We are delighted to introduce Simon Richard, a new Kitchen Cabinet Member who is strengthening our relationships with farms and food businesses throughout the Bay Area and guiding our growth.
As a 20-year agriculture veteran and the current Produce Buyer for Bi-Rite market, Simon is an expert in great-tasting local produce. He formerly worked on a small vegetable farm in the mountains of Southern Colorado and currently oversees Bi-Rite’s farm in Sonoma, in addition to managing relationships with small, sustainable growers.
When Simon began working at Bi-Rite in 2002, the market bought directly from one local farmer; today, it receives produce from over 50. His connections to local farmers and food business owners will be invaluable in broadening Kitchen Table Advisors’ network and envisioning a high-impact strategy for the future.
