A Vermont farmer's market......

Another wonderful Vermont day.  We started off, as usual, with a big breakfast in the Inn.  We got to set out on the glassed in porch with lots of other people who are here enjoying a long holiday weekend in Vermont.  Check this breakfast out.
We've had absolutely the best food and everything is local.  They have signs all along the roads we travel that says "buy local".  The menus tell you where everything comes from.  Check out the farmer's market they had at the Country Store in Dorset today.

This was just a small sampling of the tons of things they offered.  Their produce was so pretty and lots of cheeses and, of course, maple syrup.  So much fun!  I bought my kids home-made crayons & sketch book.

We then headed up the mountain.  This was a house that they were just finishing.  You hardly see a new house but this one was incredible.
These are some of the very old houses that you see everywhere here.  And almost everyone is decorated for fall.

This was my favorite picture.  It was taken at the sight of an old mill in Weston.

OK, so it's my 2 favorite pictures.  We still have 2 more days in Vermont but only one more day at Barrows Inn.  They've been so nice here that it will be like leaving good friends.  What a wonderful trip this has been.

Have a great week!

Good morning!
I just discovered your blog...we also were in Vermont this month for the big antiques weekend. We stayed in Manchester and visited Bromley, Ludlow, Weston, etc....just a beautiful area, but so devastated by Hurricane Irene. Loved the grist mill in Weston...such history. We went to a Farmer's Mkt. in Ludlow ....wonderful things. How did you hear of the lamp shade workshop? Sounds like a good and productive time. Enjoy!!!!

OMG, Jan, these pictures are beautiful and should be in a New England magazine! All those baked goods made me hungry. And the big old homes are Amazing. I believe you and Judy when you say you ♥ VT. Thanks so much for sharing all this with us. Miss you. Glad you're having a wonderful time.

Cindy - I found Judy Lake's book on Amazon & purchased it. Found out about her classes & figured it was the perfect reason to come to VT. I have a shop & wanted to make shades to sell -- so I did. It was great! Thanks for checking in. Jan

Oh wow. That market looks amazing...and the food...and the views...and the leaves...and the buildings...



I'm jealous.

Just a little bit.

But I'm glad you got to do this.
