If you’re a localvore at heart—plus enjoy one of Vermont’s finest dining destinations—then Vergennes is your place to indulge this August.
Throughout the month of August in Vergennes, Main Street’s 3 Squares Café’s Chef Matt Birong partnered with several local food producers for a “localvore” spectacular of entrees and specials.
Fresh View Farm of Charlotte and 3 Squares Café presented their heirloom tomatoes, corn, zucchini, and melons. Run Free Veal, Tannery Farm braised chevon (that’s goat meat for the rest of us), Boyden Farm burgers, and Vermont Butter and Cheese also starred on 3’s August menu.
Rounding out August was Vergennes Day on Aug. 27 which included a townwide street party for the smallest city in Vermont. The day included an antique car show, Rotary Club rubber duckie race, pancake breakfast, Little City 5K & 10K races, hot-air balloon rides, horse-drawn wagon rides, chicken barbeque, bandstand music, shuttles to all events, and more than 80 vendors downtown.
