All the trimmings, the bread for the stuffing, local fruit wines, cranberry relishes, pickles, cheese, chocolates, fabulous pastries and oh so much more.

    Dan DeWalt will be tickling the ivories in the lunch cafe from 11-1.

    Hope to see you at the market!

    • Thanksgiving Quince!

      Vermont Quince will be there with our full line-up of products including seasonal quince-crabapple goodies that are perfect for the holiday table. We’re in the midst of processing a second ton of local quince but snuck in small batches of quince jelly & VTQ’s popular seasonal elixir, Quince Splash ™. We appreciate the patience of those who have been clamoring for these items the first few weeks of the winter farmers’ market.

      In the spirit of Thanksgiving, I would like to take a minute to thank Paul Harlow & his great farm manager, Jon Slason, for making the Harlow Farm kitchen available to Vermont Quince this year. Having regular access to a local licensed kitchen with the equipment needed for our range of products has allowed us to scale up most recipes and prepare to grow significantly in 2015. Cooking at Harlow Farm so frequently has given me the chance to see how much they do to support the local community & ensure that folks with low incomes can access great organic produce. Hats off to all the hard-working folks there!

      Back to quince — mention this post for a free small jar of quince mustard or quince-ginger-lime chutney today! Hope to see you at the market.

  • Good day to shop in town...

    …and stop by the Farmers’ Market at the River Garden 10-2.
    Hope to see you there!
