Nicasio Soria moved to the United States from Zacatecas, Mexico in 1979 and began working for Martin Bowman on his organic farm. When Martin passed away in 1990, Nicasio purchased the farm, which continues to be certified organic to this day. Nicasio says, “I have been a farmer all of my life, and I enjoy selling at the Berkeley Farmers’ Market with my wife Carmen. Thank you for coming to the market.”
