This weekend I stopped at the Montpelier Farmer's Market on my way up to Jordy's house. It's a small but plentiful market, taking over a parking lot in downtown Montpelier. Vendors from all over Vermont set up tents showing off delicious produce and artisan goods. A folk band played at the center as everyone meandered through, picking up whatever they needed for the upcoming week.
There are a few picnic tables surrounding the music for those who have come simply for lunch. Some of the food trucks set up tents as well, my personal favorite being Woodbelly Pizza -- serving up hot, delicious pizza covered in organic veggies and cheeses.
I found some strange but interesting things such as bear fat salve and a tea vendor with a "Maple Matcha Milkshake". Everyone was in good spirits -- most likely a combination of the beautiful weather and array of local made goods.
Montpelier is small but full of culture and character. The capitol of Vermont consists of around five blocks of storefronts but is a great way to spend the day. The farmer's market was a highlight of my weekend. I recommend it to anyone traveling through or simply nearby looking for a way to spend a Saturday morning.
