“I like to support the local farmers. I will tell you this: something I think is pretty incredible is Mr. McCormack’s work — he is one of the reasons I come here. I like to donate things to his project.

He takes medical equipment to Panama, and I’m a little bit of garbage picker myself, so when I see walkers or anything I think he might use I like to come down and give it to him. I think it’s incredible how, in general, we can be so wasteful with stuff, and I like to recycle everything I can, and help his cause.”

(Chris and George McCartney of Baden stop to talk at the Ambridge Farmers Market, held each Thursday through Thanksgiving)

Erin Ninehouser loves photography for its ability to reveal truths and insights that are often too difficult to capture with words. She believes, as Garrison Keillor says through his troubled yet triumphant character Barbara in Pontoon, that “the only sermon that counts is the one formed by our actions.” A native of New Castle, Erin has made her home in Ambridge where she lives happily with her wonderful husband Dave, their three adorable and hilarious cats, and their “old gentleman” dog, Max. Erin is excited to help tell the stories of the people of Beaver County. You can see more of her work on Facebook and connect on Instagram or Twitter.
