If you want to taste and smell what the farmers are doing around Vermont, then you have to come to the Farmers Market. From delicious grass fed Highland beef to yummy pork sausage and baked goods, everything you could dream of. Yummy cheeses, exquisite veggies, great tasting wine and last but not least great Maple syrup. If you aren't local some of the vendors do ship, but not all unfortunately. There were also a large variety of vegetarian dishes to try.

First trip to this market happened to be on the last market day of the season. There were a lot of different types of vendors, veggies, meats, cheeses, and a few handcrafts. I was a bit bummed as I was hoping to see crochet or yarn vendors but they skipped this time. That said, the food was very good, the samples were a meal for us. Prices are a little bit high but the quality is very good, I personally felt that I received the value I paid for the goods I purchased. Atmosphere is festive, people are friendly, and there are restrooms available in city hall building. Husband, 6 year old and I had a very enjoyable time, will return in the future if the opportunity to visit arises. Highly recommend!

We spent a few hours at the market this morning and it was great. Lots of food vendors and local artisans. As we were just visiting so we couldn't purchase food but it looked delicious. Wish we could take some back home with us. The local artists also have nice things for sale. It was also fun to just watch people go about there business. Great people watching.

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.
