“Great way to spend a Saturday”

Spent a good part of Saturday walking around the farmer's market. Very friendly and relaxing way to spend the day. The vendors and shops along Church St. are a lot of fun to visit. It is also a dog friendly environment where many of the shop owners will place a water dish out for your dog to get a drink. Sampling food and viewing the wares of the street vendors was a lot of fun. Afterwards, we went over to Battery Park and took in the view of Lake Champlain. A totally cool and different experience for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Also, the first two hours of parking is free in any of the downtown parking garages. A nice added benefit.

This Saturday morning market in downtown Burlington exemplifies Vermonters' love of local, artisanal and ethnic fare. It is amazing to be able to get prepared street food like Tibetan momos, Peruvian chicha (blue corn drink), local cheese, ice wines, etc. in addition to locally grown (and foraged) fruits and vegetables, and organic meats. One if the best treats is ANY baked goods from The Nomadic Oven. I particularly love their ginger cake, the little plum gateaus, and all of their small fruit tarts. They can hold their own with the best bakers anywhere. They don't have a real store, so make sure you look for their stall at the Farmer's Market.

The market is also just fun to hang out at, walk dogs and kids, and try samples.

We were on our way to Church Street to see its cool restaurants and even cooler boutiques when we chanced upon the Farmers' Market. I'd guess there were maybe 70-80 booths -- beautiful, bountiful local produce, baked goods, amazing cheeses, local artists displaying their wares and, interesting multi-ethnic foods (Afghan, Nepali, Tibetan -- who would have guessed??!)

In the afternoon, there was a Caribbean band with steel drums clanging away making everyone within ear shot dance :-)

A good time!

I love love love the Burlington Farmer's Market! There's produce, plants, flowers, baked goods, honey, maple syrup, hot food, art and crafts of all kinds. Many of the vendors have free samples, so there's always some new cheese or bread to try. It's great in the summer, but fun in the fall too, with all the pumpkins, sunflowers, apple cider and of course, apple cider donuts! I recommend going around lunch time, when all the food vendors start cooking. A few of the local farms sell meat in the morning, and then cook hamburgers during lunchtime. My favorite food vendor is Samosa Man - the vegetable samosas with chutney are awesome (and HOT!) !

Visited Burlington for the first time. Very nice city. Sits beside the unbelievably beautiful lake Champlain. Really enjoyed the farmers market. One of the best I've ever been to. 75 % farmers market, 25 % social gathering. Young people lying in the grass, people strumming guitars and singing. Very eclectic mix of booths. Lots of organic produce and meat, Turkish food booth, Afghan food booth and many others. Great experience. Just one block away form the Church street pedestrian marketplace, another great attraction. Can't wait to go back some day.
