MEMBER CARDS are in the MAIL

June 30th, 2015

Member Card CU–improvedMarket members — be on the look–out for a white business envelope from the Market. It contains your 2015–2016 member card.

Membership at the Market is good for a lifetime. We send out new member cards at the end of June each year. Your member card doubles as a punch card. Use it once a month, on the day of your choice, to get a discount.

You need to have your card with you to get the discount (and have it punched.) So when your new one arrives, put it in the wallet of the person who shops the most!


WELCOME OUR NEW COOK

June 24th, 2015

Jeremiah–sWe’re delighted to welcome Jeremiah St. Peter, a graduate of New England Culinary Institute, as the Market’s new chef.

Jeremiah lives locally and has several years of culinary experience. You can expect some new offerings alongside the familiar favorites. Jeremiah is easy to spot; he’s the one wearing the chef’s coat.

Jeremiah has been introduced to the routine by Susie, our beloved cook of the past two years. Susie is off to new adventures.  We wish her all the best.
