Farmers’ markets are a fun, affordable and engaging way to buy local and support our community members. Markets typically take place May-October in more than a quarter of the towns and villages that make up Vermont, and feature seasonal produce, crafts, and artisan goods and products.

Vermont is dedicated to keeping agricultural dollars in state while providing its citizens with the most nutritious and wholesome food available. Access to local, sustainably produced food has been growing since the Farm to Plate strategic plan was passed in 2009 and will continue to grow with community support.

A trip to the farmers’ market will fill your fridge with local goodies and allow you to meet the people producing your food. Take note of what will be in season during your next farmers’ market.
