Adelaide Corey-Disch hired as Farmers Market Manager for Utah Farm Bureau Federation
Adelaide Corey-Disch has recently been hired as Farmers Market Manager for the Utah Farm Bureau Federation (UFBF).
Adelaide will be responsible for managing the Utah Farm Bureau’s two farmers markets – in Murray and South Jordan. This includes ensuring the markets run effectively as an avenue for direct-to-consumer food, as well as providing a venue for consumers to connect with farmers and the source of their food.
Corey-Disch is a born and raised in Atlantic Beach, Florida native, and graduated from Florida State University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree. Before moving to Utah, she helped run her sister’s bakery, a sourdough bakery and café that prioritized sources from local and regional growers.
“It was at the bakery, working closely with those local suppliers, that I really gained a deeper appreciation for our country’s farmers – and for turnips (I’m still working on my turnip appreciation!),” Corey-Disch said. “I am excited to be working here at the Utah Farm Bureau, supporting its mission and working with our farmers and the market. If you see me at the markets, please come and say hi, I’d love to meet you.”
“We are excited to welcome Adelaide to the Farm Bureau family and know she will do a great job managing our markets and helping those connections between farmers and consumers to grow,” said Spencer Gibbons, Chief Executive Officer for UFBF. “She comes with good experience and has a love of food. She will be a great help with our organization and with these markets.”
When not busy with the farmers markets or her two kids, Adelaide likes to knit, sew, and garden.
The Utah Farm Bureau markets are food only, with an emphasis on fresh produce. They are open every weekend from the end of July to the end of October and feature more than 60 combined vendors. The markets also accept several food benefit programs for low-income individuals and families, including SNAP, Double-Up Food Bucks, Senior Nutrition Incentive, and Produce RX.
Adelaide has recently joined the staff and is working with the prior market manager, Julia Misiego, on preparing for the upcoming market season. For questions or to become a vendor, contact Adelaide at 904-412-5982 or Adelaide.CoreyDisch@fbfs.com.
