Vermont farmers' markets in and around ski towns

Vermont farmers' markets

Summertime, and the living is easy... Vermont is looking green and lush these days. Fields are starting to produce summer treats and the farmers are taking them to market. Many towns around Vermont ski areas have weekly farmers' markets, and they typically include more than produce — such as prepared foods, cheeses, wines, arts and crafts.

The Vermont Agency of Agriculture produces a <link http: nofavt.org find-organic-food farmers-market-directory external link in new>website that has a statewide schedule of many farmers’ markets. The list includes most of these markets, below, 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.Vermont farmers' market
