March 1, 2023 | Montpelier, VT - The Weights & Measures Section of the Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets will be hosting multiple scale inspection events around the state during April for anyone who uses scale(s) at farmers’ markets or farm stands to sell produce or other commodities. This testing is required by law. This will allow the Agency to perform these inspections in a more efficient manner in a way that creates less disruption to you and the farmers’ markets.
Please plan to attend one of the inspection events listed below. Bring your legal for trade scale, and any accessories that you use with it for weighing items for sale.
The following is a list of dates and locations for the testing. Most sites will be at Agency of Transportation (AOT) garages. You can come anytime during our open hours, and no advance appointment is necessary. The test should take 5 to 10 minutes per scale.
Look for the yellow “Scale Check Here” signs.
Full Day Locations: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
