More than a Market: Food, Community, and Family in the Immigrant-owned Markets of Burlington and Winooski

Live Event
December 7, 2022: 7:00 pm

The food markets operated by immigrants and refugees in Vermont’s urban areas have long offered traditional foods, social connection, and support. More than a Market, an oral history and documentary project exhibited at the Old North End Community Center through December 23, shares stories from these markets. Charlotte Barrett from Historic New England describes the importance of these social centers in the lives of their customers and owners.

More than a Market is a project of Historic New England in partnership with the Vermont Folklife Center, AALV, Burlington Edible History, the Winooski Historical Society, and local market owners, customers, and the descendants of past market owners. Charlotte Barrett manages Historic New England’s community engagement, preservation services, and easement program work in Vermont.
