Vermont Farmers Market (Rutland)
A variety of products are available including: Baked goods, Dairy products; Crafts, Cut flowers, Eggs, Fresh fruits, vegetables, Meats and much more. The Vermont Farmers Market is held 52 weeks per year. In early November each year, The Vermont Farmers Market moves indoors to the Vermont Farmers Food Center, 251 West St, Rutland, VT 05701. This is still known as The Vermont Farmers Market – even though it is held at the Vermont Farmers Food Center. The Farmers Market moves outdoors again on the Saturday weekend of Mother’s Day
The Vermont Farmers Food Center is a nonprofit educational organization that has 501(c)(3) status and is dedicated to furthering public understanding that regional food self-reliance, closely linking farmers with their consumers, will require the restructuring of food economy. Rutland County in Vermont is capable of producing much more of its own food. Given the escalating transportation costs, sustaining local agriculture and ensuring food self sufficiency is a high regional priority. Collaborating with the Vermont Farmers Market and Vermont Food Bank, the Vermont Farmers Food Center will serve as an economic incubator in the development and promotion of local food marketing systems. This will encourage the consumption of fresh locally grown food as one way to improve the health and well being of our residents in the greater Rutland community at large.
