 Jazmine Schultz is fortunate to have built her life in Minot, North Dakota, with husband, Zach Schultz. Jazmine and Zach recently became partners in Prairie Sky Breads, a bakery in Minot, birthed out of Minot Farmers Market. Jazmine manages all front of house activities, (including the espresso counter) events and bakery marketing. She says, “What I love about the local food and ag community is the DIY spirit of its participants. Farmers Markets are 110% DIY- honoring the idea that there is value and a difference in food that is nurtured, created and made by real humans. Interestingly my work promoting homegrown artists over the past 15 years fits very well with the idea of promoting home grown and made goods!”

By day I am a designer, by night and weekend I am a hot sauce sommelier pairing locally grown flavors to diverse customer pallets through direct sales & digital marketing. Two of my greatest passions are quite literally polar opposites. I own a farm-to-bottle hot sauce business that needs & thrives in the heat of summer but I love winter, spending most of it running endurance races in arctic conditions. I never knew the Red River Valley was so full of endurance athletes until I started working amongst other food producers and area farmers. The hours are long, our feet are tired, but I'm so proud of what this community is bringing to the table
