FOOD, FIDDLES AND fun await visitors to the Middlebury Farmers’ Market, which hosts live music many Saturdays at the Marble Works. Similar scenes can be found at farmers’ markets in Vergennes, Bristol, Brandon and Orwell this summer. Independent photo/John McCright

Local food, crafts, music abound at farmers’ markets By ANDREA SUOZZO parking lot from the other 50-plus stalls, is an ADDISON COUNTY — It’s summertime attempt to accommodate the growing numbers and farmers’ markets have sprung up again all of vendors vying for spots. Pam Taylor, the around the county. market coordinator, said she scheduled more All five area markets this season sport than 70 vendors to participate over the course changes in operations that each hopes will of the season, plus musical acts to entertain better serve those who want to buy locally on Saturdays. And with the success of the produced vegetables, fruits, other food market, there are more and more vendors products and crafts. who want in — so many, in In Middlebury and Orwell, the fact, that there is a waiting list farmers’ markets have increased “The market this year. the number of vendors by 20 just keeps “The market just keeps percent or more. The markets in getting stronger and stronger,” Vergennes and Bristol changed getting stronger said Taylor. “We exceeded our the days they operate. The and stronger. sales and broke records last Brandon market probably is We exceeded year.” seeing the fewest changes, but In order to keep the focus on organizers there say there is a our sales and food, the Middlebury Farmers’ small expansion in offerings. Market board of directors tries broke records MIDDLEBURY to maintain a balance of 70 last year.” For the Middlebury Farmers’ percent produce and baked — Middlebury goods sellers and 30 percent Market, which operates every Farmers’ Market’s arts and craft sellers, which Wednesday and Saturday in Pam Taylor Taylor said can be a struggle the Marble Works complex, the season brought some changes. some years. But this year, Among the changes is the Taylor said, she admitted four addition of 10 more spots to the more than 50 new agricultural vendors. already available to vendors at the Saturday “That’s what a healthy market wants,” she market. said. The addition of the new spots, which Taylor also urged the public to are located on the grass just in front of the visit the market’s website at www. American Flatbread restaurant just across the middleburyfarmersmarket.org, which was

newly redesigned version this summer. This year the website features the market schedule, including information on the six Saturday markets with special events happening this season. She also said the website would include a produce calendar informing customers what types of produce would be available at upcoming markets. Among the new vendors are two wineries, Lincoln Peak and Shelburne Vineyards. “It’s a strong, healthy market,” said Taylor. “The community supports us really well.” The summer market is open on Saturdays and Wednesdays. Both run from 9 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at the Marble Works. VERGENNES In Vergennes, the long-standing farmers’ market there has moved from Mondays to Thursdays, but it retains its home on the central city green. Hours run from 3 to 7 p.m. through Sept. 2. Vendors will continue to set up just behind the sidewalk along Main Street, city officials said. Alderwoman Chris Collette, the city council’s liaison with the Vergennes farmers’ market, told aldermen this winter that market organizers made the move from Monday because of traffic and crowds associated with the popular series of Monday evening concerts on the Vergennes green. Those concerts began just as market venders were breaking down their stalls.

BRISTOL This year the Bristol Farmer’s Market moved from Wednesdays to Saturdays. The result of surveys done by market coordinators show that people prefer to shop on a Saturday. The markets runs until Sept. 25 from 10 a.m. until 1 p.m. on the town green. In addition to food, the market offers children’s activities, demonstrations and live music. ORWELL The Orwell farmers’ market, is in its sixth year. It runs every Friday through Oct. 1. The market has generally drawn between six and 10 vendors, said Andrea Ochs, who also helps with the Orwell market and the Middlebury market. But this year has space for at least 20 spots. The market operates on the town green from 3-6 p.m. on Fridays. BRANDON Every Friday, the Brandon Farmers’ Market runs in Central Park from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. The last day of the season will be Oct. 8 followed, as in past years, by a harvest festival on Oct. 9. This year there is a new goat milk soap vendor, Back Home Again Café sells bread, and the market boasts a number of other new merchants, market manager Wendy Cijka said. “I would encourage people to come out and see what’s new,” she added.
