The Winter Buy Local Market, located in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion, will present consumers with an ideal occasion to taste, learn about, and buy Vermont agricultural products from across Vermont! The 2017 market will feature over 50 Vermont farmers and producers of local cheese, meat, fruits and vegetables, milk, maple syrup, jams, culinary oils, honey, wine, beer, spirits, wool, and handmade crafts as well as ready-to-eat prepared foods such as bacon hot dogs and ice cream cones.

Consumer Night Raffle 

For every purchase of $5 or more, enter the Consumer Night raffle to win a prize package from Ski Vermont, a family membership to Shelburne Farms, tickets to the Vermont Cheesemakers Festival, or another great prize! 

The Buy Local Market features the best agricultural products that Vermont communities have to offer and is an excellent opportunity for producers expand their market and customer base. In addition, products from the Buy Local Market will be featured in the Capital Cook-Off held concurrently in the Blue Ribbon Pavilion. Both events will be covered by local radio and television.
