Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market Pivots to Curbside Service Only

As of Saturday, November 28, the Brattleboro Winter Farmers’ Market is pivoting to CURBSIDE PICK UP SERVICE ONLY. There will not be an in-person walk up and shop market at least through the holidays. With COVID19 cases rising rapidly in Vermont and all around us, the market Steering Committee has decided that continued in-person indoor operations, while significantly modified for safety, poses too great a risk to the safety of all in our market community – our customers, market vendors, staff and volunteers. We chose not to wait until we were forced to react to the report of a positive COVID case within the market community.

But the good news is, that you will still be able to safely and conveniently shop from all of our regular market vendors in one place from the comfort of your home. Just as in the physical market, our new online ordering system puts all that our producers have to offer in one place for you to browse and choose. You will even find some things you’ve been missing at the weekly market like beautiful pottery, or cheese and milk from Livewater Farm! You will just need to plan ahead, and do your shopping between Tuesday morning at 8 AM toThursday evening at 8 PM when our order window closes. This gives our producers the time they need to pick, pack, bake or make all that you have ordered so that it is all ready for you to drive through and pick it up safely on Saturday.

SNAP customers can also pre-order through this system. Your EBT card will be processed at the time of pick up. Crop Cash and Food Boost coupons will be credited to your order to help stretch your food dollars. Right now that means $10 becomes $40 with Crop Cash doubled through December, and our own Food Boost as well!

Find our more details at our website – Or go directly to our shop at and start planning your order for Nov. 28!.

We hope you’ll join us on this new journey and make the purchases you would have made in person in this new way. Maybe you’ll purchase even more local foods for your table, because, heck, eating out is less and less of an option now anyway! You will still get the fresh local foods and goods you want, and help to support all the small independent businesses that are part of our market at a time when they need you the most!
