Vermont’s oldest cooperative lies at the center of Adamant village, surrounded by two ponds and state forest. Founded in 1935, the shop supplies the community with the usual groceries, but also a number of local products like Ann’s sweet rolls, Eva’s fudge brownies, and eggs from nearby farms. Adamant Co-op also serves as a social center with workshops and events throughout the year. The biggest, the Black Fly Festival held each May, celebrates the end of winter (and onset of the pests) with music, games, a fashion show, pie contest, and parade.
