Faces of the Market – Seven Sundays
Did you know that Seven Sundays got their start by vending at the Midtown Farmers Market? Hannah Barnstable, co-owner of Seven Sundays LLC, discovered muesli on a trip to New Zealand and developed a passion for its heart nature, great taste and health benefits. Barnstable launched her business in the spring of 2011 after hearing about the Midtown Farmers Market. Out of the four original muesli mixes that they sold that summer, three of the flavors are still available and sold in over 4,000 stores across the country!
