Hannah Freedberg

development and outreach director, Mass Farmers Markets

Hannah T. Freedberg has served as Development and Outreach Director for the Federation of Mass Farmers Markets (www.massfarmersmarkets.org) since 2004, and she is passionate about the power of farmers markets to build healthier communities. Hannah is a graduate of Swarthmore College and holds a Master’s Degree in Environmental Studies from Antioch University, with a specific focus on Food System Education. She has worked with farmers and at farmers markets since 1993. While Hannah has mucked cow barns, weeded row after row of vegetables, and harvested and sold local produce galore, her particular passion is facilitating conversations among people of all ages about the impact our food choices have on the health of our planet, on the health of our economies, and on our health as individuals. From 1996 through 2003, she ran farm learning programs and camps for children ages 5 – 18. For over 15 years Hannah has had a front row seat for the explosion of interest in local and sustainable agriculture. She is proud that her current work allows her to educate consumers about sustainable options for growing, buying, preparing, and eating the food that sustains them. She blogs about her perspective on the food movement, and about what she’s eating, at www.strawberriesandtomatoes.blogspot.com
