Friendly vendors, fine crafts, fresh fruits and veggies: These farmer’s markets have it all
Visitors who travel to Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom say it’s a great way to discover the simpler pleasures of life. And one of those pleasures: visiting farmer’s markets. Throughout the region, small and not-so-small markets feature the freshest produce and the friendliest vendors. But each market has its individual flavor. In Hardwick, there’s live music and Himalayan Nepali food; in Craftsbury, you can buy baskets, baked goods and blueberries; in Lyon, there are homemade jams, fossil jewelry, dog treats and distillery products. Most markets are open May or June through at least mid-October. And don’t forget the farm stands that dot the region’s roads, selling everything from berries and flowers to maple syrup and one-of-a-kind crafts.
