Dan St.Martin oversees the day-to-day operations at Oakes Farms Market. Born in New London, Connecticut, St.Martin worked in food service management for several years before relocating to Florida in 2008 with a large commercial grocery chain. Enchanted by the grass roots business style of Oakes Farms, St.Martin joined the team in 2014.
A natural leader and problem solver, St.Martin transformed an abandoned multi-purpose farm purchased by Alfie Oakes into a thriving ecocenter that includes a prolific hydroponics farm, modern greenhouses, organic chicken coops, suspended gardens, and a data-rich, interactive education center.
His ability to transform the operations and inspire staff, along with his reputation in large-scale grocery management made St.Martin the perfect choice to manage the store on Davis after its expansion and renovation.
