Locally Grown & Crafted Traditions at the Stowe Farmers’ Market!

Did you know that Vermont leads the United States in the number of farmers' markets per capita; and Stowe has one of the best?  The Stowe Farmers’ Market offers a taste of local Vermont with an emphasis on natural and organic, from locally-grown produce to organic meats and free-range poultry.  Buying local produce that was potentially picked that day is the best way to be sure what you’re buying will taste the best that it can and stay fresh longer.  If you’re not looking for produce, but instead a day of fun, the Stowe Farmers’ Market can supply that too!  Visitors can enjoy live entertainment, delectable samples of artisanal foods, craft and cooking demonstrations, hands on activities and petting zoos, and special live entertainment from local musicians playing folk, bluegrass or jazz – click here for a full schedule of entertainment!

The character of Harry Brock has been played by a few famous men including Ed Asner, Jim Belushi and more, and “Born Yesterday” will continue to entertain theatre goers when it kicks off the 2014 season of the Lamoille County Players on May 2nd.

Harry Brock is a crooked junk dealer tycoon.  He brings his showgirl mistress, Billie Dawn, to Washington, DC where he’s come to manipulate legislation of a crooked deal.  Fearing he will be embarrassed of Billie Dawn’s lack of social graces, he hires a “tutor” to teach her how to fit in.  Vivid personalities come to life when Billie Dawn surprises everyone and understands more that she should about human relationships, corruption and self-worth.
