Hey market-goers! Have you heard the buzz? Each year we give recognition to a vendor of the Watertown Farm & Craft Market at the Greater Watertown-North Country Chamber of Commerce's Annual Business of the Year Award Luncheon. It is a prestigious recognition that identifies a vendor who has a creative display, a high level of engagement with their customers, and who has shown commitment to the market and to market goers.
We are excited to announce that the 2018 Watertown Farm and Craft Vendor of the Year is Bender Busy Bee Honey!
Bender Busy Bee Honey has a variety of honey made products to choose from! Owners, Duane & Linda Bender, strive to provide pure, unfiltered, raw Honey, Beeswax Candles, Creamed Honey and Honeycomb.
The couple began their journey in 2012 when they started a Bee Farm. They produce Honey from Bees that have been raised with no outside chemicals being added to the hives. Since then, they have expanded their product line to provide Creamed Honey, Creamed Honey with Cinnamon, Beeswax Candles, Honeycomb and Propolis, Lip Balms in 15 different flavors and skin salve and soaps!
Duane and Linda Bender intentionally greet every customer with a smile and a warm hello. They arrange their display to maintain a fresh and airy look to their booth. Their community involvement extends beyond the Watertown Farm & Craft Market by putting on demonstrations at the Watertown Garden Club, and explaining Bee Keeping. This dynamic duo provides quality product that can be found at the Watertown Farm and Craft Market as well as the Mustard Seed Organic Store and Jefferson Bulk Cheese Store.
We are fortunate to have such dedicated and talented vendors at our market. Duane and Linda Bender are excellent additions to the Watertown Farm & Craft Market. Their business, Bender Busy Bee Honey, has a fresh and creative display, a high level of engagement with their customers, and has shown commitment to the market and to market goers over the years. They are undoubtedly worthy of this prestigious recognition!
