Our farmers and local vendors appreciate everyone who comes to our markets every week. For all the folks who go the extra mile and bring a new person along to one of our My Market Club markets, we want to thank you! As a token of our gratitude, each month, My Market Club will hold a raffle for great free prizes. Bring a friend who is new to the market along on your next visit! They’ll get $5 and you’ll be entered to win free goodies from your favorite local vendors.
This month, the raffle prize at Decatur Farmers Market comes from Atlanta’s own Moon Organics. They specialize in high quality alternatives to harmful, unhealthy beauty products. We asked Susan of Moon Organics few questions to get to know a little bit more about her.
How did you get started in the business?
In 2005 I was diagnosed with stage 3 cancer and i threw all chemical laden products away. Since I still needed stuff, i started making my own. Other people really liked it and it grew from there.
What’s your favorite thing about your market?
I love meeting everyone and making connections other than my products. I am a wellness advocate, and I love teaching about changing your lifestyle to include healthy skincare.
What is your number one passion outside of work?
Being a nurse, I am an avid health and wellness advocate and I love helping people make healthy changes to their lifestyle to avoid illness and live happier.
What’s your favorite food or recipe?
Hands down it’s my plant-based fudge! Melt 1/3 cup organic coconut oil. To that add 1 cup almond butter (or natural peanut butter), 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, 1/4 tsp sea salt, 1 tsp vanilla, 1/4 cup cocoa powder. Mix well. You can use it to dip fruit in or freeze it in parchment paper in an 8 x 8 pan to break and eat. Careful…it’s really too good.
Thank you to Susan of Moon Organics for your donation to My Market Club!
