Tis the season for farmers markets
Warmer weather in most parts of the country makes spring the perfect time to discover what’s new with Watkins.

It’s been a long winter for our Watkins consultants in the east and parts of Canada. But here out west, the tulips and daffodils are in full bloom; the home town folks in our sleepy town of Big Bear, California are coming out of hibernation along with the … bears.
This past Tuesday, we opened up our Watkins booth in the parking lot of our local convention center for the first farmers market of the season, expecting to see just a few locals and visiting tourists. Boy, were we wrong. A perfect spring day had a good crowd come out to pick out the fresh fruit, vegetables and flowers.
They also came out to stop by our Watkins booth. We have been pitching our tent at the farmers market for several years now, even reserving the same spot so we are easy to find. A number of Big Bearians have become good friends who love to stop by and visit, as well as see what new products have been added to the Watkins product line since last year. While we have about a 100 products on display, we always include a Watkins catalog that shows all 250-some items on sale.
When it comes to the out-of-towners, many of them are attracted to our Watkins banner at the farmers market, who tell us they remember Watkins as a child when the local Watkins traveling salesman would come knocking on their front door pedaling his wares. In addition to their purchase, they are happy to learn that they can go to our website www.AllNaturalCountryStore.com to purchase Watkins products online when they return home. Yes, even this company about to celebrate its 150th anniversary has gone high tech! We also realize there are a number of local seniors, who are unable to walk through the many isles of the farmers market.
Therefore, we offer to deliver products right to their front door if they live within a 30-mile radius of Big Bear. For those seniors who live far outside our boundaries, we also encourage them to visit us online.
