Editor’s Note: Gary’s departure from the Grand Lake Farmers Market is like the second half of a double-whammy that began when Doug Stonebreaker concluded that he could no longer raise grass-fed cattle when the surrounding hillsides were parched from successive years of drought caused by global warming. While we’re going to miss Gary, we’d also like to consider this another example of the market serving as a small business incubator. The only difference is that StoneRoot isn’t going into a brick and mortar shop; they will be providing home delivery instead. We wish him the very best of luck with this new endeavor.
