Re: “Beyond the Burger: Surveying Vermont's Summer Snack Bars

Guess I will have to take a trip around Vermont and try some of these places.

Re: “Beyond the Burger: Surveying Vermont's Summer Snack Bars

What about the Burger Barn in Jeffersonville?

Re: “What Works, and Doesn't, About Farmers Markets?

Very interesting article! Although I admit I skimmed it for now as I am set up selling my Happy Bird Poultry Farm chicken at the Milton Farmers Market amidst a bunch of other farmers, growers and bakers! It's not a big market like the Burlington but it offers a diverse variety of local flavors! We are here beside Hannaford on Rte 7 from 4-7 every Thursday!

Re: “Milton Diners Take Comfort Food Seriously

Allow me to translate this article...
There's no restaurant in town to sit down, order a healthy or fresh or just not fried menu item, and pay somewhere around $10-15 a person. But apparently there are pokemon. And grease.

Re: “Beyond the Burger: Surveying Vermont's Summer Snack Bars

Yes, yes, yes to Honeypie. We've imposed strict regulations on the household to limit our visits to once a week...otherwise we'd be there every night. Hot tip: even if you're just ordering the single burger, trade up to Woodcock Farm's Timberdoodle for the cheese!

Re: “Tapping Into the Adirondacks' Growing Craft Beer Market

The following is an excerpt from a letter that appeared in the June 27th Plattsburgh Press Republican. Clearly we do not think Prom Night Cherry is a "fun and creative brew."

We’re disappointed by owner Jessy Jolicouer’s decision to name one of Oval Craft’s beers Prom Night Cherry.
Although a June 5 article in the Press-Republican referred to this beer as Prom Night, the full name as shown on Oval Craft’s website is Prom Night Cherry, described as “a blonde ale with hints of cherry” that’s “a great introduction beer for the non-craft beer drinker.” The label depicts a pair of women’s legs wearing a man’s top hat.
The innuendo of the name and label (i.e. when a girl has intercourse for the first time, she “pops her cherry;” prom night is often depicted in popular culture as an opportunity for sex) paired with the description of the beer as light and easy to consume, would seem to suggest that craft-brew “virgins” will enjoy this beer.
But we strongly object to marketing an alcoholic product that makes a joke out of the overt sexualization of teenage girls and the problem of underage drinking, particularly by linking both of these things to prom night.
Local high school students, teachers and parents work hard all year to ensure that prom night is an enjoyable and safe evening for all its participants.
Prom Night Cherry undermines those efforts by making light of sex and drinking during prom and ignoring the role that binge drinking often plays in sexual assault, drunk driving and other violence and injury, especially among teenagers and young adults.
We respectfully ask that the name be changed.
(See Press Republican for full letter and list of signers)

Re: “What Works, and Doesn't, About Farmers Markets?

"Some people wonder if prepared-foods sellers who don't use local ingredients — and are therefore not supporting local farms — should be allowed at farmers markets. But in areas where people have less disposable income, the opportunity to purchase less expensive food may be essential to attracting them to the market. In Chittenden County, many of the food businesses that rely on non-local ingredients are owned by New Americans and provide them both an income and a means of sharing their culture."

I appreciate this paragraph so much. Its such a good reminder that there are so many factors to consider when thinking about "good" food. I try to be aware of eating things grown close to home, and I also want to support small businesses. Sometimes this is mutually exclusive, sometimes not. Thank you for this article Suzanne.

Re: “Tapping Into the Adirondacks' Growing Craft Beer Market

To say that the Rye IPA is a local favorite at Blue Line Brewery is a fib. That beer has not been made there for over a year. They hired a new brewer in the beginning of last winter (12/2015). There are now 7 beers on tap. They were voted best in the Tri-Lake Area last spring by the readers of the Daily Enterprise. And their menu has changed. Please stop by and see what the Author missed.

Re: “Parking Problems Hamper Burlington Food Trucks

Ice cream trucks were around long before food trucks became trendy. Do similar regulations exist for them?

Re: “Parking Problems Hamper Burlington Food Trucks

What parking problem? I challenge anyone, anytime any day off the week, not to find parking here in this neighborhood....

Re: “Parking Problems Hamper Burlington Food Trucks

As a small business on Pine Street for 10 years now I welcome any and all creative activity in our neighborhood.
Especially the food trucks have been a wonderful addition to this area.
They also have been very good neighbors and deserve the support and consideration of this community.
Overall foot traffic is up and tourist as well as locals really appreciate the expanded venue that puts an interesting spin walking and exploring the city beyond Church Street
This Historic district needs to be fostered and not stifled.

Special thanks to Arts Riot and SEABA.

Re: “Parking Problems Hamper Burlington Food Trucks

I can't make any guarantees, because I need to understand what the concerns of all the legitimate stakeholders are, but I'll examine this issue and the use of discretion at certain locations. The trucks are an important part of the local food culture.

Re: “How Can Farm-to-Table Restaurants Survive?

As someone who owns and operates a food business, getting paid the same as the staff, it's exhausting. Everything is always on the line, there is no end to the work day, and it's hard to keep going if there isn't some light, be it money or other benefits, at the end. Right now its driven by passion, and I totally resonate with the chef's/owners here (and eat at their restaurants).

Katherine, consider what would happen if no one wanted to take the risk of owning something? What incentives would exist to create new businesses trying to upend things.

Richard, Hipster nobheads are annoying, and there is a huge lack of accountability in the restaurant industry. How are we to know whether something came from a massive feedlot or grassfed (which is now meaningless thanks to Ag. Dept.)
