Local Food is So Important!
This last week has been a roller coaster. Life has been stripped back to the bare essentials, and one of those things is food. Food makes us feel good, it lifts our spirits, it is medicine. Our local farmers and food producers are still growing and making food, though finding a way to sell it is presenting a problem. Farmers' markets have been forced to close. Many farmers don't have the means to sell online.
The Bennington Farmers' Market is trying something new---we are offering a pick up service for this coming March 21st. You can pre order from participating vendors online, and plan to pick up in the parking lot of our summer market at 150 Depot Street in Bennington, between 10am and 12pm. Here's a great chance to buy locally, support our amazing local food producers, and minimize your contact with others. I'm listing information below on how to do this, and I will update as often as I can. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns, and I'll do my best to point you in the right direction.
Follow links to pre order for pick up on Saturday. Please note that these are time sensitive!
