As the holiday season begins in earnest, set yourself up for less stress and more time to enjoy the lights by planning ahead and keeping easy options on hand. Having a few (delicious) shortcuts within reach not only means healthier meals, but also gives us more time to spend celebrating with others, creating family traditions, and enjoying the season. There are only two more ordering cycles in December because of when Christmas day falls this year. Farmers To You will be closed the weekend of December 23rd and 24th so that our staff and partners are able to enjoy some time off. Until then we have gifts, holiday treats, and all the fresh, beautiful food you have come to expect.
La Vialla's gorgeously preserved summer flavors are here to ease us through the winter months. Plan ahead for easy weeknight dinners of pasta (spaghetti, tagliatelle, fusilli) paired with tempting sauces (Asparagus, Tomato, Olive & Caper, Red Pesto); use sun-dried tomatoes or Sugo Bombolino as a base upon which to build your own masterpieces. White balsamic, so delicate and lively, is the perfect finishing touch to salads, braises or fish. Extra virgin olive oil will be on sale the rest of this month, so stock up on everything Italian and make healthy, fresh eating easier during this hectic period.
Larger bags of baking essentials like pecans and walnuts should make preparing your pantry a breeze. The arrival of cold brewed, barrel aged vanilla is also a matter of much excitement (for some of us, anyway!). With organic sliced almonds, maple cream, dried fruits and a range of flours, Farmers To You has your baking projects covered.
Vermont Artisan Coffee & Tea's roasting barn is a short drive from our hub and they are dedicated to sustainable practices. All of their teas are organic, bagged in biodegradable material, and come in a lovely little tin. Enjoy some Earl Grey or Assam when you need a pick-me-up, or try the soothing Ginger Lemongrass. For a real treat, fix yourself a Honey Chamomile Tea Latte, and make it extra special with some turmeric or ginger pouring honey.
Babette's Table is a small, woman-owned European style charcuterie company that handcrafts their products in Waitsfield, Vermont. Their mission is to build community around good food by providing an equitable workplace for their employees, strengthen connections in the local agricultural community, and bring people together around tables where their products are served. They source 100% of their pork from local family farms (Von Trapp Farmstead, Pigasus Meats, Snug Valley Farm, and PT Farm). They know their farmers well and work with them closely. The high quality local pork they provide results in a difference you can taste in their products.
Erika Lynch, Babette's Table’s founder, owner, and salumist, is originally from Kentucky and grew up with a rich tradition of food. She trained in Gascony, France to learn the art of fermentation and curing, and she apprenticed with a master butcher there to hone her skills. Erika and her wife, Julie, who is originally from Vermont, started Babette's Table by selling their products at the Waitsfield farmers' market.

Here is our promise so that you can feel good about your buying decision.
We sell food grown in a regenerative and sustainable way. Our farmer partners care for your health, and for the land, animals and the environment. The farmers and producers share their precise farming and production practices.
We find the best foods available in New England from more than 100 local farmers and producers. It is hard to find other markets with this breadth of local, fresh and delicious vegetables, meats, cheeses and other foods.
Our partnering Farmers and Producers are some of the best in New England. Most are organically certified, and those who are not use sustainable practices. They are in this for the love of food, farming, and the art and craft of it all. Get them into a conversation about their crops or animals, their soil practices, or their land and be prepared for a lengthy and passionate discourse. They are masters of their craft and are all very excited about the nearly direct relationship they have with you. All of them feel it is essential that families know the people who produce their food. They are fully committed to the well being and health of your family.
We are on a mission to build a trustworthy and sustainable food system by connecting farmers and families. We carefully select quality, clean and flavorful foods and commit to a waste-free, safe and regenerative regional food system. Our farm-fresh food comes from the best New England farms. With more than 100 farmers and producers we've got you covered from vegetables, meat and dairy to beverages, home and health. Our farmers take great care with their farming practices to support our communities, the land and your health.
