IMPROVED ECONOMIC PICTURE for the MARKET

August 25th, 2015

Life goes in cycles, and we’re pleased to say that the Market’s financial picture is looking good.

The Market’s Board has the authority to adjust member and staff benefits, as needed, for the health of the coop. That phrase, “health of the coop,” is important. It gives flexibility to the Board to act in our collective best interest.

Eighteen months ago, the Board voted to reduce the discount for gold–level members while keeping blue–level benefits the same. There were also modest reductions in staff health benefits.

Our good news now: the financial footing of the store feels solid again, so benefits have just been returned to their former levels. Blue–level members continue to receive a 5% discount, as they always have. The gold–level discount has been returned to its original 15%. Staff health benefits have returned to their prior levels as well.

Thanks to everyone who has made this possible.


WOW! IT’s MAD AGAIN!

August 18th, 2015

Wow! Member Appreciation Day rolls ’round again this Friday, August 21.

What is Member Appreciation Day? It happens once a month on the 3rd Friday of the month. Members get a discount on their purchases. Blue members, who have paid $50 for their membership, get a 5% discount; gold members, who have paid $200, get a 10% discount. Membership is a one–time fee/investment in our locally owned and operated cooperative.

If you’ve been considering a Market membership, you can download our membership brochure from the “Member” tab of this website or pick up a paper copy, posted by the registers and at the door, any time you come in the store.


TUNBRIDGE WORLD’s FAIR POSTERS

August 12th, 2015

Sylvia–s

We have the new 2015 Tunbridge World’s Fair poster for sale at the Market. And because the poster artist is Sylvia Spain of the Produce Department, we’re pleased to offer both signed and unsigned copies. Cost is $5, which goes to the Fair committee. Fair dates: September 17–20.


LOTS of LOCAL!

July 29th, 2015

FlowersOur Produce department has lots of products from local farms, including these beautiful bouquets from the Farm at Mill Village in South Royalton. Here’s the current list of local fruits and vegetables:

  • Broccoli and cauliflowerMeg
  • Beets and carrots
  • Snap peas and snow peas
  • Spinach, arugula, and mesclun
  • Celery and scallions
  • Cucumbers, zucchini, and summer squash
  • New potatoes!
  • Blueberries and raspberries!

 


IT’S FRUIT SEASON!

July 22nd, 2015

MegIt’s the wonderful time of the year when we have all kinds of fresh fruit to choose from: local blueberries and raspberries and peaches and nectarines from Pennsylvania.

Eat them plain; dress them up with cream, yogurt, or creme fraiche; and/or freeze them to enjoy in winter. Blueberries are the easiest of all: just spread them out on a cookie sheet, freeze in to individual “marbles,” and store them in the freezer. They’ll be great in baked goods in winter.

 

 


MEMBER APPRECIATION this FRIDAY, JULY 17

July 13th, 2015

Wow! The 3rd Friday of the month rolls around at the end of the week, so that means it is Member Appreciation Day (MAD)!

MADs are special to us; we put out tasty little food snacks, people stop to socialize more, and members get a discount on their purchases.

If you are a member but can’t get to the Market on MAD, remember to use your Wild Card (membership punch card) to get a discount on the day of your choice once a month.

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!
