Host Susan Berkson’s longstanding interest in sustainability grew out of her work as an environmental health advocate. As a founder of Minnesota Children’s Health Environmental Coalition and Preventing Harm Minnesota, Susan made connections that inform her work today. Her strategic communications skills were honed as a journalist, newspaper columnist, radio personality, essayist and copywriter.  In addition to hosting Fresh and Local since 2008, she spearheaded the entry of the Minneapolis Farmers Market into social media, a project she continues today.  Susan is also the host of Market Talks on site at the Market every Saturday.
