Summer dreaming, but year ’round bounty of St. Johnsbury Farmers Mkt in Vermont

Granted, most people this time of year associate Vermont with skiing and maple sugaring. But you still gotta eat! In Vermont’s fabled Northeast Kingdom — affectionately named for fairytale-like beautySt. Johnsbury has a year-round farmers market. In the winter months, they take their bounty indoors.

I got to see the market at the end of summer and was astounded by the unusual and plentiful veggies that grow way up north. There were cucumber varieties and colors that I’d never seen or heard of, crazy-looking beans, a rainbow of heirloom tomatoes that I was shocked to see so far from Dixie, locally made liqueurs and of course, maple syrup. Maple syrup is Vermont’s pride and joy!

They also had a good selection of goat cheeses, but since I was traveling and so far from home, I didn’t indulge.
