The People That Make It Possible
At The Junction Area Farmers Market, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do without our dedicated team behind us. Our committed market manager and board of directors goes above and beyond to make sure you have the most positive experience yet. Highly involved with the greater Junction community, our team does their best to maintain all aspects of our Market — and we couldn’t be any happier to work on building a beautiful market.
From the deserts of New Mexico to the snow covered lakes of Minnesota and now to the hills of Texas, Candace has lived in many different climates and places across the United States. Making Junction her home in 2018, she opened The Honey Bean Coffee and Tea Company in 2019. In June of 2020, in the hurls of the Pandemic, she wanted to find a way to draw the community safely together. The area needed each other in this terrifying time in history but they had to do so ever so carefully. She sponsored and created the Junction Area Farmers Market that is hosted outdoors on the Kimble County Courthouse Lawn (previously at the Junction City Park right along the Llano River). Oh, what a joy it is to behold! She picks up the wheels of The Honey Bean each Saturday and serves coffee, tea, and pastries to the locals while surrounded by like-minded vendors under the shade trees of Junction. Candace will continue to sponsor, support, and create Farmers Markets in the surrounding areas. She is a avid kayaker, snowboarder, surfer, runner, triathlon participant and traveler.
So, if you are ever passing through Junction, stop on by and sip a cup of coffee with us, visit the river, and shop the market.
