    The Capital City Farmers Market moves to State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. Shop from 50 local farms and producers all season long, rain or shine. All products are grown or hand made by vendors from Central Vermont. Featuring live music through September.

    www.montpelierfarmersmarket. com

    Full State Street Move Information:

    This year is the Capital City Farmers Market’s 41st season, and there will be some big changes. Our outdoor market will be held at a new location on State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. We trialed this location last Fall for three market days, and it was a huge success. State Street will be shut down between Main St. and Elm St. on market days which makes for an easily walkable downtown area. Our regular market lot will be open for parking, which will be a net gain of parking spots compared to what we take up on the Street.

    The market itself will offer the same great vendor mix that makes the market such a fun destination for locals and visitors to the area. We feature over 65 full time and seasonal vendors from Central Vermont that grow or make 100% of the products they sell. This includes everything from seasonal produce to small batch cheese and one of a kind crafts. The majority of our vendors this season are returning vendors, but we do have some new craft and local food vendors that will be at the market part time.

    The outdoor market begins May 5th, during Montpelier’s May Day festivities. The market is open from 9:00 to 1:00 every Saturday from May through October. Our live music series begins May 19th and runs all Summer long. People can stay up to date on market vendors, music, and events by following us on Facebook, signing up for our weekly newsletter, or going to montpelierfarmersmarket.com

    On Saturday, May 5th, from 2-6 pm the farmers, fermentors and chefs of Fable Farm will open the doors to their fermentory for an open house and portfolio wine tasting paired with small plates of food from their farm. They’ve been on a bottling bananza this Winter, corking  cuvées from 2015-2017, and are poised to share their line-up of place based wines made from apples, pears, grapes, honey, tree saps and more. “We’re excited to celebrate around the abundance of  seasons past, brought into the present by the art of fermentation,” exclaims Jon Piana co-owner and winemaker for Fable Farm. A bar will be open for tasting on each level of their fermentory facility, that consists of a wine cave, vinegar room, wood fired masonry hearth, community hall whose timbers are restored from an eighteenth century barn, and an orchard of both elder and fledgling fruit trees.  Accompanying their ciders will be a honey wine made with birch sap and sumac berries, grape-apple blends, and the inaugural release of their Vermont grown grape wines, made with both red and white grapes from 2016 and 2017 vintages.

    The evening costs $20 and includes samples of 10 different Fable cuvées, including the official release of wines made with Vermont grapes from 2016 and 2017 vintages – as well as small plates of Vermont cheeses, house cured meats, sourdough woodfired pizzas, farm krauts and fire roasted meats.

    Sunday, May 6, 2018 – Jack Mayer is a Vermont writer and pediatrician. His new book, Before The Court Of Heaven, is historical fiction and has received 13 book awards. Based on the true story of Ernst Techow, a fascist assassin complicit in the 1922 murder of the highest-ranking Jew in Weimar Germany, Foreign Minister Walther Rathenau, Before The Court Of Heaven is inspired by the history of how Germany’s Weimar democracy became the Nazi dictatorship – a cautionary tale for today.  A vivid history of Germany from the beginning of the 20th Century to World War II and a tender love story.  On trial for his life, Techow receives an unfathomable offer of forgiveness that sets him on a complex and harrowing journey of redemption. Scholars of history and the Holocaust have vetted Before The Court Of Heaven for historical accuracy.

    Award-winning authors of books with Jewish historical themes will be speaking at Beth Jacob this spring.  Each talk and/or slide show will include a light supper of salad, bread and cheese and something else. 6-7:30   Free and open to the public.

    Special Needs Planning is essential to protect and plan for your disabled child or grandchild. Most families know that not having the right plans in place can be detrimental to people with special needs, but they don’t know where to begin.

    This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what families need to know about special needs planning, including such essentials as protecting important government benefits like SSI and Medicaid; avoiding Medicaid “paybacks” to the state; constructing a will that doesn’t conflict with a person’s ability to access government services; constructing and funding of a Special Needs Trust; and how to provide guidance to future caregivers.

    This workshop is presented by Attorney Claudia I. Pringles,  whose practice includes Special Needs Planning and Estate Planning.  Also contributing to this workshop will be Financial Advisor Gabriel Lajeunesse, who has experience helping families plan for their future and for the lifelong needs of their disabled family member. Click here for Gabe’s bio.

    EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION:  Register 5 or more calendar days prior to a workshop to be entered into a drawing to receive a lovely  gardening bag and tool set.  You must be present at the workshop to win.

    Brief Event Description:

    The Capital City Farmers Market moves to State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. Shop from 50 local farms and producers all season long, rain or shine. All products are grown or hand made by vendors from Central Vermont. Featuring live music through September.

    www.montpelierfarmersmarket. com

    Full State Street Move Information:

    This year is the Capital City Farmers Market’s 41st season, and there will be some big changes. Our outdoor market will be held at a new location on State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. We trialed this location last Fall for three market days, and it was a huge success. State Street will be shut down between Main St. and Elm St. on market days which makes for an easily walkable downtown area. Our regular market lot will be open for parking, which will be a net gain of parking spots compared to what we take up on the Street.

