You can get your gardens set with local plants and flowers, including Pagoda Pond Garden’s daylilies and Spruce Lane Farm’s hanging baskets.

You can stock your kitchen with fresh produce, pasture-raised meats, pickles, jams, jellies, and of course, quality sweets, including caramel, honey, and maple syrup, and pick up other great local products such as beeswax candles, soap, wool roving, and the new Vermont Farm Table Cookbook, featuring Ariel’s Restaurant.

Many farm-fresh ready-to-eat items will be available, including wood-fired oven pizza topped with local seasonal produce and meats, Brookfield Bees Baklava made with their honey, sodas made from local fruit syrups, Vietnamese-style Bahn Mi pork sandwiches with pickled onions, crispy cornmeal and Vermont cheese waffles with a roasted chicken leg or veggies, whoopie pies with caramel cream filling, and ice cream with Fat Toad Farm’s caramel.

In addition to providing quality local food, the Floating Bridge Food and Farms Cooperative is committed to engaging people in farmbased, food centered educational opportunities. At the June market, dig deeper into where your honey comes from and get ideas for seasonal local meals..."
