Shelburne is your Saturday destination this month and all summer long, to gather provisions needed for weekly seasonal meals. Fill your basket with fresh picks at the Shelburne Farmers Market, held every Saturday from 9am- 1pm on the village green.
A recent visit to the weekly market was a feast for the senses. Baskets overflowed with lush salad greens, rhubarb, striking radishes and herbs. We found strawberry rhubarb crepes, rich locally-made ice cream, and cantaloupe jam! Vendors at the market are more than happy to share tips and recipes for cooking with an unfamiliar veggie or condiment. Bring your own reusable shopping baskets and bags, and enjoy a lively spot for fresh discoveries and conversation with old friends.
To round out your farmers market provisions, head up the road to the Vermont Artisan Village for beer, spirits, and shortbread treats. Fiddlehead Brewing, Wild Hart Distillery and Douglas Sweets are open on Saturdays for your tasting and shopping pleasure. Please call ahead for specific hours.
And there you have your weekend meals, wrapped up fresh from Shelburne, Vermont!
