Pawling Public Radioâ€™s 2012 Summer Interns had a blast at this seasonâ€™s Farmerâ€™s Market.Â From meeting community members to the different musical guests every week, the Farmers Market on Saturday mornings was the place to be for them. The weather was beautiful and everyone had such a great time. The community had a place to meet and buy produce from local vendors, and the interns had an opportunity to conduct their â€śMan on the Greenâ€ť interviews.
Every Saturday, the interns (Christian, Katherine, and Michael) went out on the hunt for market patrons to interview.Â Every week there was a new probing question to be answered!Â The question on July 7th was â€śWhat is your favorite Veggie?â€ťÂ The overall favorite veggie at the Farmerâ€™s Market that weekend was kale.Â July 14thâ€™s question was â€śWhat is your favorite Veggie Recipe?â€ť Responses included many favorite delicious recipes, but the most mouth-watering was Bob Arthurâ€™s Zucchini concoction.Â On July 21st the question of the week was â€śWhat do you think of the Farmers Market this year?â€ťÂ The answer was a very positive one. Â The community seems very pleased with all that this yearâ€™s market has to offer.Â The internâ€™s last and final question was asked July 28th, â€śWhat would you like to see more of at the Farmers Market?â€ťÂ Overall, no one wanted to change a thing (except to have more local venders).
Also, during PPRâ€™s four week stay at the market, the interns had exclusive interviews with musicians who were featured performers for each week.Â These interviews air at the end of the â€śMan on the Greenâ€ť interviews, which are now airing on 101.7FM or steaming on pawlingpublicradio.org.Â The station is also available on the free app Tune In Radio for your Apple products, so there are lots of ways to listen. The interviews are also embedded into this article, so just click and enjoy!Â Tune in and hear what your friends, neighbors, and relatives have to say.
The PPR interns would like to thank Terry Deegan, the Farmerâ€™s Market Board and Committee. And a special thank you to everyone in the community who participated in their â€śMan on the Greenâ€ť interviews, allowing them to polish their interviewing skills.
Although their internship with Pawling Public Radio has come to an end, the Farmerâ€™s Market will continue through October 6, every Saturday morning from 9 a.m. to noon.
