I love VT!!!! I love the food. ITs the only State where you can actually do local. Not just food but buy local things like a glass plate, a wood bowl and its not made in CHINA!! The food is to die for , I bring a cooler and hit the farms and co-ops and organic spots then go home. I hit the local glass artists and wood workers. I think you people have some real good things in your State and your one State that does some things 100 percent right!!!!! Listen come eat at a bad chain or farm in NJ and you will running home for some VT food. Its terrible. Even your food cart guys are organic!! Its the best. Your State is the only State that can do this!!! BE PROUD!!

thanks just had to comment on how lucky VT people are, sometimes when you live in a State you forget or take things for granted. IF you love to cook, which I find very like therapy for me and are alittle into the organic scene (I am) your State is the only State that has the best and choices too!!! Not just on a Whole Foods circuit. I bought some of the best stuff this weekend!! You see I bodybuild and your food is the cleanest!

Thanks for the comments and the links!!!!!!

Hi Steve, We do have very good Farm to table, but every state has great food to offer now (including NJ). This is not just a Vermont thing (it actually started and was perfected in California). This is a good link There are thousands of links on the net to great food in every part of this country. The farmers market in of all places Detroit (Detroit Eastern Market - Detroit Eastern Market), is one of the largest and best in the country. Who would have thought.
Related to another thread, this is something we learned from those darn dirty Europeans.

This is a part of moving to VT for us. I think the big things for me are :
1) availability...
2) organic versus not

for example 4 organic farms within about 5 miles of here. those are just the "bigger" ones.

3) as a percentage i think more VTers care about this sort of thing (than say NJ population) which means its going to be more obtainable and more likely to be successful

on the flip side.. a lot of perishable things we cheat on (stuff that isn't local) are much more expensive or much less available. For example you can go get a ripe organic banana any day of the year in NJ but here they are more expensive and usually very ripe or green!

I saw a news story on urban farmer in Detroit. He is an ex pro ball player (can't remember his name), who invested his money into a farm located in the city, greenhouses and all. He created quite a business for himself, at the same time he is providing local food to impoverished neighborhoods and has created many jobs. Can't find the name of the farm right now. It was interesting. ETA: I was wrong. He is in Milwaukee, not Detroit. His name is Will Allen. The name of his farm is Growing Power.

Apparently there is a new documentary coming out called "Urban Roots" that covers the entire urban farming phenomenon in detroit. It hasn't been released yet. Urban Roots