    The market itself will offer the same great vendor mix that makes the market such a fun destination for locals and visitors to the area. We feature over 65 full time and seasonal vendors from Central Vermont that grow or make 100% of the products they sell. This includes everything from seasonal produce to small batch cheese and one of a kind crafts. The majority of our vendors this season are returning vendors, but we do have some new craft and local food vendors that will be at the market part time.

    The outdoor market begins May 5th, during Montpelier’s May Day festivities. The market is open from 9:00 to 1:00 every Saturday from May through October. Our live music series begins May 19th and runs all Summer long. People can stay up to date on market vendors, music, and events by following us on Facebook, signing up for our weekly newsletter, or going to montpelierfarmersmarket.com

    Brief Event Description:

    The Capital City Farmers Market moves to State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. Shop from 50 local farms and producers all season long, rain or shine. All products are grown or hand made by vendors from Central Vermont. Featuring live music through September.

    www.montpelierfarmersmarket. com

    Full State Street Move Information:

    This year is the Capital City Farmers Market’s 41st season, and there will be some big changes. Our outdoor market will be held at a new location on State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. We trialed this location last Fall for three market days, and it was a huge success. State Street will be shut down between Main St. and Elm St. on market days which makes for an easily walkable downtown area. Our regular market lot will be open for parking, which will be a net gain of parking spots compared to what we take up on the Street.

    The market itself will offer the same great vendor mix that makes the market such a fun destination for locals and visitors to the area. We feature over 65 full time and seasonal vendors from Central Vermont that grow or make 100% of the products they sell. This includes everything from seasonal produce to small batch cheese and one of a kind crafts. The majority of our vendors this season are returning vendors, but we do have some new craft and local food vendors that will be at the market part time.

    The outdoor market begins May 5th, during Montpelier’s May Day festivities. The market is open from 9:00 to 1:00 every Saturday from May through October. Our live music series begins May 19th and runs all Summer long. People can stay up to date on market vendors, music, and events by following us on Facebook, signing up for our weekly newsletter, or going to montpelierfarmersmarket.com

    Montpelier’s first “Pedestrian Scramble” was so well received that a new Scramble is being offered this year on Saturday, May 19 (2:00 – 4:00 pm) and you’re invited to join the fun! As someone who participated in last year’s Scramble, I can vouch for the fact that everyone who participates will come away with an enhanced appreciation of our wonderful little city.

    What’s a “Scramble?” It’s a free event where participants gather at a central location and receive a street map and a sheet containing a list of destinations along with questions about them. Each destination has a value attached. Participants score points by walking to destinations in the most efficient manner and correctly answering the questions. There will be small prizes for those who score highest. Participants are given 15 minutes to plan their routes and then begin walking on either a shorter, flatter Scramble or a longer Scramble, which involves some hills. The rules forbid the use of bicycles, cars, or other means of transportation.

    The Scramble is open to individuals and groups of all ages. Parents and children can participate along with teens and senior citizens.

    While this is a semi-competitive event, your focus doesn’t have to be on winning. You’ll see and learn so much more about Montpelier simply by striding to a few of the destinations. When you join in a Scramble, you become aware of things you haven’t ever noticed before: paint colors, design elements, vistas, and artwork. Scrambling is a healthy activity that enables you to become a more informed member of the community.

    You can find more information about the May 19 Scramble at the Kellogg-Hubbard Library Community Table. On the day of the Scramble, please wear good walking shoes, bring a watch, a pen, and a water bottle and you’ll be all set. (In the event of rain, the Scramble will be held on Sunday May 20.) Many thanks to Harris Webster who introduced the Scramble to Montpelier last year and who is bringing it back this year with help from his fellow members on Montpelier’s Complete Streets Committee.

      Brief Event Description:

      The Capital City Farmers Market moves to State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. Shop from 50 local farms and producers all season long, rain or shine. All products are grown or hand made by vendors from Central Vermont. Featuring live music through September.

      www.montpelierfarmersmarket. com

      Full State Street Move Information:

      This year is the Capital City Farmers Market’s 41st season, and there will be some big changes. Our outdoor market will be held at a new location on State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. We trialed this location last Fall for three market days, and it was a huge success. State Street will be shut down between Main St. and Elm St. on market days which makes for an easily walkable downtown area. Our regular market lot will be open for parking, which will be a net gain of parking spots compared to what we take up on the Street.

      The market itself will offer the same great vendor mix that makes the market such a fun destination for locals and visitors to the area. We feature over 65 full time and seasonal vendors from Central Vermont that grow or make 100% of the products they sell. This includes everything from seasonal produce to small batch cheese and one of a kind crafts. The majority of our vendors this season are returning vendors, but we do have some new craft and local food vendors that will be at the market part time.

