December 2nd, 2016

December is so full of holidays. Whatever traditions you celebrate, the Market has stocked up on foods and treats to delight you and your company.

Remember that with advance notice on weekdays, we can do gift baskets.

We offer convenient hours, friendly staff, and free parking. You can shop for the holidays and get your regular groceries in one stop.

(And yes, these photos are sideways! Click on them and they’ll go right–side up!)

Good news — our oven is working again. That means we have the full complement of baked goods on weekday mornings:

  • muffins and scones (including a GF option),
  • varied breakfast sandwiches
  • bagels
  • donuts!


November 22nd, 2016

Open Friday, November 25! If you need to get out of the house, bring your guests down for some early holiday shopping for Vermont speciality foods and other local products. We’ll be here!

And a special hint from Santa: we have Advent calendars in our calendar display.

Of Bagels and Lawson’s

November 18th, 2016

We apologize for the fact that bagels will be our only baked goods over the weekend. Our oven is broken. We’ll keep you posted on our progress.

On Monday, we’ll receive a delivery from Lawson’s Finest Liquids. Beer includes Sip of Sunshine — limit 2 four–packs per customer — and Super Session#2 (no limit).

Please note that the typical delivery time is now around 2:00 pm. They’ve added some more stops on the route before they get to South Royalton.

Thank you and happy Thanksgiving from all of us.



Spicy Raw Cranberry Salsa

November 18th, 2016

Fresh and refreshing, this is always a favorite when we sample it on Member Appreciation Day. And as an added bonus, the Market has many of these ingredients from local farms! Just remember to make it the day before.

Spicy Raw Cranberry Salsa

1 cup cranberries, 1 c. chopped apple
4 scallions, ½ c. red onion or a shallot from Fern Ridge Farm
1 jalepeno (optional), 1 clove garlic
1 tsp oregano, 1 tsp cumin, ¼ tsp salt (optional)
juice and zest of 1 lime, ½ cup cilantro
¼ c. maple syrup

In a food processor, pulse the cranberries. Remove to a bowl. Process apples, keeping an eye on them so they don’t get slushy.
Chop the scallions and onion. Squeeze the lime. Measure spices and maple syrup.
Add all ingredients in with the cranberries and apples. Flavors will mingle and mellow overnight.

misty-knoll-displayTODAY’s THE DEADLINE!

Each year we offer fresh, natural, Vermont–raised turkeys from Misty Knoll Farm in New Haven, VT for Thanksgiving.

We get as many turkeys as our customers pre–order.  Sign–up sheets are in the Produce Department. The deadline to order is  November 16.

Turkeys are available in a range of sizes. Please be prepared for some variation even within that range. Realistically, the smallest turkey is 14 – 15 pounds. Price per pound is $4.49.

Misty Knoll also offers turkey parts, priced accordingly. This gives you the option of ordering less than an entire bird.

Pick up is in the afternoon of Tuesday, November 22. Please plan to pick up your turkey that day as we have limited storage space.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Lawson’s Delivery on Monday, 11/7

November 6th, 2016


If you are a fan of Lawson’s Finest Liquids, makers of Sip of Sunshine and other craft beers, you know that the Market gets a delivery every other week on Monday.

The next Lawson’s delivery will be November 7.  It usually comes in around noon (though sometimes it isn’t until 2:00) and the limit is two four packs of Sip of Sunshine per customer.  There is no limit on Super Session #2.

The following delivery will be on Monday, November 21.



New Member & Staff Art Show on Display

October 31st, 2016


Be sure to have a look at the new exhibit in the cafe art space — our 7th annual Member & Staff show. It’s always a surprise to see who brings in work and always a pleasure to see the creative side of friends, neighbors, and co–workers.

If you wish you had something in the show, remember that we do this every year. And to make it easy to remember, Halloween is always the drop–off date.

Thanks to Art Stacy, Candice Cramer, Jo Levasseur, Katie Runde, Kit Farnsworth, and Tracy Gillespie for sharing their creativity this year.


October 26th, 2016

Our 6th annual Member & Staff Art Show is coming up! Ready–to–hang work can be delivered to the Market

  • Sat. and Sun, Oct. 29 and 30, during regular business hours
  • Mon., Oct. 31 before 10:00 a.m.

Full information is posted on this website on the “About/Art Space” page.

Member Appreciation Day (MAD) this Friday!

October 17th, 2016

The 3rd Friday of the month is rolling around at the end of this week. That means one thing: Member Appreciation Day at the Market!

What is Member Appreciation Day (MAD)? It’s a day when we celebrate — our customers, our members, the community in which we’ve been operating since 2001 (!). On MAD we offer tasty little samples and snack. In addition, members get a discount according to their level of membership: 5% discount for blue, 15% discount for gold.

Can’t make it in on Friday? Not to worry. You can use your member card (which arrived in the mail around 4th of July) on the day of your choice. This is known as the Wild Card discount. Present your card, the cashier will punch it, and you get your discount.

Here’s a tip: Fall is a great time for fruit and cheese!
