Letter to the editor: Women-owned businesses can be found at market


Back on March 29, I wrote a letter to the editor about "women-owned businesses." I wrote that "I personally don't know any 'women-owned businesses.'" I didn't realize, at that time, that I did know some women-owned businesses. I just didn't think about them being women-owned businesses. I must be getting old.

I want to tell you about some of the ones I know. The ones I will tell you about are all at the Farmers Market at the fairgrounds and are there on Fridays from noon to 6 p.m. It's about "making, growing and baking."

Here are several ones, but there are more. Oasis Handcrafter Soaps and More, to include salts, scrubs, lotions, shampoo, chapsticks, jams and jellies. Next, Two Seasons LLC, it's about herbal products and apothecary. How about, Bottles Remodeled, about bottles and she also has lemon pound cake and talked to me about herbs for my ailments. Another, Handcrafted by Nana & Me, beautiful earrings, bracelets, rosaries and so much more. Must see this one, Crafty Creations. Another one you must see, Debjo's Art Dazzling Art and Jewelry. It's unreal what you can do with old jewelry. Last to tell you about, Beth's Creations, about Bells, Beads and Beyond.

That is only half of the ones that are there. There are several places to buy vegetables, wreaths, plants, pecan pies, eggs, soaps, candles, woodcrafts, meat, spices and even food, boiled peanuts, iced drinks on the outside of the building.

If you have never gone to the Farmers Market at the fairgrounds, try going one time. I love walking around and enjoy seeing people's imaginations.
