This summer has just blown by. We have been at the Brandon Farmers Market and at the Rutland Farmers Market both Friday and Saturday all summer long. It has been a whirl wind adventure for sure and we are gearing up for the winter markets (stay tuned)! We have had the opportunity to meet some great people, both vendors and shoppers alike! We have cooked and baked our little (not so little ;p) butts off and we have had the very rare chance in business, a golden ticket to help figure things out. What works, what doesn’t work, what could work better, and what people really want to work! It has been an amazing experience. Along the way we have been guided by seasoned pros. People who have been doing this; working markets, catering, and cooking for the masses for years have taken us under their proverbial wings, given us advice, help, strength and friendship. This community that is Vermont is amazing. We couldn’t be prouder and more excited to continue on this adventure with you.
Relying on our neighbors, our friends for the food that we eat goes back centuries. We like to think we are helping bring some of that spirit of community back into this modern, fast paced world we find ourselves. We can’t turn back the hands of time and we don’t have to nor do we necessarily eat to. We can have our cake or pies or dinners and eat them too! We can be a part of our community, support the local economy, and we don’t need to add another day to the week to do it! We just need to rely on our neighbors, our friends, our community…. Just like in the old days right?
We love these relationships we are building and how food ties it all together. We can’t wait to see how big this neighborhood gets!
