Amy's Closing

I just found out that Amy's Bakery and Cafe will be closing their doors in early June. This will be a huge blow to Main Street and one less reason to visit downtown. Amy's has been kind of a linchpin for Main Street. How many of us have made plans to " meet at Amy's"?  I wonder how much longer the rest of the long time businesses will be able to survive in an environment that is not kind to small businesses. I wonder if we will even be able to recognize Main Street in 5 or 6 years. This is a shame and this wonderful little cafe will be greatly missed.

Dosa Kitchen: South Indian Soul Food Re-opens For The Season May 1

Dosa Kitchen's first day of the season is this Friday, May 1. We'll open at noon and be there through the evening for Gallery Walk.

Dosa Kitchen offers healthy, delicious South Indian food with a focus on local and organic. All our food is gluten free. Our specialty is the dosa, a fermented rice and lentil crepe eaten by millions of Indians every day.

This year we've added dosa wraps with a variety of fillings from chicken curry to falafel to the menu. Wraps are a great gluten-free grab and go lunch option for folks who work downtown.

The Co-op: Two Realities

    There is a very lengthy and continuing thread about what constitutes a real co-op.  There is the modern Big Store (food) co-op and the Little Buying Club.  There would have to be a lot in between but we'll leave it at that for now.

    The debate seems mostly to center around prices.  Big Store has high prices.  Little Buying Club would have cheaper prices (how much cheaper unknown).  Actually, Little Buying Club prices aren't too much cheaper because they can't get the volume discounts.  In fact the food itself is more expensive for that reason.  It can be sold cheaper because it has so much less overhead.  A private garage to receive and break down orders, all volunteer labor etc.  It can be cheaper still if it limits itself to bulk buying, avoids refrigerated and frozen foods and limits the selection to a couple hundred basic items and ordering just once a month.

Stroll's 2015 Locavore Index: Vermont Leads The Way Again

Which states are most committed to locally-sourced food? According to the 2015 Locavore Index, the top four locavore states (in order) are Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire and Oregon.

These four states also topped the 2014 Index, which is compiled annually by Strolling of the Heifers, a Vermont-based local food advocacy group.

"The purpose of the Index is to stimulate efforts across the country to use more local food in homes, restaurants, schools and institutions,"said Orly Munzing, founder and executive director of Strolling of the Heifers.
