Cindy Gentry's Perfect Food Day

Cindy Gentry is a soft-spoken powerhouse in the Arizona world of food. She opened the Downtown Phoenix Public Market in February 2005 and is working on a Farm to Cafeteria program for Arizona. She loves Celtic music and got twin grandchildren just over a year ago. Lucky lady.
