Gabriella Lopez is our Farmers Market Manager. She was born and raised in the Bay Area and began her studies in Cultural Anthropology while exploring the dynamics of rural Californian farm worker communities, California Agribusiness, and the processes of community building at UC Santa Barbara. Gaby then went on to the University of Texas at Austin to pursue graduate education and received her M.A. in Anthropology upon completion of her thesis surrounding the historical development of institutional dynamics in Monterey County, CA. Over the last few years, while delving into the realms of agriculture, labor, and food systems her passion for sustainability, community-building and farming have grown. She loves being outdoors, gardening, hiking, playing with her dog, and reading.
