May Mama of the Month–Marie Crowe

She's a tireless community organizer and advocate for local food as well as a Douglasville native.

Meet Douglasville Patch’s Mama of the Month of May, Marie Crowe! Marie is passionate about her family, God and food; and by food I mean REAL food, the stuff that’s grown by local farmers. As co-founder and manager of Douglasville’s 10:10 Farmers Market (one of Metro Atlanta’s only year-round farmers markets), Marie is an enthusiastic advocate for eating wholesome food and supporting our local economy. (“10:10” is a reference to the Biblical verse John 10:10 – "I have come that they may have life, and have it more abundantly.") Marie is also a true hometown girl; she was born and raised in Douglasville.  She deftly balances her roles as a homeschooling mom, community organizer and devoted wife and does it all with a big smile. (In fact, that smile is likely to be the first thing you see when you visit the 10:10 Farmers Market.) She’s our Mama of the Month because she’s committed to making Douglasville a great place to live. 

Here are Marie’s answers to the Mama Matter’s M.O.M. Q & A:

Hometown: Douglasville, GA

Where do you live in Douglasville: Columbia Gardens Apartments 

Tell us about your family: My husband Eric and I have been married 5 years, however I met him when I was 14 years old.  He was 16 and skateboarding in our church parking lot, and I took one look at him and thought, “I want to marry him!” Our amazing daughter Elise was born in January of ‘07 and she is the light of our life. Eric and I alternate days in homeschooling our daughter. I work at as the Director of First Impressions, and I am the Market Manager for the , that I co-founded. My husband works Part time with Heritage Farms, and spends the rest of his time in writing music and taking care of our sweet Elise. We have quite the busy life, but always make time to take adventures together as a family.

Favorite activity with your family: Touring the many parks & farms in our area!

What you do for fun: I love singing and dancing with Elise, we hold mini concerts for daddy! 

Favorite charitable causes: There are so many worthy causes out there, but some of my favorites are Faith In Action, M.A.C. (Making A Change), and Elder. All are local charities making a difference in our own home community.

Visit Douglasville’s year-round Farmers Market – 10:10 Farmers Market – every Thursday from 4 to 7 p.m. at Crossroads Church.  You can also find 10:10 Market on Facebook.
