Re: “Dinner Via Mr. Delivery in Burlington

I hope additional restaurants sign up. I am not a pizza girl.

Re: “Dinner Via Mr. Delivery in Burlington

One of the best things about Mr. Delivery is that the Burlington franchise is locally owned by a UVM (14) grad! Hes also super handsome :) Happy Valentines Day Asher!

Re: “Why a State Obsessed With 'Local' Doesn't Eat Vermont Fish

The State is so screwed up it stinks. Human activity pollutes the lake far more than agricultural run off. The only reason they are hitting farmers is because they don't have the money to fight them. My family has eaten fish from the lake for over 50 years. They would do better at cleaning it up if Burlington would stop dumping raw sewage in it.

Re: “If You're Feeling Blue, There's an Herb for That

Nice little article. For more information on the shop and the herbalist, check out this article from Edible Green Mountains from August 2018: http://ediblegreenmountains.ediblecommunit…

Re: “Longtime Organic Ag Leader Enid Wonnacott Steps Down

I wish you well and thank you for your years of hard work in Vermont. We need more strong, intelligent women in companies and organizations such as NOFA-VT. My granddaughter is a UVM-ag.graduate and an organic meat, pork and poultry farmer, as well as veggies. She is the Pres. the agricultural association for Addison Co. And was Pres. Of VT FFA when in hs. Maybe shell one day cross paths with Mrs.Wonnacott, if not already. Good job!

Re: “With a New Policy, Healthy Living Reads the Fine Print for You

Don't worry; still plenty of GMOs to be had at healthy living. And regarding their nickname, ever heard of Shitty Markup? Yes, not as catchy.

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

Perhaps cwinklem is correct and some employees are dramatically underpaid . My suggestion is get rid of a good quarter of the staff and pay the remainder much more. Every time I visit I see so many useless , lazy disinterested workers . There are also many helpful hard workers . Is part of the diversity goal to hire so many useless people ? Perhaps Tashiro should focus on competency when hiring instead of social engineering .

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

Is this where we gripe about City Market? I love the space the new store offers and it feels much less smarmy than the downtown location. I could do without the commentary that comes with rally for change. I support a good amount of charities with both money and time. I can't support them all so I often decline to round up. I'd prefer if this didn't generate odd responses like Thanks anyway, Maybe next time, That's OK, or any of the other various remarks that have an unintended judgey tone. Conversely, I don't need high praise those times I do consent to having my bill rounded up.

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

I feel very grateful for both city markets - but as the article highlights the main goal was to relieve parking congestion - so Just after it opens 3 businesses in the back open up, taking all the parking spaces - i am mainly a biker to CM but when i do drive, i feel the parking is now worse, not better than 2 years ago.

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

I am incredibly grateful for City Market, a remarkable asset to Burlington that contributes to a high quality of life in our city. It is the antithesis of South Burlingtons widely despised Healthy Living, a beacon of corporate greed and entitlement. Thanks to all City Market cheerful employees and its ethos of civic-minded community enhancement.

Re: “One Year After Building Second Store, City Market Exceeds Goals

Mack said she measures the co-op's success in a number of ways. These include financial strength and sustainability, impact on the community, expanding access to wholesome foods, supporting local food producers, and growing membership.

Just so folks know:

1) Starting wage is $11.20/h in one of the most expensive cities in the country. Work for a few years and you may make it up to a whopping $13/h. How much money from Rally for Change ends up going to the workers when they have to access these services?
2) Coop members have no ability to bring up issues for
votes or organize to change policy.
3) The CEO maintains all power regarding operations.
4) It took workers and their union years and a petition, a refusal to be heard by the CEO and the board, before city market fired a manager who regularly harassed employees. Is that being pro-union?
5) City Market management has refused to write up a boycott policy so that they dont have to deal with problems when local biz owners abuse workers and tenants, like Samosaman or Boves.

Weird how none of those issues seems to matter regarding impact on the community or sustainability?

Re: “New Slices in Burlington: Sampling Pizza 44 and Pizzeria Ida

nice write-up 7days, and after visiting each place 3 times, we agree! these 2 places couldn't be further apart.

pizza 44 brings a moderately thick americanized pizza pie with a nice, simple, sweet red sauce, and also this deeper dish pie that's like a cross between a Chicago and a Detroit style pie great place if you want that really rich comfort food pizza.

pizzeria idas is a creation onto itself, serving this paper thin, true napoletana italian pizza imagined using, like, this conscious blend of local vermont farmers and these unheard of authentic italian ingredients that can be traced-back to italian family farmers, just like other vermont restaurants do with local vermont farmers. steller italian food served here, and a contender for 2019 daysies best pizza and new restaurant.

Re: “New Slices in Burlington: Sampling Pizza 44 and Pizzeria Ida

Did you ask them what their hours are at ida? (If they keep regular hours.) With no info online that would be a useful to know.

Re: “Longtime Organic Ag Leader Enid Wonnacott Steps Down

"Actually, it's not much more than UVMMC pays its CEO."

And the point of this snarky and proggy comment is? How does it relate to a story about Ms. Wannacott and NOFA-VT? Why is it necessary to include in a response to someone's comment that $2.8 is "a pretty good amount of money"?

Actually, it's not much more than UVMMC pays its CEO.

If you're interested, check the 990. Most of the money comes from membership fees and dues.

Re: “With a New Policy, Healthy Living Reads the Fine Print for You

Hi, Julie Green:

Seven Days does not allow advertising dollars to influence editorial decisions about what stories we cover, or how we report them. Further, over the years, we've written many, many stories about City Market/Onion River Co-Op and other markets too.

Thanks for reading!
