It’s veggie time in the mountains of Vermont! Vermont's ski towns are among those that have weekly farmers' markets when the snow is not flying.

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture produces a handy website that has a statewide schedule of many farmers’ markets. The list includes these markets which I selected because they are located somewhere near a Vermont ski resort or ski town that you may be visiting during the summer months:

Be sure to bring your appetite, as most of the markets include wonderful breakfast and lunch treats (and dessert!)! The garden that the Skimeister and I grow provides most of our summer veggies, but we go to the farmers' markets anyways for a snack and to pick up veggies that aren't currently ripe in our own garden.
