There is a breath of fresh air blowing through Grosvenor Gardens on a Saturday morning with the appointment of a new manager for the Victor Harbor Farmers' Market.
Lea Auerbach has been appointed to replace outgoing manager Brenton Tamblyn and her goal is to make the market "the best in Australia."
Lea attended her first market on Saturday, March 22, and is working closely with Brenton, as she understands the issues with the popular market.
"It is a real community at the Victor Harbor Farmers' Market and it is a dream role for me," Lea said. "The market has a fantastic atmosphere and vendors were very supportive and positive. I think I will fit in well, as my aim is to continue Brenton's good work, keep all the existing stallholders, while seeking new ones that will focus on selling local Fleurieu produce and make the market the best in Australia."
Lea and her family have moved from Tasmania and are currently living at Middleton. Lea's experience includes being a community outreach worker and event management. "We have been here two months and absolutely love living here with the people, weather, beach and of course the market," she said. "I plan to build on what has been achieved at the Victor Harbor Farmers' Market over the past five years."
Brenton said "Lea is the perfect choice. She will do an outstanding job and I am really happy with who the committee has selected," he said. "I would like to thank all members, supporters and customers for making the market what it has become."
Treasurer of the Farmers' Market and on selection for the new manager, Sue Thwaites said there were nine applicants for the position. "They were all outstanding applicants," Susan said. "We were surprised with the quality of the applicants and we know Lea will bring fresh ideas and enthusiasm to the market. Lea will grow our membership and sponsorship, embrace the community and increase our marketing potential. The committee of the Victor Harbor Farmers' Market would like to thank Brenton for all his efforts over the past five years. He has been fantastic."
