FRIDAY, APRIL 18 is MAD

April 14th, 2014

Katie-sMember Appreciation Day rolls around this Friday, April 18. As an added bonus, it happens to fall in the middle of Passover and just before Easter. If you are celebrating the holidays with family or friends, Friday offers you the double benefit of the Market’s great selection with discounts for members.

Other special things:

  • Capital Grounds coffee will be sampling at noontime
  • a Chelsea dairy farm will sample its fresh butter and buttermilk in the afternoon
  • our cashier, Katie Runde (pictured above), designed this year’s Tunbridge Fair poster. She’ll sign copies from 2:00–3:00.

We’re looking forward to it all!

Raw Vermont Honey

Raw–Nwood–Honey–sNEWLY STOCKED: raw Vermont honey from Northwood Apiaries in Westfield, VT near the Canadian border.

Customers have asked for it; Tim, our buyer for health and beauty products, has found a good Vermont product while our regular supplier is out of stock.

KOMBUCHA KEGORATOR arrives 3/27

March 26th, 2014

Kombucha lovers, hold on to your hats! Carin’s Kombucha is coming to the Market starting Thursday, March 27.

What is kombucha? It’s a lightly fermented tea beverage. Carin makes hers at Heartwood Farm in Barnard. You may be familiar with Carin’s kombucha from the Worthy Burger, Fable Farm CSA, or seasonal farmer’s markets.

At the Market, you’ll find the kegorator by the beverage cooler. We will have two varieties of kombucha on tap. We’ll sell it by the pound; you can buy it  by the glass, the growler, or any size in between–we’ll have a selection of bottles on hand. Just be sure to get a tare weight on your container (available at the register) before you fill up!

MEMBER APPRECIATION DAY on FRIDAY, MARCH 21

March 18th, 2014

Friday, March 21 marks the first full official day of Spring — and it’s member appreciation day (MAD) at the Market as well! Come celebrate with tasty nibbles, discounts for members, and the pleasure of seeing your neighbors. It’s all part of what makes a co–op … a co–op!

This MAD marks the month that we implement changes in member discounts as voted by the Board in January: a change in the level of gold-member discount and a reduction in discount for members who pay with a credit card on MAD or Wild Card days.

For members to receive their full discount, we ask that you pay with cash or by check. Payment by credit card reduces the discount by 2% — about the amount that credit card processors charge the Market for each transaction.

How does that look in practice? On MAD and Wild Card days …

  • Blue card members who pay with cash or check get a 5% discount; credit card users get a 3% discount.
  • Gold card members who pay with cash or check get at 10% discount (new discount rate); credit card users get a 8% discount.

These changes will help to ensure the Market’s long-term financial stability.

Whatever your membership status, we thank you for shopping at the community-founded, community-owned Market.
