Introducing Phil Sattler

 You may have noticed a new friendly face around the Farmer’s Market this year. We are pleased to introduce Phil Sattler as the new Market Manager. Phil took over the role at the beginning of the 2017 season, replacing Derek Grit. Derek put in many endless hours and did a great job, but he was offered a great career opportunity and we wish him all the best!

 Phil Sattler has been involved with the Byron Center community for many years. He has worked with Byron Township Rec Center for over 9 years doing various jobs such as summer rec leader, recreation assistant and scorekeeper. During his years there, he coordinated and led many youth activities including games, crafts and field trips. He has also put years in at Byron Township as an election assistant, helping out with many various jobs during election season.

Phil graduated from Byron Center High School in 2014 where he lettered in football, wrestling and track. He is currently in his senior year of completing a bachelor of science degree at Michigan State, majoring in statistics and double minoring in mathematics and philosophy.

He has two brothers, one of which is his twin. He also has a beautiful family including his fiancée, Lauren and their daughter, Nora.  

Phil has done a great job at the market getting to know the regular vendors, as well as meeting new vendors. He has augmented our market’s atmosphere by incorporating music, but above all, his willingness to help and his calm demeanor have supplemented our reputation of community-mindedness, here at the Farmer’s Market.

Do not hesitate to visit Phil during any market day with questions or concerns. For an immediate reply or further inquiries, he can be reached via email at
