Hugs all around

Hi Folks-

Seems like it’s been a busy week at the market. Sharon’s back full time after conquering pneumonia. Sushi sales are booming with the addition to our store of Vermont Sushi Company’s rolls. We also have two new employees, one of whom is Hannah Dwire, daughter of the store’s former owner, Matt. Hannah is a high school student and the Uncommon Market represents her first real job. She’ll be washing dishes for the most part and Sharon and I are really excited about her enthusiasm. Greg Sallerson is the other new employee, who will be working in the deli. He too seems happy to be at the store, very enthusiastic. At the end of his first training shift yesterday he asked Sharon for a brief hug, the day had gone so well.

Sue Stukey hung her paintings yesterday for Art Walk and they are beautiful. They really feel good in the store, very peaceful. Sue’s husband, Art, helped with the hanging and it was incredibly great to see him. You all should stop by this Friday, for Art Walk, when Sue will be available at the store to welcome viewers from 4 to 7p.m. It’s too bad we can’t serve wine, but maybe next time we’ll combine Art Walk with one of Sharon’s patented wine tasting events.

Let’s see, Sharon just walked in after working the deli tonight and reminded me that we brought in another new product line today that we’re excited about, Lion Mane Mushrooms, a company in Worcester that cultivates wild strains of mushrooms, very cool. Last but not least in terms of store news is the great selection of fish we have coming in tomorrow. The season’s first Soft Shell Crabs are arriving and we bought plenty of them. We’ll also be having Halibut, which has been especially good the past few weeks. We’ll aso be having our standard fare, sea scallops, swordfish, salmon, arctic char and more.

Fish arriving tomorrow:

  • Alaskan Cod, flash frozen at sea
  • East coast Halibut
  • Yellowfin tuna
  • Dayboat yellow tail sole
  • Sustainable Shetland Salmon
  • Dayboat Haddock
  • Swordfish
  • Icelandic Arctic Char
  • PEI Mussels
  • 16/20 Wild Gulf Shrimp
  • 10/20 Dry Scallops
  • Pemaquid oysters

See you at the Store!
