with cats and spending any time with any animals! Of course I like to binge on Netflix and things like that, but that’s not as cool! I like to take local hikes, I wish I could turn my cat into a dog so that he could go hiking!
