VT Farm Show "Buy Local Market"

  • Champlain Valley Exposition 105 Pearl Street Essex Junction, VT 05452 USA (map)

Excerpted from the VT Farm Show website: Celebrate the diversity of Vermont’s agricultural products January 28th, 2015 at the 4th annual Buy Local Market at the VT Farm Show, where they can learn about, sample and purchase a broad range of products made within the state. Attendees will also have the opportunity to watch state Representatives, Senators and employees of the Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets compete in the annual Capital Cook-off—an Iron-chef style cooking challenge. 

The Buy Local Market gives 56 Vermont producers the opportunity to engage with new customers through sampling and conversation. It provides customers a unique time to learn about new products and purchase goods from around the state. At the market, one can find ice creams, cheeses, wines, beers, meats, fruits, vegetables, maple syrups, honeys, and more. A number of vendors also specialize in handmade crafts, like textiles, candles and jewelry—all the best products under one roof.

Parking and admission to the Vermont Farm Show is FREE!  But we'd like to give something back, and what better way than food!  Please bring a non-perishable item to the Farm Show as a donation. Vermont Farm Show personnel will collect all donations for shipment to the Vermont Foodbank.
