Burlington Farmers Market

Spring has sprung in Burlington! It's hard to believe with the freezing rain I had on my drive into work this morning but it's finally spring time in Vermont!

This weekend we had one for the first beautiful sunny days of the year and I spent it at one of my favorite places - the Burlington Farmers Market at City Hall Park.

In the summer months the farmers market is right down the street from the house and it is the best way to start the weekend. I like to go early before the crowds swarm the market at lunch. Two of the colleges in town (Champlain and St. Mike's) had graduation on Saturday so the market was even more packed than usual for a sunny spring day. I sampled a bunch of new items including a coco nib infused coffee from Northern Bayou Cold Brew (I don't even drink coffee and I thought it was great!) They also do nitrogen cold brew and a hop infused coffee - so Vermont. I also took home a jar of locally made kimchi from Sobremes. So excited to try it on a veggie burger!

I got my plant fix at Half Pint Farm (hopefully my plants don't freeze today). This year I ended up with one cherry tomato plant, one jalapeno pepper, shallots, swiss chard, mint, basil, chives, and dill. I also planted beans and cilantro from seed so we'll see how those do!

For lunch I couldn't help but go for my favorite Green Mountain PotStickers! I can never get enough of these things so yummy.
