You are welcome to submit 1-2 pieces. Decisions on what to include is made by committee and is final. Drop-off date is Thursday, October 30. The show will go up on Friday, October 31.

BALE — Building a Local Economy — is holding some events that grow out of the well–attended series from last fall, “Building a Local Economy.” The Market was among the co–sponsors of the series. Here are upcoming opportunities to dig deeper and take action.
- Interested in local currency and local investing as a way to keep our money local and build economic resilience into the future? The Local Investment/Currency Initiative of BALE (Building A Local Economy) will look at the prospect of a local investment club to move forward with a tangible action. Tuesday, October 2, 7 PM, at the BALE office is the first/organizing meeting. Please RSVP: email@example.com.
- Film: The Wisdom to Survive: Climate Change, Capitalism, and Community. Can we embrace radical change joyfully? Produced by Anne MackSoud of Woodstock with Michael Sacca of Tunbridge. Interviews include Gus Speth of Strafford, Bill McKibben, Joanna Macy, and more. Free. Tuesday, October 14, 6:00 PM at the Barnard Town Hall in Barnard village.
- Film: Last Call: A documentary about Limits to Growth, the groundbreaking, inspiring, and controversial study of planetary limits. Free. Thursday, October 16, 7:00 PM, Vermont Law School, Oakes Hall, room 110.
Feeling chilly with change of temperature? Not to worry — we’re back to offering two hot soups every weekday. Our general rule (we don’t dare to say always) is to have one that is meat–based and one that is vegetarian (and sometimes is vegan as well).
Hot soups, hot lunch, homemade sandwiches, fresh salads — our kitchen staff make them daily Monday to Friday.
Something new is happening in town to promote local artists and community connections. It’s called the SoRo Artwalk — 4th Friday, and the first event is this week.
On Friday, September 26, local businesses and community organizations will open their doors from 5:00–7:00 pm. Everyone is invited to stop by, meet artists, and see their work on display.
At the Market, we’re pleased that Josh Shay of Stockbridge will be here to chat with you about his art based on skateboards.
Participating locations include:
- RB’s Deli
- Royalton Memorial Library
- South Royalton Market
- Tatunka Tatoo
- The Commons @ BALE.
Don’t worry. You can stay as cool as a summer cucumber. Here are three ways the Market can help:
- Local producers continue to bring the bounty of their farms and gardens to the Market. Our produce section is beautiful!
- Susie and Dave are cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Check out our daily soup and hot lunch, and our coolers for homemade meals–to–go.
- The new month means a new selection of products on sale.
The Market will be closed all day on Monday, September 1 for Labor Day.
Enjoy a day of rest!
Joshua Powers of Balla Machree Farm got us off to a strong start with a whopping 60 pounds of potatoes. Other generous donors include Chap Farm and Fern Ridge Farm, and home gardeners Sue Cain, Gary Clauss, Theresa and Neil FitzGerald, and Wendy Judge.
As the growing season slows, so do the collections. We have two remaining: Monday, September 22 and October 13. Thanks for sharing the bounty!
One comment that we received from our recent customer survey said, “the cafe art space is a great way to connect with the community.” We agree! The current exhibit displays work of our co–worker, Katie Runde. Several of the pieces are from a book, Wilhelmina Goes Wandering, that Katie illustrated. You’ll notice several familiar faces; she used Market employees, including Bill in Produce, Dorothy in Cheese, and cashiers Lyal and Sue as models! We have the books for sale ($15). You’ll find them on display with the cookbooks and gift items near the Produce section.
