Side Dishes: Leftover food news
We Vermonters love our farmers markets, but last month they received some well-deserved out-of-state recognition. Website TheDailyGreen , which bills itself as “the consumer’s guide to the green revolution,” named Montpelier’s Capital City Farmers Market  among the country’s 12 best. Writer Gloria Dawson recommends the Saturday bonanza for its produce, as well as wine and hot sauce. She goes on to suggest attending the squash-tasting demo by New England Culinary Institute  students at the October 9 market.
Just last week, Livability.com  placed the Burlington Farmers Market  in its list of the “Top 10 Local Farmers Markets” in the United States, making it the only Northeastern market so honored. The website, which is devoted to sharing “America’s best places to live,” says it offers “the products of a bigger market while keeping the more intimate feel of a smaller one.”
