What a great way to spend Saturday morning. Go for breakfast or lunch. You can eat your way right through the market. Not only is there so much available to purchase, but there is so much available to eat right there. There are dinky's donuts, Stony Pond Farm organic cheeseburgers, sausages, more pastries than you can imagine, homemade whoopee pies, and the samosa man is there too. My kids look forward to having Rookie's rootbeer floats.

There are so many kids running around having a great time. There is always someone playing music or juggling. I always think this is a good place to start the day before doing something else downtown.

I love the Farmer's Market. I always run into people I know. I can buy a snack or special food item, or gifts by craftspeople. There is always something interesting to see or taste. And it has a great community vibe to it.

If you are seeking the freshest and most exotic of the area's hipsters, be sure to check out (and be checked out) at the Burlington Farmer's Market. Can't tell you about the quality or variety of the produce and ready to eat food sold there, as I have always been too busy switching back and forth between checking my own reflection in the sunglasses of passersby to make sure my hair looks o.k. and checking out the latest trends sported by the Burlingerati.

If you only want fresh produce, there are other smaller farmer's markets around the city and in neighboring towns that will get you in and out quicker (and probably cheaper), but if you want to look cool doing it, the Burlington market is the place to be.

We love going here on a Saturday morning. So much to look at and the food is amazing. The kids look forward to having their faces painted. Lots of fun to be had.

This is a great way to spend some time outdoors and getting a taste of the wonderful local offerings available. We love to take our one year old; she loves to wave at people and see the many dogs out and about. We look around at crafts, and we buy lunch and a treat from the local food vendors. We usually end up enjoying Church Street afterwards. Our only problem is it can be very crowded at times, which means getting around with a stroller is a pain. If you have a baby carrier, I would suggest you use it. ...more

Why are so many of Vermont's local farmers charging so much when they don't even offer Organic? I love the atmosphere and go regularly with my family, but feel it's ironic. I should pay 3 times the regular price if the product isn't any better and actually has no delivery expenses.

Last winter a farm stand that I will leave unnamed from Jericho explained why they charge more for their product at the farmers market than I can buy from their farm at my Hannaford's store. Let me just annouce the explaination is ridiculous: Hannaford's buys in larger quantities so they can sell it cheaper than buying it directly from the farm at the farmer's market.

I guess I am done buying local unless my neighbors start to realize that I want better, not just the same. Oh yeah and I am willing to pay 3 times more if it's better.

The best farmers market around. We love the variety. My son loves to test the food, and the vendors are very inviting.

Each year, my family travels from Atlanta to VT for our idyllic vacation at The Tyler Place (about one hour north of BTV). We usually fly into BTV a day early and seek a bit of fun in Burlington. When Miss Magpie suggested I take my family to the BFMarket, I thought, "hmmm..okay...sounds quaint....that will occupy us for 15-20 minutes." Boy, was I wrong! The Burlington Farmer's Market is what I like to call "a little slice of heaven." The homemade donuts @ Dinky Donuts are sublime (I prefer the old-fashioned with cinnamon, but I think next time I will try the maple with bacon!). After tasting several of the locally produced cheeses (from plain to complex), I know my local grocery purchased bleu and goat cheese will not do. But my favorite BFM yum yum is the least expected VT specialty - The Samosa Man! After our first taste of The Samosa Man's delectable stuffed pastries in 2010, we literally counted the days (all 364 of them) until our taste buds would once again salivate! And they did.
Beyond food we all enjoyed exploring the etsy-type artisans who displayed their creativity in the forms of jewelry, embellished t-shirts, adorable knit Amigurumi (small crocheted animals), license plate bracelets and artwork and more. Our girls could not take their eyes away from the woman painting henna tattoos, later asking me, "How does she do that so perfectly?" And our girls also loved the local juggler, who dazzled them with his talent and also gave them a chance to juggle with real juggler pins! I could go on and on (I think I already did). But recalling the images and aromas we experienced, is making my heart ache and my mouth water ....see you in 2012 BFM!
