FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Napa, CA (December 4, 2018) – The Napa Farmers Market has appointed Cara Mae Wooledge as interim Market Manager effective Saturday, December 15 . Current manager Charlotte Florent is stepping down from the role at that time. Wooledge currently serves as the Assistant Market Manager and Education Director.

“We are grateful to Charlotte for her service to the market over the past four years helping us successfully grow in size and agricultural diversity, and expanding to a year-round market,” says Board President David Layland. “We are confident that Cara Mae is the ideal person for this transition. She has been working side by side with Charlotte since March and has already proven an invaluable resource, developing the market’s Youth Education Program and using her deep connections in the community to expand the market’s reach.”

A fifth generation Napa resident, Florent recently relocated to Sacramento County to begin building her own agriculture-based business. “Growing the Napa Farmers Market has been an amazing blessing and gift. I have immensely enjoyed the connections I’ve made with the community,” says Florent. “But, the time is right to pursue my dream and I hope to come back to the market as a vendor in the future.”
