VERGENNES — By September the Small City Market should be a lot bigger.

On March 8, Cory and Hilary Foote, the Weybridge residents who for 12 years have owned the Vergennes store at the intersection of South Water and Main streets, received a Development Review Board permit to put up a new building to house their business — right across the street from their existing shop.
