The backstory:

Early this year one of the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market’s founding farmers, Nigel Walker of Eatwell Farms was diagnosed with multiple myeloma-- a cancer of the plasma cells in one’s bone marrow. He went to see a doctor for severe back pain and learned he had a tumor on his spine that would paralyze him, let alone take his life, if left untreated. He was immediately brought to UCSF and spent 3 weeks undergoing the barrage of tests and treatments that follows such news. He is home now, resting before beginning chemotherapy.


Nigel has always been a farmer with great tenacity and spirit and even a diagnosis of cancer has not slowed him down. In a letter posted on the Eatwell website Nigel said, “I have everything to live for and quite frankly have only just got up to speed. I was asked by a doctor about my mental health, asking if my glass was half full or half empty. My reply was overflowing. I consider myself extremely lucky. I love what I do.”


We love what Nigel does too, and we know that this is the time when we should come together and support him. This community of sustainable food lovers is a generous and joyous group, and there are many ways we can wish him well, and offset the considerable costs of treatment.

      Encourage your friends who are not addicted to buying from Eatwell when they come to the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market each week to instead get their dose of fresh local food from Eatwell’s CSA (community supported agriculture) box

Keep positive thoughts, daily, of recovery for Nigel. Send cards, post encouraging words on their Facebook Page, envision wellness. You don’t have to part with any money to support Nigel and be a member of this community. But if you have any to spare, we won’t stop you!

Mail a check in any amount to Nigel Walker directly.
