FORMER Byron Shire News sales consultant Allie Godfrey, pictured, is the new manager at the New Brighton and Mullumbimby farmers markets.
"This is a great opportunity to combine my skills in sales and marketing with my passion for organic farming and permaculture," Allie said.
Allie, who has been a long-time patron of the markets, said it was a weekly experience not to be missed.
"Not only do you have fun interactions with the farmers, who end up becoming good friends, but you also get to jig around the market to live music and interact with sustainable workshops," she said. "It's such an enjoyable way to shop and you get to boost the local economy."
North Byron Farmers Market president Ian Cameron and former market manager Tony Hinds said they were delighted to welcome Allie to the team.
