Farmers' market has local flavor all winter long

BURLINGTON Whats for sale at a winter farmers market? The list of 34 winter vendors, announced today by the Burlington Farmers Market Association, helps answer that question. Everyone is curious about what exactly is for sale at a winter farmers market, said Hank Bissell, president of the Burlington Farmers' Market Association. The wide array of vendors who will be selling their products at the winter market shows that quite a variety of local agricultural products, along with prepared foods and crafts, are available, even in the winter. Farmers will be offering eggs, cheeses, meats, maple syrup, honey, wine, jams, pickles, and a variety of vegetables. This harvest season, agricultural vendors are storing crops such as carrots, beets, potatoes, squash, onions, and garlic for sale at the market, while others are freezing produce such as corn and strawberries. The market will be held in Memorial Auditorium, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. with the kick off market Nov. 22. The market will then continue on to the third Saturday of each month from December through April (Dec. 20, Jan. 17, Feb. 21, March 21, and April 18). The market is sponsored by City Market/Onion River Co-op, the Community and Economic Development Office (CEDO), and the Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont (NOFA Vermont).
