Manager

Jesse Tillers came to New York to pursue a career as a folksinger and songwriter, and spent years singing and playing guitar in clubs on the Lower East Side. During that time she took breaks from the city to return to her native New England and work on organic farms, especially ones that used draft horses to work the land. She is happy to be a Market Manager for Greenmarket because it allows her to be involved in the farming community while here in New York. She enjoys volunteering at the Brooklyn Botanic Gardens, and the adventures of loft-living with fellow artists in Brooklyn.
