BENNINGTON — Jim Martinez, president of Tri State Area Federal Credit Union, presented a $5,000 check to Bennington Community Development Director Shannon Barsotti on May 6 to help get the Bennington Community Market up and running.

Martinez said the new grocery, with a commercial kitchen and dining area, will help address food insecurity, contribute to downtown revitalization and support dozens of local farmers.

“It certainly seems like a win-win-win proposition,” he said.
