Local Agricultural Community Exchange
LACE is a non-profit 501c3 dedicated to bringing the community back in touch with local foods and the land by supporting family farms. By strengthening the relationship between people and their local foods, LACE aims to boost local economy, conserve local farm land, increase the community's health and create unity within the community.
LACE fulfills its mission by inviting farmers and community members alike to a central location in downtown Barre, Vermont. Here they can: share, trade and sell locally prepared foods; learn from one another in workshops, discussion groups, lectures and the like; participate in hands-on cooking and preparation of local foods in LACE's community kitchen; become Vendors in the LACE Gallery of all Vermont-made crafts and goods; and, best of all, get to know one another.
