Explore a Vermont Farmers Market This Season

By Dig In Vermont

The weather is getting warmer, Vermont's lilacs are blooming, and everything is turning green. These are not just the signs of late spring, but the start of the outdoor farmers market season! Visiting a farmers market is a great way to explore a region, discover new foods, and bring home a basket of ingredients to inspire your next meal.

Here are some of the things you can expect to find on your next trip to the farmers market: fresh vegetables and fruits, pickles, jams, maple syrup, cheese, crafts made by Vermont artisans (think pottery, jewelry, soaps, fiber arts), spirits, prepared foods, and more! It's a great place to find gifts, too.

So whether you're a Vermonter or a visitor, you'll enjoy exploring all the great offerings from the Green Mountain State's farmers and makers at a nearby farmers market!

Prepare before you visit...

Know the health & safety protocols

Farmers markets are currently operating under Vermont's Universal Guidance. Check out a summary below:

  • Stay home if sick.
  • Wear a mask. 
  • Ensure six-foot spaces and uncrowded places.
  • Practice good hygiene.
  • Think before you travel.
  • For the full Universal Guidance, please click here.
Please keep in mind that this Universal Guidance serves as a baseline, so individual farmers markets are free to take additional safety precautions.

Outdoor Farmers Market with Masks
 

Chat with a farmer or two

This is one of the best parts of visiting a farmers market! Don't be afraid to ask questions - vendors are happy to share the stories behind their products - their favorite ways to use the vegetable you may not be familiar with, the cider that pairs best with their cheese, which of their tomato varieties are best for making salsa...it's a great opportunity to learn and taste something new!

Find out what else is happening in the area

DigInVT’s events calendar is ramping up for the summer! Check it out and coordinate your farmers market trip with a fun food and farm related event. You can also follow one of their Trails, or make your own! It will even populate a Google Map for easy navigating. There are so many things to do.

On each DigInVT farmers market profile, scroll down and see the nearby places, because you may just find something else you won't want to miss. For example, if you're visiting the Waitsfield Farmers Market, you will also want to check out the nearby Mad River Taste Place.

Bring a cooler & a basket or reusable bags

Be ready for an adventure! No matter which farmers market you decide to visit, don't forget to bring a cooler with ice packs. Even if you don't think you'll need it, you never know when you'll find the perfect cheese! And you won't want to cut your day trip short to get all that delicious local food into your fridge.

Enjoy hands-free shopping by bringing a basket or reusable bags for your purchases.

Check to see which forms of payment are accepted

These days, most farmers markets accept debit/credit cards, Farm to Family, Crop Cash, and EBT/SNAP. But it's always best to check so there are no surprises. Almost all of the farmers market profiles linked below include this information. As always, we recommend checking the farmers market's website or social media for the most recent information prior to visiting.
