The Bellows Falls Farmer's Market

Oh happy days are here again! The third weekend of May is the first day of the Farmer's Market in Bellows Falls, Vermont! Every Friday from May through October, the Farmer's Market is open from 4 PM - 7 PM, rain or shine, at the Waypoint Center. There are several vendors who sell maple syrup and other maple products, lots of the freshest seasonal veggies, milk, cheese, preserves, local meat and eggs, flowers, annuals and perennials, soaps, clothing, some jewelry and other arts and crafts.

There is often a musical guest providing entertainment and there's lots of room to dance!

If you didn't plan a dinner there is lots to eat - often there is dim sum, or Vietnamese cuisine, samosas, and of course barbeque grilled veggies and meat (if you're not a labbit).


Jon Cohen from Deep Meadow Farm (where the labbits have a CSA share) is there every week with his veggies and meat. Today Pipkin picked up some kale for dinner and checked out the herbs. Maybe he'll plant some this year?

Pipkin picks this nice bunch of kale.


Should he plant cilantro? Sure smells good...


After he picked out his veggies for tonight's dinner, he hopped on over to a booth he'd never seen at the Farmer's Market, the artist Liz Hawkes deNiord, who paints, does pottery and teaches. She brought a variety of her ceramics:

Big plates! Pipkin loves this tie-dye looking plate.



Bowls of varying sizes. (Pipkin may have snuck som ginger for himself.)



Vases!
If you are in Bellows Falls on a Friday, you must visit the Farmer's Market. Pipkin will be back next week, maybe to try out some of the yummy looking brownies he saw, or for a refreshing glass of strawberry lemonade on a hot day. Please say hi to Pipkin (or his labbit friends) when you see him!
