Born to parents who were once farmers in China, Hui Liang has always had a love for fresh fruits and greens despite growing up in the concrete jungle. After graduating from Stony Brook University with a degree in Anthropology, Hui decided to pursue her ultimate interest, food. So in the summer of 2012, Hui interned with GrowNYC and afterwards with a few other food-related agencies in the city, and today she is back as one of GrowNYC's Market Managers. Hui is loving her new role and feels honored to be able to be a part of so many people's shopping experiences. At the market you'll find Hui always smiling and talking to all her customers in Chinese, Spanish (no where near fluent but learning!) and English so definitely say hi if you see her! Outside of the market, you'll find Hui attempting all sorts of new recipes, reading travel blogs, and walking her 2 year old Boston Terrier, Chase.
