New pop-up summer food market launches at NECC

MILLERTON — The Fair Pricing Pilot Program is working with North East Community Center (NECC) to host Summer Market Pop-Up events selling local vegetables and protein on a “sliding scale.”

On Monday, July 1, the market opened at the NECC location, 51 South Center Street, Millerton, and will be open every Monday in July and August. The program will be selling local vegetables, proteins, and more on a “sliding scale” to the entire community.

Customers pay 100% if they feel they comfortably can meet all their basic needs; 75% if they mostly meet them; 50% if it’s sometimes and 25% if it’s difficult to meet basic needs.

Bags of produce offered on July 1 were heavy with scallions, cauliflower, radishes, chard — all fresh and everything is local.

The pop-up will be open Mondays from 3 to 6 p.m. and will feature Chaseholm Farm, Off the Shelf Farm, Rock Steady Farm, Overlook Farm, Genessee Valley Farm, Q Farms and Hudson Valley Fresh.

The 17th Annual Traditional New England Clambake, sponsored by NBT Bank and benefiting the Jane Lloyd Fund, is set for Saturday, July 27, transforming the Salisbury Winter Sports Association’s Satre Hill into a cornucopia of mouthwatering food, live music, and community spirit.

The Jane Lloyd Fund, now in its 19th year, is administered by the Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation and helps families battling cancer with day-to-day living expenses. Tanya Tedder, who serves on the fund’s small advisory board, was instrumental in the forming of the organization. After Jane Lloyd passed away in 2005 after an eight-year battle with cancer, the family asked Tedder to help start the foundation. “I was struggling myself with some loss,” said Tedder. “You know, you get in that spot, and you don’t know what to do with yourself. Someone once said to me, ‘Grief is just love with no place to go.’ I was absolutely thrilled to be asked and thrilled to jump into a mission that was so meaningful for the community.”
