Getting Fancy 

Side Dishes: Vermont producers hit the big time

Once a year, the Fancy Food Show fills New York’s Jacob Javits Center with about 2500 vendors. North America’s largest marketplace of specialty bites has long hosted a smattering of Vermont businesses. This month, from June 27 to 29, they will band together for a supersized display under the banner of the Vermont Specialty Food Association.

It will be Nitti Sachdeva’s first time at the show. The owner and sole employee of South Burlington’s Deva Naturals will sell berry, peach and mangosteen chutneys, spice mixes, and dried fruit, all prepared in her kitchen. Fellow VSFA members such as Castleton Crackers and Vermont Cookie Love will join her in promoting Green Mountain food products.

More established Vermont companies will also be present, including Fat Toad Farm and Vermont Smoke and Cure. Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery will premiere its Double-Cream Cremont, a traditional French-style goat cheese made extra rich by the addition of cow’s milk and cream. Sounds like a treat...

How do you define "local" food?

  • It must be grown at a farm in my town.
  • I'd like it to come from within an hour's drive.
  • If it's grown in-state, that's fine.
  • If it's from New England, that counts!
  • I'll go with the USDA definition: if it's produced within 400 miles of my house, it's local.
