Past Potatoes is our feature that looks back at some of the awesome crew that have helped shaped the ‘Potato over the years. A few have embarked on some pretty cool life adventures!
What’s your name Lindsay Lee (nee Holung)
When did you work here?
August 2013-September 2014
What do you like, or what stands out for you about The Sweet Potato?
The people. Whether it was a fellow cashier hollering out a produce code I’d forgotten, or a regular customer sharing their book recommendations while I rang through their morning coffee and muffin, there was a feeling of true community in the store that made work very rewarding. I made some lifelong friends during my time there, and still enjoy visiting them on the other side of the till whenever I’m in the neighbourhood!
What’s your favourite produce?
Nothing quite beats the honeycrisp apple. Or the smell of fresh turmeric when sliced.
What amazing things are you off doing now?
I left The Sweet Potato to pursue a puppetry gig in the UK, and since then have been between London and Toronto performing marionettes on screen. My current day job is with a fantastic independent Canadian publishing house, where I can freely geek out about my love of Canlit and CBC Radio, and tell the world about our amazing books!
