On just about every Saturday from May through October, you can find Chancey and her husband Dennis at their stall under a banner that reads ‘Banana Manna’ in the Greenville, South Carolina farmer’s market. Chancey has been selling her acclaimed banana bread at the market for over 10 years, ever since the family she worked for as a nanny moved away to Texas and she found herself unexpectedly unemployed.
