The Brattleboro Farmers Market is soooo Awesome!!! the guy with the Pate, with the french cooking, the Russian tea guy, the couple with west african food and the great vendors.

the worse place i ate in brattleboro was the vegetarian place downtown. It was tasteless, and the burritos had no spice, is that because people in VT afraid of spicy food or vegitarians dont season their food?

Probably because it was a burrito. That was the only thing that I found disappointing about the food in VT - no real Mexican food anywhere! It seemed to me that nearly everyone was white, and the food was too. I am as well, but I come from a very diverse area. The county I grew up in is over 30% Hispanic/Latino, so needless to say, we have lots of good spicy food! Although that New England food is soooooo good, there is not a lot of variety. I found several places that had different foods, but they were not authentic.

My family is crazy for the maple donuts made by The Very Small Donut Company in Waitsfield, and I love the Cabot Annex in Waterbury with all it's free samples.

i am crazy for Grafton Cheese and will drive in a snow storm for it, as well as good ole Maple Syrup.

the burritto wasnt the only thing bland at that restaurant(and I was talking about only that restuarant), the food was awful.

I love Mocha Joe's!!!

Ahhhhh, Grafton cheese!!! Seriously, cheese has always been my favorite food, and Grafton's 1 yr cheddar is the best I have ever had! Just spent a bundle having a bunch shipped to me as a birthday gift to myself. I also got a fresh bottle of syrup.
Since I brought it up, do you know of any authentic Mexican places anywhere there? I would love to know if there was. The only place I came across was called "Gringo's" and I wasn't ABOUT to go in there!

i dont think so, i lived in Mexico growing up and I can tell you I havent found many in the Northeast that meet the truly authentic--though my palate is probably too sensitive to authentic foods from TExas mexico and central america

Default My Favorite Food

My favorite food is salsa. I must admit I am a salsa addict. I have a salsa collection in my cupboard, probably 20 different brands at the moment. Some of my favorite salsas are Newmen's Own Peach, and Granny BLossom's apple salsa. My #1 favorite salsa has to be with out a doubt Michaela's Gourmet "Famous Original". It is just the right thickness (not too chunky /not runny), and the flavor is to die for!!!!!!!
I have never tasted another salsa this good. It is head and shoulders above anything else.
