Stewart Says 

Side Dishes: Vermont matters in Martha's new mag

Vermont is hot, hot, hot, and it's not just due to unusually warm May weather. Yet another national magazine, Martha Stewart's new Blueprint, features a slew of Vermont products in its May/June issue.

The three-quarter-page spread appears in a 17-page segment labeled "Perimeter: Personal Style from Every Angle." Write the editors: "Constant raves from the food department about all things Vermont — the local artisans, the quality ingredients, the lack of pretense — convinced us to take a closer look."

Which products did Martha's minions zoom in on? Dragonfly Sugarworks maple syrup, Woodstock Water Buffalo yogurt, Magic Hat#9,Green Mountain Granola, American Flatbread, Pop Soda and a trio of artisan cheeses from Taylor Farm, Thistle Hill Farm and Twig Farm. No word on why they only chose cheeses from farms whose names begin with T.

It's certainly nice to be called "a good thing." But if all this media attention touches off a rush on Vermont products, will there be any left for Vermonters?

How do you feel about eating GMO foods?

  • I don't understand what the fuss is about. I eat them and I'm fine.
  • As long as they're FDA-approved, I don't mind consuming them.
  • GMOs are in most staple foods, so I'm resigned to eating them.
  • I wish they were labeled so I could make informed choices about when to eat them.
  • I'm concerned about potential long-term health effects of consuming GMOs, which haven't yet been studied.
