The best way to enjoy produce is sun-ripened and plucked right from the vine. Vermont's focus on fresh food, locally produced, means there's no shortage of places to pick; all summer and fall you can take your time finding the perfect fruits and veggies at pick-your-own farm stands. In addition to cool-weather crops like kale and winter squash, October is the perfect time to pick your own pumpkins and apples. Make a family day of it! Many pick-your-own pumpkin and apple farms feature hot cider, donuts or horse-drawn wagon rides.
FIND AN ORCHARD
Visiting a local farm stand or pick your own is a simple, beautiful way to buy your produce. Find orchards, meet producers and get to know Vermont's local food scene.
Find a Farmers Market
Farmers Markets are hubs for those who enjoy the bounty of the land. Support local farmers while enjoying produce, meat and community spirit that's as fresh as it gets.
