About Mary Delicate
Currently working with the Virginia Farmers Market Association and the Center for Rural Culture.

Since 2009 Mary has devoted her marketing, research and web design skills to promoting local food in Virginia. She has created 20+ websites, 600 newsletters, 500 blog posts and thousands of social media posts all to spread the word about local farms and farmers markets.
Throughout this time, her approach has been to train as she works. She shares tips, writes user-friendly instructions and conducts one-on-one training sessions for market managers, farmers and other market vendors.
Prior to discovering her passion for local food, Mary was a business information researcher. She spent her days searching periodicals, studies, reports, databases and websites pulling out relevant data and insights for entrepreneurs.
Mary loves visiting farmers markets and has a 2 to 3 market-per-week habit so don’t be surprised to see her at your market this summer! Word of warning: don’t get her started about local food, nutrition and social media unless you have some time to talk. ;)
