more than just Great Food, it’s a community experience
A community event
“I love the community aspects of it—seeing people I know, chatting, and having relationships with the vendors.”
Events & Community Tent
“Love the story time, it has been such a wonderful thing that my kids adore. Also, face painting was a hit!”
“Friendly vendors always make the experience great”
Belmont center merchants
Many of the merchants in the Center partner with us. Some restaurants buy ingredients from our vendors, while others offer tastings or display their wares at the market.
And the food!
“Good bread, excellent heirloom tomatoes, and magical lettuce that never goes bad.
My latest discovery is rainbow chard. I was intimidated by chard (it looks like something only very adventurous vegans would eat) - but I asked one of the women at the stand what to do with it. She instructed me to saute it like spinach with garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper. I added in a vidalia onion and some tilapia - and I have never been happier!”
“I am very grateful for your matching funds. It helps me tremendously.”
