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?
