In the News - Chelsea Royal Diner

Brattleboro, Vermont

View Larger Map

In today's Brattleboro Reformer, Chris Garofolo reports the owners of the Chelsea Royal purchased a parcel of land next to the diner. It had been slated for commercial development, though plans changed and the land became available.

The article also mentions they are considering building a greenhouse on part of the land. Could this be another diner joining the sourcing food locally trend? On July 29th, WIVB posted an article about Tucker Curtin, owner of the Lake Effect Diner, in Buffalo, New York. He is teaming up with nearby farmers to incorporate their products into the food served at the diner.

Probably most notable are Tod Murphy's efforts. As owner of the Farmers Diner, in Quechee, Vermont, their philosophy is to spend three quarters of every dollar on food within seventy miles of the diner. A streamline 1946 Worcester diner is an integral part of their Quechee restaurant. They recently added another location in Middlebury, however, this location doesn't include a classic diner.

Local food is fresher food. We encourage you to support your local diner and farmers market.
