Grow Local, Buy Local - AN IDEOLOGY VERMONT LIVES BY

It’s no secret: Vermont is known for its farms. “Grow local, buy local” is an ideology we live by.

We believe it’s important to know where your food comes from. Many farm stands and farmers markets are a thriving example of the movement to support fresh local foods and products. “Farm to plate” is not just a nice idea here, but a way of life.

Stopping by a farm stand or farmers market to pick out groceries that were harvested that day brings you back to a simpler time. It’s a welcome change from the big box stores we are so accustomed to. Many of these markets take place outside, from spring to fall. This gives you plenty of opportunities to stop in and meet the farmer who grew your food.
