Scene: two farmers-turned-founders bonding over how much they love sustainable agriculture and the magical dirty chai that comes from blending his product ( light roast espresso) with mine (organic masala chai).

This fun collab was fostered by our friend Patrick , another beverage founder who believes in the value of top tier ingredients and supporting your community.

When the days are long and the startup road is bumpy, it’s these relationships that remind me why I do what I do and that I’m not alone in this big dream!

I hosted my first ever holiday dinner party for the Open Eye team last night. When I looked around the table, I was so overwhelmed with gratitude for this amazing bunch of employees. It’s been a YEAR- 187 farmers markets, 38 makers markets, 64 demos, ~6000 bottles of chai brewed, and this team just kept showing up with smiles and grace and humor and support. Entrepreneurship can be so isolating, but I feel really lucky to be surrounded by employees that I genuinely like (and who seem to like one another), who remind me of the kind of boss I want to be. They hold me accountable and represent all that is important in our business: authenticity, relationships, grit, sustainability, scrappiness, and a lot of love. They shine all of those qualities out to our Austin community every week, rain or shine. They’re amazing.

To Aden, Bella, Jeffrey and Megan- you’re the best chai squad a girl could ask for.

Perks of the job: sunset views on the lake, friendly vendors building cool brands, and constantly meeting new chai fans. It’s a slog but I sure do love it.

Meet our newest team member MEGAN! We met Megan our first week at the Mueller Market, and when she asked if we ever needed farmers market help we jumped at the chance to bring her bubbly personality on board. She’s been holding down the very hot fort all summer and we’re lucky to have her.

During the week, Megan works virtually as a college success coach, helping first-gen students navigate the college process. She loves fantasy novels, bike riding, and trying new recipes! She’s a recent coffee addict, so the dirty chai is by far her favorite Open Eye drink.

She is so excited to serve as a friendly face at the markets and give people their chai fix!

Welcome, Megan!

Two true stories: my moms friend was visiting San Francisco and popped into the bodega around the corner for milk, only to find Open Eye on the shelf

One day later, I met a couple at a dinner party and exchanged info. When they got home they realized they had Open Eye in their fridge already.

It is an overwhelming feeling to see our products out in the wild, selling themselves and making people happy. It’s almost like we raised good kids who we trust to send out into the world without having to hold their hands 🥹🥰🤩

Meet our newest team member, Bella! We feel so lucky to have this recent UT grad and Texas native working at farmers markets and behind the scenes for Open Eye. We love her bright energy, social media savviness, and her love of good food.

Bella’s favorite things include taking her dog on atx adventures, trying new restaurants, and painting. She likes working at the farmers market because of the sense of community it brings-
“Building a relationship with locals and vendors has been really nice since starting work at Open Eye :)”

Come meet Bella at the Downtown SFC Farmers Market every Saturday from 9-1!
