Community Minded Cheese Lovers, Step Forward
For the month of July, Granite City Grocery is working hard to grow membership, and food vendors are pitching in to help. Each month a new vendor will be featured as an incentive for new membership growth. These vendors are offering packages of their signature products as incentives for the first three new members who join Granite City Grocery, paid in full. Vermont Creamery is featured this month and they have graciously offered a cheese lover’s basket to our new members. These baskets are packed with a variety of fresh, aged goats’ and cows’ milk cheeses and cultured butters. This basket will reflect the bounty of this season. Though its contents may vary, you can be certain you’ll be receiving an assortment of the finest quality butters and cheeses that Vermont Creamery has to offer.
Vermont Creamery has been making artisanal hand-crafted cheeses for over a quarter century. Owners Allison Hooper and Bob Reese have continued the tradition of fresh chèvre, that was the start of the Creamery, as well as crafting new award-winning cheeses, such as Bonne Bouche and Cremont. Setting the pace for artisan craftsmanship, Vermont Creamery has been a pioneer in bringing American artisan cheeses to restaurants and homes.
Granite City Grocery is a start-up food co-op in development to serve the people who live, work and/or commute thru Barre with convenient, locally-sourced food for both organic and conventional food shoppers. The model that Granite City Grocery is using is the same as Hanover and Keene co-ops. With this model, these co-ops have proven success, where their shoppers can find a friendly, community-owned, grocery store.
