Drop off goods for Peasant Market in Middlebury

ELEVEN ADDISON COUNTY nonprofits benefited from $15,000 in grants from last year’s Peasant Market. St. Stephen’s encouraged proposals that addressed basic needs, such as food and housing, and offered innovative ways to curb social isolation and celebrate inclusivity. Finalists were selected with an eye for the transformative impact they could have on the lives of the participants and the community.

This year’s edition of St. Stephen’s Peasant Market runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 6. It seems like all of Addison County gathers on the Middlebury Town Green right before the bell rings at 9 a.m. sharp on the first Saturday of July for the start of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church’s annual Peasant Market.
