Summer Farmers' Markets


What a busy year at the market! My Kids' Kitchen has been making breads and jams for all our local and tourist customers. The favorite bread this year is our "Maple Oat bread". Made with our delicious maple syrup which we made this spring. Another favorite is our "Triple Berry Jam" made with local island strawberries, blueberries and raspberries.

Soon fall products will be available like our delicious "Maple Pumpkin Butter" and "Apple Butter" both are wonderful on sandwiches, toast, and scones. Another favorite this year are our pickles. We have added "Dilly Beans", and "Bread and Butter Pickles" along with old favorites of "Garlic Dill Pickles and Pickle Beets" to our table. All made with our garden vegetables and without the use of pesticides. Of course the children are part of taste control, letting us know if they are tasty enough for selling.

A new item "Cheesy Bread Sticks" has been added to our collection of breads. A customer asked us to add this to our table because she thought they would do well. She was right and now we have added these fragrant items to our table regularly.

Soon the weather will turn blustery and the tourist will return home but hopefully they will have purchased a little bit of Vermont that will last with them throughout the winter season.
