From the Woodstock Farm to the Market on the Green!
If you find yourself in Woodstock VT on a Wednesday afternoon between 3 and 6 p.m. this summer or fall, make sure to stop by the Market on the Green for fresh produce from the Woodstock farm. This year is the 6th Vermont farmer’s market season, running from June 6th to October 3rd. You’ll see either David or me there each and every week!
The market is an easy walk from our Woodstock, VT bed and breakfast. We have plenty of refrigeration, and we’re happy to help you store your purchases while you are enjoying the farmer’s market.
We met Mark from Plymouth Artisan Cheese last year at the Market on the Green. It is hard to imagine that we missed out on this great cheese for so long, but we’re tickled to have discovered it. Actually, Julia Child was a fan of their cheese. Enough said. The cheese is made from raw cow’s milk that is sourced from a single herd that lives right near the President Calvin Coolidge’s State Historic site in Plymouth, VT, just a 25 minute drive from here. We use East Meadow for recipes that call for Swiss (such as David’s take on Quiche Lorraine), and the Hunter in place of Cheddar. They are both aged, but Hunter is aged for more than a year, so it has a lovely sharpness to it. Mark is happy to tell you about each of the cheeses, which you can sample and buy right at the market.
Having my own small garden at our Woodstock bed and breakfast makes me appreciate even more how hard our farmers work. We’re able to grow all of our own herbs for breakfast, including parsley, basil, rosemary, mint, thyme, and oregano. Check out our fabulous crop of Swiss chard this year, plus zucchini, cucumbers, tomatoes, and bell peppers. We look forward to sharing our bounty with you, and hope to see you soon!
