EatingWell's August issue has an article about America's top-10 farmers' markets. The Union Square Greenmarket in New York City, Ferry Plaza Farmers' Market in San Francisco and Portland Farmers' Market in Oregon made the grade. And no wonder: Their voluptuous offerings range from fresh-shucked raw oysters to orchard-ripe peaches. Another that made the list: Capital City Farmers' Market in Montpelier. Yep, the market with some 40 vendors was ranked alongside the country's crème de la crème. See for yourself at 60 State Street, Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. . . . A trip down Route 7 takes drivers past the burned-out shell of the Ferrisburgh Roadhouse, formerly known as Burdick's Country Kitchen, which went up in flames last week. A peek in the window revealed recognizable objects, such as a Coke machine and what seemed to be a roll of twine, amongst the charred debris. Owners Marcos and Claudia Llona plan to rebuild the establishment . . . There's a new vlog in town, but this time, the "v" doesn't stand for "video," it stands for "vegan." Or it could be for Victoria, the spunky, recently meat-free blogger who's posting her recipes at Victoria's Vegan on Her latest creations: sesame curry burgers and Cinco de Mayo stuffed potatoes. Sounds veggielicious . . . This Friday, the new, improved Junior's will open in its $1.6 million building behind Burger King in Colchester.
