My hopes for spending time exploring the Monday morning Farmer's Market at Smugglers' Notch were dashed by a second day of rain. So pictures were taken between gasps of sprinkles. The market was also just starting to reflect the season's produce, so note that as the summer evolves, the stands will offer greater variety.That being said, we picked up delicious blueberries and just picked local asparagus from Valley Dream Farm. Dinner that night consisted of the asparagus with bacon and ham from the Growing Farm in Eden, Vermont. We washed it down with sips of wine from the Boyden Valley Winery. There were also spicy, organic sauces from Benito's Hot Sauces and baked goods from Sahvie's Kitchen.
The Farmer's Market takes place at Smugglers' Notch from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Monday mornings.
