Each summer for the past three years, the Market has run a summer produce collection. Farmers and home gardeners donate their extra vegetables; the Market sorts them and distributes them to local meal centers and food pantries. A lot or a little, its all good!
This year, the dates for Got Extra? are the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of July and August:
10 and 24 July
14 and 28 August.
We are grateful to Bigelow, Fern Ridge, and Luna Bleu farms for their donations on July 10. The Market sent a total of 65 pounds to the food pantries in Sharon and South Royalton as a result.
