Singh helps Farmers Market sing

When the Port Townsend Farmers Market advertised for a marketing leader, applications came from locals, the director of New York's Central Park, and a San Francisco resident who marketed for Nintendo, Doritos and Cartier Fragrances.

San Francisco marketing consultant Harvindar Singh was selected.

"We wanted someone who could think big, and we chose right," said board member and farmer Kate Dean.

He took over in 2001, when market sales were just topping $100,000 from about 30 vendors. Four years later in May 2005, the market opened with sales of nearly $20,000 in just one weekend. At the end of the 2004 season, the market topped $365,000 in sales with 55 farmers, food vendors and craftspeople, making Port Townsend Farmers Market the highest grossing farmers market west of Seattle.
