With harvest season underway, Burlington has a brand-new farmers market on Wednesday afternoons through September. It’s in same City Hall Park location as the big Saturday market, but this one is different.
On one recent Wednesday, with fewer than dozen stalls, there were few customers. But what vendors and customers were present were enthusiastic.
Pam Chumski Higgins is on the board of Slow Food Vermont, the group organizing the Wednesday market.
“People are just so excited. But people didn’t know about it. So we are just trying to get the word out,” she says.
