Hi-Rise Bread Company

Rene Becker opened Hi-Rise in 1996 with a crew of six, big ideas, and a simple goal: to make staple homey foods better than home-made. He started with bread — using organic wheat, rye, and corn from independent mills — and soon moved to pastries, incorporating extra-rich European-style butter and local fruits for pies and tarts. In store, they offer soups and sandwiches, dinners sold fresh and frozen, and now fresh produce. At the market find their breads, granola, crackers, loaf cakes, pastries, and preserves to bring home!

Friends of Acton Community Dog Park

August 21

In 2021, Acton's Select Board, several Town committees, and Annual Town Meeting attendees affirmed and endorsed the establishment of a dog park in Acton, designating land at 348 Main Street for the park and allocating community funds to qualify us for grants that will cover the bulk of the costs. The Friends of Acton Community Dog park is raising funds to help cover design costs and amenities not covered by the grants.

ARTISANS

BurlDoctor

July 23, August 7, August 21

My turning philosophy is to create high-quality, hand-made wooden bowls to demonstrate the beauty of the internal wood grain patterns of native hardwoods. My bowls are low-profile to allow inspection of the wood grain patterns. They are utilitarian and useful in the Kitchen and for decorations. All are unique. All are finished in food-safe oil finish.
