Provisionary Market in Vergennes is set to open later this summer!
We plan to open the doors of our new local foods market by the end of July and will keep you posted with updates. Many thanks to all who’ve made pledges to our Kickstarter campaign! There are still a few days left to sign up for one of our fabulous rewards, like our Vermont Cheese Club or Locavore Meal Kits (it ends July 10th), so CLICK HERE to check it out.
About the Market
Over the past year, we have worked to establish our online business, a Vermont artisan marketplace and gift concierge company. Now we are taking Provisionary to the next level by opening a local foods market in Vergennes, VT.
We see opening a retail space as a natural transition that will not only expand our business, but enhance and serve our community. Currently, Vergennes area residents must drive over 25 miles roundtrip to shop at a market that sources local Vermont products. This distance makes it all the more difficult to support local farms and food producers, even for consumers who want to buy local foods. Provisionary Market will be a small local foods market that will stock fresh produce, meat, cheese, fresh bread, eggs, dairy and pantry items, all 100% Vermont-grown and made.
We are renovating a small storefront at 7 S Maple Street in Downtown Vergennes into a quaint neighborhood local foods market that we hope will become a staple in the community, both for locals and tourists alike. Provisionary Market will offer grocery options not otherwise found nearby.

Vergennes, VT: the smallest city in the USA, built on the Otter Creek falls. The Champlain Valley is in many ways an epicenter of the New England local foods movement, and yet Vergennes, with its boom-and-bust history, has been without without a local foods market for almost a decade. Mona Sullivan, with her husband Jon and son Weston, hope to change that this summer.
