Hunger Mountain Co-op exists to create and sustain a vibrant community of healthy individuals, sustainable local food systems, and thriving cooperative commerce.
We host a variety of events, including product demos led by our demo coordinator and many of our local vendors, educational wine & cheese tastings, tabling with area nonprofits, Co-op council meetings, and more. Check out the calendar below for all the details.
Our Co-op also curates workshops as part of our mission to educate the community, offering diverse learning opportunities while holding presenters accountable for providing information that is informative and well-researched. Workshops are free unless otherwise noted and are typically held in our upstairs Community Room, with access to a freight elevator upon request. Space is limited and pre-registration is encouraged. To reserve a seat for any of our workshops, you can sign up on the bulletin board in our exit way, call us at 802-262-3202 or use the online registration form here.

This Friday, March 1, we will be having an educational wine and cheese tasting from 3-6pm in the center of our store.
This month, we will be featuring wines from Australia, which has become the sixth largest wine producing country in the world. Nearly 2,000 wineries are spread through every state, and many of them are small family-owned operations. Shiraz, a close cousin of the Syrah of France, has long been Australia’s premier red wine grape. Shiraz is normally very well balanced, with blackberry and spice notes, but can be tannic depending on the region and climate it is grown in. This Friday, we will be featuring wines from Jacob’s Creek winery located in South Australia. Varieties being sampled will be Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Shiraz.
Along with these wines, we will be sampling Grafton’s Clothbound Cheddar. The Grafton Cave Aged line of fine cheeses takes Grafton beyond its roots in Vermont cheddar cheese. The cheese is carefully matured in Grafton’s own cave aging facility using raw milk from small Vermont family farms that is thermalized and contains no artificial hormones. The rennet used is non-GMO microbial rennet, suitable for vegetarians. Clothbound Cheddar is classic milled curd cow milk cheddar wrapped in cheesecloth while it ages slowly in Grafton’s caves for a minimum of six months. Grafton Clothbound delivers a very bold cheese with both nut and mushroom notes. It is delicious any time of year on a cheese plate, in a sandwich or used in a recipe like the one below.
We hope to see you on Friday between 3-6pm for this exciting pairing.
