We Landscape-SLenfestlove sharing the cafe art space with local creative types — individuals, clusters of friends, school and community groups.

In the month of June, oil paintings, pastels, and charcoal drawings by Sue Lenfest of Chelsea are on display. Sue’s deep affection for hillside farms, and the people and animals who live there, is apparent.

Be sure to have a look next time you’re in the store.

Thanks to all of the planners, volunteers, presenters, and participants in yesterday’s great Valley Fest.

It takes a village …. it takes a valley!


June 6th, 2016

We’re looking forward to Valley Fest this Thursday, June 9 starting a 3 p.m. on the village green. All events are free and open to the public and will take place rain or shine. Sponsors include

  • BALE (Building A Local Economy)
  • Royalton Memorial Library
  • Royalton Recreation Commission
  • Royalton Farmers Market
  • Royalton Community Radio and
  • Seven Stars Arts Center.

This is also the start of the Royalton Farmer’s Market season. (If you miss the Thursday market, let the South Royalton Market be your seven–days–a–week farmer’s market.)

Of Special Note: Wild Foods Workshop

Foragers Les Hook and Nova Kim will lead a workshop in the gazebo at 3:00 on gathering wild foods and a discussion on the ethics of their collection. A highlight of past ValleyFests, they bring over 80 years combined experience hunting the woods and fields of Vermont for wild foods and medicines. Much of their lives have been spent teaching and advocating forfest from bandstand the woods and all the other beings. They supply six high-end Vermont restaurants, a CSA for wild foods, and meet much of their own food and health needs with the fruits of their gathering.

They will be bringing many sample for tasting and will answer participant’s questions. If you haven’t heard them speak, this is a great opportunity!

Why spend precious summer hours driving to the Upper Valley when you can shop right here?

  • The variety of fresh local produce keeps on growing — mesclun, spinach, arugula, baby bok choy — and fiddleheads and asparagus while they last.
  • We have a selection of juices, sodas, chips, and dips on special this month.
  • Great sandwiches and salads keep coming from our kitchen.
  • The beer and wine department is well stocked — and don’t forget our 4–tap growler fill station for select craft brews.

Welcome to tourists, welcome back to summer folk, and to everyone — here’s to summer!

SoS–Graphic–Vertical copyWe get inquiries from near and far about the schedule of our delivery from Lawson’s Finest Liquids, an artisan brewery in Warren, VT.  The Market receives a delivery every two weeks, usually around noon.

Because we will be closed on Monday, Memorial Day, the Lawson’s delivery will come on Tuesday, May 31. Please note:

  • Due to restricted supply, we limit Sip of Sunshine to 2 four–packs per customer.
  • However, there isn’t a limit on Super Session #2.


May 23rd, 2016

We’re all feeling a bit cooler now that we have refrigeration in the grab–and–go cases that hold sandwiches, salads, meals to go, pies and cupcakes, juice, water, sodas, and beer.

Stop by and see what we have!

Kristen is a familiar face to many Market customers as a cashier. Now she’s at the Market in two roles, cashier and cheese buyer.

Kristen takes over the cheese department from Wendy Judge. Wendy has been at the Market since 2004, first as grocery buyer, then as general manager, followed by working part–time in cheese. She’ll continue in a “field” related to dairy as she works full time at Bob White (small scale dairy) Systems in Royalton.

We welcome Kristen in her new role!
