Yesterday on the way to our daughter’s first college soccer game (Yes, local Univ of Maine – Presque Isle won beating visitor Univ of Maine – Machias, 2-0) we passed a farm truck on the side of the highway manned by a young man going-through-the-motions of trying to direct-market vegetables grown by his farmer-employer.
Our ten years’ experience selling at local Farmers Markets during the 1980s allowed us to take one quick glance which then instantly explained to us the reason for his absence of customers.
Sitting there literally on-top-of-the-display, swinging legs covering and kicking the farm’s vinyl banner, head lowered and consciousness hypnotically entranced with his “smart” phone, the vibe given off was anything but one of really wanting to engage with paying customers.
