Caroline Parker joined Driver’s in 2013, initially as a publicist for the market’s grand opening. In 2014, Caroline helped launch our event series, Around the Table at Driver’s–a monthly series where innovative speakers join us around our community table–and became the event coordinator, booking and promoting each event. With a background in communications, she also publishes our monthly website and newsletter at www.driversmarket.com. “Caroline does an amazing job of running our event series. Her passion for building community through the sharing of ideas and information fits perfectly with the mission statement of the market. She also manages to keep our website and newsletter vibrant and interesting month after month,” said Adam Driver. “We’re so lucky to have her as part of the family!”
Caroline enjoys hosting guests in the market, whether it’s a crowd or an intimate, dinner party-like conversation. “Events take place while the market’s open, so there’s hustle and bustle, and customers stopping by to listen, and that’s really part of the charm,” said Caroline. “The goal is to build community and to share insight with each other. Often with food involved.”
