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:
  • 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.

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.

September already?!?

Don’t worry. You can stay as cool as a summer cucumber. Here are three ways the Market can help:

  1. Local producers continue to bring the bounty of their farms and gardens to the Market. Our produce section is beautiful!
  2. 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.
  3. The new month means a new selection of products on sale.

Stop in!

Got_Extra_Veg_ColorThanks for this week’s Got Extra donations. We received 208 pounds of fresh produce on Monday morning. As we say, a little or a lot, it’s all good. We’re up to 380 pounds for the season.

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, WilhelSue and Cow–smina 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.
