Strolling right by the Farmers’ Market

Orly Munzing, founder of Strolling of the Heifers, is quoted [Brattleboro Reformer, June 11] as saying that Strolling of the Heifers is intended to be “a tribute to the area’s agricultural heritage.”

Why, then, I wonder, does the Stroll make no connection to the Saturday Farmers’ Market — surely the iconic local manifestation of our living “agricultural heritage”?

Not a single mention of it in the Stroll supplement in the Commons not even encouragement to use the shuttle bus, which goes right by the market.

Nothing. Zero. Why?
