We wait all year for this moment. When the first rhubarb and arugula of the season appear in Vermont gardens … and begins arriving at the Market in the back of vans and pickup trucks. We love seeing the familiar faces of our local growers, many of whom we’ve been working with for over a decade.
And there’s nothing, no nothing, like fresh spinach and radishes that were just picked yesterday. Sure, in today’s world, you can buy nearly any produce all year long. But you can’t even begin to compare the taste and nutritional value of out-of-season produce to locally grown veggies and fruit.
This is the moment. Seize it!
