Vermont Farm Show
Essex Junction, Vermont
The Farm Show is Vermont’s largest agricultural showcase. For agricultural professionals, it is an opportunity to meet with vendors, preview products and machinery, attend trade association meetings, and network within the farm community. The show also holds wide appeal for the general public. With tractors, farm animals, and agricultural products on display, there’s something for everyone at the Farm Show. Young and old alike flock to Consumer Night to see and taste Vermont products during the Buy Local Market and the Capital Cook-off.
February 1, 2017 Consumer Night at the Vermont Farm Show
Essex Junction, Vermont
The Buy Local Market will present consumers with an ideal opportunity to "taste, learn and buy Vermont agricultural products" from across our state in one convenient place. The “Capital Cook-off,” an Iron Chef-type competition in which teams from the Vermont House of Representatives, Senate, and Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets will face off in a battle of culinary skills, will also occur again this year. Teams will have ninety minutes to create a dish using Vermont products bought at the Buy Local Market. There is no cost for parking or admission to the Farm Show, but attendees are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food donation for the Vermont Food Bank.
