The Dish: Women in the Food Industry 2.0

The Dish: Women in the Food Industry 2.0

City Market and the Intervale Center have teamed up to create an exploratory series called The Dish. With support from ArtsRiot, we host quarterly panel discussions that dive into hot food issues with the help of local experts.

The Dish: Women in the Food Industry 2.0
Wednesday, November 7, 2018
5:30pm – 7:00pm
ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St

Doors open at 5:00pm. Cash bar.

After starting the conversation in November of 2017, we’re back to continue exploring the issue of women in the food industry with an incredible lineup of panelists. Join us for an evening of conversation at ArtsRiot as part of our Dish series. 

Women play a crucial role in the food and beverage industry as farmers, chefs, producers, and entrepreneurs. While progress has been made in recognition of that role and the economic and social benefits of gender diversity in the workplace, women still face barriers to entry in many fields within the food system. Join us for a conversation moderated by longtime Vermont food journalist, Melissa Pasanen as we explore the challenges and successes experienced by women in the industry here in our state. We will hear from these leaders in their fields about the trends they see in the industry’s approach to female leadership, how Vermont compares to other areas in the country in terms of gender equity, and how they found “a place at the table” in these typically male-dominated fields.

Meet the Panel:

Brought to you by City Market, and the Intervale Center with special thanks to ArtsRiot.

FREE! $5 suggested donation to benefit the Intervale Center.

Have a Heart, Pull a Weed

We’re looking for volunteers to help pull invasive species and improve the health of the land at the Intervale Center. Invasive species take resources from native plants which negatively impacts the environment. We will start the day learning a little bit about invasives and their impact on the environment. Then we will split up into groups and remove invasive species, such as common buckthorn and multiflora rose, and re-plant areas with native trees and shrubs. All volunteers are invited to a celebratory lunch from 1 - 2 PM in the Intervale Center Community Barn, complete with food from Love Local catering, drinks from Sap! Beverages, hands-on activities like make-your-own goutweed pesto, and more. This event is generously sponsored by One Tree Planted!

The Dish: What the Hemp!

The Dish: What the Hemp!

The Dish: What the Hemp?

Thursday April 26th, 2018
5:30pm – 7:00pm
ArtsRiot, 400 Pine St
Doors open at 5:00pm. Cash bar.


Industrial hemp is planted on over 500 acres of Vermont’s working lands. While there has been much discussion of the oil extracted from the plant (CBD), it’s worth noting the many uses of this versatile crop. From animal feed to fuel, fabric to dietary supplements, industrial hemp provides opportunities for Vermont farmers to diversify their operations. With the increasing interest and popularity of CBD products, growers now have a new market for their crop. Here in Vermont we’ve seen a growth in CBD-infused products from coffee and juice to oils and supplements. We’ve even seen a number of restaurants experiment with cooking with CBD. Join us during Vermont Restaurant Week as we explore the hemp crop and hear from farmers, chefs, and agronomists about the ways in which the evolving understanding of hemp and CBD is impacting our food system.

Stay tuned for more information on our moderator and panelists!

Brought to you by City Market, and the Intervale Center with special thanks to ArtsRiot.
