We lost a great friend this past week. Someone who would never miss a Sunday at the Ballard Farmers Market. Larry Woelich, a long-time visitor at the market and well known by most of us who work here, passed away peacefully last week, at the age of 78.
Larry always looked for the best: in people and in the foods he bought each week. Although he filled a huge rolling basket with vegetables, meats, flowers, fruit, eggs, and candy, we knew he gave away much of it to his many friends, with whom he worked, and to his family.
His generosity was grander than the elegant clothes he wore every time he visited us. And after shopping, his great treat to himself, and often one or more friends, was to enjoy a brunch at Bastille Cafe, followed by a few puffs of a smelly cigar as we waved goodbye to each other for the day.
As Maya Angelou said, "People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel."
We all are hoping that you are enjoying a big party right now, one at least as fun as the Holiday Galas you invited us to for so many years.
Larry always made us feel special and we will always remember.
Award winning Ballard Farmers Market is open every Sunday, year around, 10-3pm.
