Waitsfield Farmers Market: August 23rd (special event!)

Waitsfield is home to one of the best farmers markets around. It’s a great way to spend a day checking out all the amazing local foods and products our community has to offer.

The market runs on Saturdays from 9am-1pm and the remaining dates in 2014 that Lawson’s Finest will be there are Aug. 23, Sept. 20, and Oct. 11.
On August 23rd, we will be participating in a fundraiser for the Mad River Valley Community Fund (MRVCF) to commemorate the fund’s 25th Anniversary of helping those in need in the Valley. We will be using our usual ticketed system for the Farmer’s Market, however, we are asking for donations at the time of handing out tickets. For the first 240 people that make a donation of $10 or more to the MRVCF, they will receive the following: free coffee and doughnuts while you wait for the ticket hand-out, a Lawson’s Finest 16oz pint glass, LFL Double Sunshine sticker, and more!

A few important details! The ticket hand-out location on August 23rd will be at the Village Grocery (VG) at 4348 Main St, Waitsfield, VT 05673 (not the Mad Taco). The VG will be holding a special event all morning long with coffee samples from Capitol Grounds (starting at the crack of dawn!), a beer tasting, and much more. The VG will also be donating 5% of all the day’s proceeds to the MRVCF along with a number of other local businesses!
We plan to hand out tickets at several times to serve the early-risers along with the usual time. Our plan is to hand out tickets at the Village Grocery at 6:30am, 7:30am, and 8:15am. The tickets provide you a place in line to purchase beer at the Farmers Market along with a schedule of approximate times. Please consider a donation of $10 or more to the MRVCF and be rewarded with a bunch of goodies!

The beer list for the August 23rd market is as follows:

Super Session #3 (Sorachi Ace) (4.2%) – $7/22oz limit of 2/pp
Double Sunshine IPA (8%) – $9/22oz limit of 4/pp
Maple Tripple Ale (12%) – $25/500ml limit of 4/pp
Knockout Blonde Ale (5%) – $7/22oz limit of 2/pp

We may have one more beer in store for this market…if it is bottled in time, it will be posted prior to the market.

How does it work? Pick up your beer ticket/order form at one of the hand-out times. It will have a number on it that corresponds to a time range to visit us at the market to purchase your beer. We will have enough Double Sunshine IPA for all of the numbered tickets. Other beers may sell-out before your number is called. We have a lighted LED sign at our booth that shows the designated number we are currently serving. PLEASE be considerate of the other vendors and patrons at the market. If you have a long wait ahead, we request that do not stand around our booth or occupy the picnic tables for extended periods of times. Please do not block access to the other vendors booths, the number system provides a general time for you to return. ENJOY Waitsfield, VT, support the local businesses and the other incredible vendors at the market offering crafts, cheeses, maple syrup, prepared foods, farm fresh (and organic) vegetables, locally and humanely raised meats, and so much more. Last but not least, be sure to hit up the Mad Taco for some good eats and brew before you leave town! Cheers!
