• Rural Vermont announces ‘black market’ event
     | November 12,2013

    MONTPELIER — The nonprofit group Rural Vermont will present “Black Market Bounty,” an event featuring a potluck meal and storytelling, on Nov. 24.

    The evening will feature true stories about making, raising, accessing, selling and buying “the best food you can’t buy,” according to a news release.

    The state’s black market includes illegal cheese, contraband meat and underground farm foods, according to the release. Rural Vermont is advocating legalizing what it calls “these treasured, traditional foods.”

    All are welcome to the free event. Donations will be appreciated, however, with proceeds benefiting Rural Vermont, which advocates for family farmers and citizens committed to supporting and cultivating a vital and healthy rural economy and community.

    Organizers say the storyteller lineup includes a diversity of personalities and styles, and that the stories will shed light on different aspects of Vermont’s thriving fresh food black market. Some stories will be lighthearted and fun. Others will be serious.

    The event will take place at the Unitarian Church in Montpelier from 6 to 8:30 p.m.

    People attending are asked to bring a dish to share and a place setting. For more information, visit www.ruralvermont.org.
