Market Central Board Director Eric Betthauser was killed by a drunk driver in a car accident on Tuesday, November 22, 2016. He supported local farms and local food by planning and volunteering in all nine years of the Meet Yer Eats farm tour. He also increased support for local food by participating in the administration of the Market Central token system and other programs at City Market almost every Saturday. We thank him for his dedication and open-hearted generosity to our community, and for helping people of all economic levels to have access to the best in local food.
We will do our best to carry on our work, never forgetting what Eric contributed, and hoping in time that the hole in our hearts will be healed.
