Scale Testing - Weights & Measures
Agency of Agriculture/Weights & Measures Lab
163 Admin Drive, Randolph Center (VTC Campus)
The Consumer Protection 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 to sell produce or other commodities. This testing is required by law, and the Agency would like to encourage producers to take advantage of these testing dates as they have replaced the Agency’s annual visits to Vermont farmers’ markets for the same reason. 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.
Bring your legal for trade scale, and any accessories that you use with it for weighing items for sale.Hours for each location will be 9:00am – 3:00pm. You can come anytime during our open hours, and no advance appointment is necessary. The test should take around 10 minutes per scale.
