Farmers Market

Join us every Thursday this summer for the Jericho Farmers Market at Mills Riverside Park on Route 15 between Jericho and Underhill, Vermont. We're open 3:00 pm to 6:30 pm, rain or shine.   Our 2014 season will be beginning a week earlier than usual on May 29th - Memorial Day week, just in time for you to pick up bedding plants!  We will also run an additional week in the fall October 2.  So June through September PLUS 2!

The Jericho Farmers' Market serves the communities of Jericho and Underhill, Vermont, as well as visitors from around the world, and we look forward to having YOU join us.

We have 20+ vendors carrying a wide variety of products - many vegetables and other agricultural products, but also plenty of prepared foods and artisan creations. We are fortunate to have a number of dedicated veggie and fruit vendors including folks who specialize in heirloom tomatoes, beautiful, bountiful greens, multiple colors of potatoes, fresh sweet fruit, fragrant herbs and brilliant flowers. Local producers also supply us with flower starts, wool, honey, maple syrup, maple sugar, and maple candy. We have beautiful and locally made wooden bowls, herbal soaps, photos, knit goods, handmade jewlery, stonework and other creative items for you to buy for yourself or as gifts (father’s day, wedding, baby shower, birthdays, anniversary - give them a little piece of VT!).

Our prepared food vendors create sauces, marinades and preserves, fresh wholesome bread and yummy baked goods. Soups, salads, samosas, moussaka, lasagna and more are available hot and ready to eat. We've set up picnic tables in the center of the market where you can enjoy your dinner, al fresco, or you can take food home, to go with your fresh veggies.

Our goal is to create a place where connections happen around fresh, local, farm grown food. By buying from the farmers at the Jericho Farmers Market, you support the Vermont farm economy and, by extension, the working landscape of Vermont. The farmers market allows you to meet the farmers that grow your food. It also allows the farmers to meet you, the neighbors that they work to feed.

We are committed to extending access to this wholesome food to all members of our community. To that end, we have recently received a grant that will allow us to accept Electronic Benefit Transfer (EBT) Cards for the Supplimental Nutrition Access Program (SNAP) at the market.  Starting in July we will have Harvest Health coupons that will DOUBLE the first $10 worth of EBT tokens.  Buy $10 worth of tokens with your SNAP benefits and we will give you an additional $10 in coupons!  We are excited about these new services we can offer.

You can support our market’s EBT program, by using your own bank Debit Card to buy $5 Market Tokens, which you can then use like cash at the market, for any goods or services.   

Come be part of this fun, festive, family friendly atmosphere where you can spend the afternoon shopping, browsing, chatting with your neighbors, eating, and listening to the weekly fare of live, LOCAL music. We are open EVERY Thursday, rain or shine, 3:00-6:30, June through September (except July 4). We hope to see you soon!

Find us in the roadside field at Mills Riverside Park on Route 15 between Jericho and Underhill, VT. . Take VT Rt 15 E from Burlington, Winooski or Essex towards Jericho and Underhill.
