The Scoop on our 2021 Season!
The market opened for the season on Saturday, November 7th in the “Shop ‘n Go” mode. However, due to the rapidly rising incidence of COVID19 in VT and the region, we are pivoting to 100% Curbside Pick up so as to keep our community safe – that means you our customers, our vendors, market staff and volunteers.
Visit our new ONLINE SHOP FOR CURBSIDE PICK UP. Order cycles open at 9 AM on Monday morning and close at 9 AM on Thursday mornings, so our vendors can pick, pack, bake and make what you are looking for. You don’t even need to get out of your car to pick up your orders outside of the market the following Saturday between 10:30 AM – 1:00 PM. Our curbside crew will gladly bring out your food and place it in your trunk. Visit our shop on the Open Food Network. If you have any trouble making your first order, find some help here. Oh, and when you order, please be sure to start by selecting A PICKUP TIME SLOT to help with traffic flow, and remember to wear your mask during pick up!
Feeding Our Community
With so many in our community in need, we are pleased that we can do our part by getting more fresh local food on their tables. SNAP/EBT customers purchase $10 at the market which is matched with an additional $30 in market coupons to extend their food budget. The Crop Cash Program through NOFA-VT provides $20 of this match specifically for fresh fruits and veggies. Our own Food Boost program provides the additional $10 each week in Boost Your Bread coupons, meaning that $10 in EBT becomes $40, with $20 specifically for fresh fruits and veggies, while the other $20 can be used for bread, eggs, meat, syrup, honey, etc.
We were able to launch our Food Boost program in November with generous grants from C&S Wholesale Grocers, the New England Grassroots Envirommental Fund, Post Oil Soltuions, and the generousity of community members. We are continuing to seek tax deductible donations to keep this program going through the end of our season in March. You can contribute to this effort through the Post Oil Solutions website, and be sure to mention Food Boost donation in the note. Or contact us directly if you would prefer to donate by check or have any questions.
When we are able to return to an in-person shopping model, a few things to keep in mind until this pandemic is behind us:
- Masks are required and please wash or sanitize your hands as you enter.
- If you are sick, please stay home or utilize our curbside pick up option.
- There will be no eating or drinking in the market. All foods will be packaged to go..
- We’ll be limiting the number of people in the market at one time, so shopping alone helps!
- Move in one-way direction around the market.
- For out of state visitors, please be sure to check the latest Vermont Cross State Travel Information.
We are grateful to all who have joined us already for a different kind of winter farmers market this season as we all work together to find our way into this new season living with COVID19. We hope you will continue to support our producers through this difficult time however you can. But know this one thing that won’t change – what you’ll find from the market is all local all the time…even our beautiful purple canvas market bags!
Be well, stay safe. Masks up!