      The outdoor market begins May 5th, during Montpelier’s May Day festivities. The market is open from 9:00 to 1:00 every Saturday from May through October. Our live music series begins May 19th and runs all Summer long. People can stay up to date on market vendors, music, and events by following us on Facebook, signing up for our weekly newsletter, or going to montpelierfarmersmarket.com

    Special Needs Planning is essential to protect and plan for your disabled child or grandchild. Most families know that not having the right plans in place can be detrimental to people with special needs, but they don’t know where to begin.

    This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what families need to know about special needs planning, including such essentials as protecting important government benefits like SSI and Medicaid; avoiding Medicaid “paybacks” to the state; constructing a will that doesn’t conflict with a person’s ability to access government services; constructing and funding of a Special Needs Trust; and how to provide guidance to future caregivers.

    This workshop is presented by Attorney Claudia I. Pringles,  whose practice includes Special Needs Planning and Estate Planning.  Also contributing to this workshop will be Financial Advisor Gabriel Lajeunesse, who has experience helping families plan for their future and for the lifelong needs of their disabled family member. Click here for Gabe’s bio.

    EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION:  Register 5 or more calendar days prior to a workshop to be entered into a drawing to receive a lovely  gardening bag and tool set.  You must be present at the workshop to win.

      Special Needs Planning is essential to protect and plan for your disabled child or grandchild. Most families know that not having the right plans in place can be detrimental to people with special needs, but they don’t know where to begin.

      This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what families need to know about special needs planning, including such essentials as protecting important government benefits like SSI and Medicaid; avoiding Medicaid “paybacks” to the state; constructing a will that doesn’t conflict with a person’s ability to access government services; constructing and funding of a Special Needs Trust; and how to provide guidance to future caregivers.

      This workshop is presented by Attorney Claudia I. Pringles,  whose practice includes Special Needs Planning and Estate Planning.  Also contributing to this workshop will be Financial Advisor Gabriel Lajeunesse, who has experience helping families plan for their future and for the lifelong needs of their disabled family member. Click here for Gabe’s bio.

      EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION:  Register 5 or more calendar days prior to a workshop to be entered into a drawing to receive a lovely  gardening bag and tool set.  You must be present at the workshop to win.

    Brief Event Description:

    The Capital City Farmers Market moves to State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. Shop from 50 local farms and producers all season long, rain or shine. All products are grown or hand made by vendors from Central Vermont. Featuring live music through September.

    www.montpelierfarmersmarket. com

    Full State Street Move Information:

    This year is the Capital City Farmers Market’s 41st season, and there will be some big changes. Our outdoor market will be held at a new location on State Street in downtown Montpelier this year. We trialed this location last Fall for three market days, and it was a huge success. State Street will be shut down between Main St. and Elm St. on market days which makes for an easily walkable downtown area. Our regular market lot will be open for parking, which will be a net gain of parking spots compared to what we take up on the Street.

    The market itself will offer the same great vendor mix that makes the market such a fun destination for locals and visitors to the area. We feature over 65 full time and seasonal vendors from Central Vermont that grow or make 100% of the products they sell. This includes everything from seasonal produce to small batch cheese and one of a kind crafts. The majority of our vendors this season are returning vendors, but we do have some new craft and local food vendors that will be at the market part time.

    The outdoor market begins May 5th, during Montpelier’s May Day festivities. The market is open from 9:00 to 1:00 every Saturday from May through October. Our live music series begins May 19th and runs all Summer long. People can stay up to date on market vendors, music, and events by following us on Facebook, signing up for our weekly newsletter, or going to montpelierfarmersmarket.com

    Saka Dawa is one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar, commemorating Shakyamuni Buddha’s birth, enlightenment, and passing into parinirvana. Any actions done during Saka Dawa, both auspicious and harmful, are multiplied in their power. Karmic results are multiplied by one hundred million, as cited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche in the Vinaya text Treasure of Quotations and Logic. It is a very powerful time to practice and increase one’s commitment to both practice and study. Join us for a group recitation of “The Sutra Remembering The Three Jewels” followed by a short Medicine Buddha Sadhana for the full moon.

    Special Needs Planning is essential to protect and plan for your disabled child or grandchild. Most families know that not having the right plans in place can be detrimental to people with special needs, but they don’t know where to begin.

    This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what families need to know about special needs planning, including such essentials as protecting important government benefits like SSI and Medicaid; avoiding Medicaid “paybacks” to the state; constructing a will that doesn’t conflict with a person’s ability to access government services; constructing and funding of a Special Needs Trust; and how to provide guidance to future caregivers.

    This workshop is presented by Attorney Claudia I. Pringles,  whose practice includes Special Needs Planning and Estate Planning.  Also contributing to this workshop will be Financial Advisor Gabriel Lajeunesse, who has experience helping families plan for their future and for the lifelong needs of their disabled family member. Click here for Gabe’s bio.

    EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION:  Register 5 or more calendar days prior to a workshop to be entered into a drawing to receive a lovely  gardening bag and tool set.  You must be present at the workshop to win.
