Enjoy a local Farmer’s Market with the family from May to November this year ! Vendors at Burlington’s Farmer’s Markets carry a wide variety of locally grown fresh produce, baking, meats, cheese, hand crafted items and more.

Nothing tastes better than produce that’s fresh off the farm! Plus, with every purchase you know you’re supporting local farmers. Food that doesn’t have to travel far also means you’re not using up energy and resources for transportation, and you’re not using up any packaging or preservatives which is great for you and the environment. Sounds like a very Green decision! Plus, proceeds from these markets benefit Lions Club projects, helping those in need around us.
