Amy co-founded the Yellow Springs Winter Farmers Market in 2010 which runs Saturday mornings January thru March at the United Methodist Church. She grew up among the corn fields and dairy farms in upstate New York and draws from her experiences cooking as a young teen, a single person, and now a wife and mother. Amy began preparing meals for her family at the age 10. Her mother's kitchen bible was the Betty Crocker Cookbook, her own is the Moosewood.
