In 1908 when Willard [McKinstry] was sixteen, he bought a market wagon and began his own business. Loaded with fresh vegetables ready for market, Willard's produce was welcomed daily by residents of the area, many of whom lived in tenement houses that had no space for gardens. Willard would make his customers feel at ease, and his customers looked forward to his reliable delivery of fresh produce; his reputation as a fine market gardener and a fair businessman was developing.
