Meet Amanda Anderson

Amanda, our Wine & Cheese Director for The Hills Market Downtown, joined our team in November 2010, after discovering the store through Twitter. (She was looking for watermelon radishes. We ordered them for her. It was fate.) Amanda's passion for all things food and beverage makes her an authentic Professional Foodie. She also holds the distinction of being the lead singer of Paper or Plastic, The Hills Market's one-hit wonder band, whose popularity peaked at the staff holiday party in 2012.
