Who We Are
Since 2015 Jessie Dixon has been a bright addition to the market, with her experience in the hospitality industry and reaching out to a broader customer base through social media.
Jessie: " I am a part of the Art and Education department.
I manage our social media outlets and support the graphic design team that produces all of the signage, photography, etc. here at the market. "
Unlike many of the market employees, Jessie is an
Atlanta native! "Born in Atlanta, grew up in Birmingham, AL, college at University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) and back to Atlanta after school."
Jessie previously worked as a marketing coordinator for a hotel management company.
"I worked with 40+ hotels around the country providing any graphic design, social media, email marketing, proposal and presentation support needed. I also have experience in event planning and tradeshow coordination."
“I had come to the market plenty of times before being hired, but I love that I can combine my favorite hobby, cooking, with my professional life. I have really enjoyed meeting all the incredible people that work here and experiencing the true melting pot that US is."
" I have always loved cooking, so being able to work with such a wide variety of food is really special for me. I love being able to just get off work and wander around the market. I learn something new every single day. Whether it’s something about a new fruit or a new word in a different language, I really appreciate being able to discover something new. "
Thomas Asfaw and Patrice Kabanga have been contributing to the market in the Imported Produce Department as buyers in partnership and as friends. Patrice has been with YDFM for almost 8 years, is originally from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Thomas is a native of Ethiopia and has been employed here for 3 years. Both men held professional careers previously.
Patrice: "Before coming here I worked as a financial controller for a multinational company in the telecommunications industry. My experience at the market has been very worthwhile. It is amazing to see how people work together and contribute to each other.
The Generational Distinction has been an outstanding contribution to my life since it helps me understand myself as well as other people."
Thomas: "I was an Import Department head for a mega printing company before coming here. I am developing my experience from day to day in the produce industry.
I feel like I am a partner or a shareholder to the market, I don't feel as if I am an employee (my boss is my job).
I deliver what the market expects from me and I am rewarded. It's mutually beneficial."
