Summer Harvest at the Norwich Farmers Market

I have been remiss for far too long and I intend to rectify that starting today. It is time to let everyone know that Norwich, Vermont is a wonderful place to live and visit. We have been here going on three years now and one of my favorite things to do is head to the Farmers Market on Saturday morning. From May thru November, the Norwich Market is held out-of-doors in the fields by the community gardens and Dresden playing fields on Route 5.

This sunny Saturday morning, stands were awash in color, brimming with fresh tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, onions and all sorts of vegetables and fresh cut flowers. A local band played folk meets fiddle dee music while residents, trail hikers and tourists mixed, danced and ate.

Fellow VRBO rental owner Peggy Allen from Savage Farm had a stand stacked with gorgeous dyed yarns made from the coats of her sheep. IMG_2946

She and I discussed recent events at VRBO that we are not in favor of – since Expedia bought VRBO they have added fees that guests must pay when they book their stay at our rentals through the website. In the past, VRBO only charged the owners and while that continues they now also charge the guests which just doesn’t feel right to us. We both want to encourage our guests to book us directly by calling us.

The rates are still listed on VRBO but if you call Carriage House at Dutton Hill we will be able to book you in and alter our calendar while taking a payment with pay pal and avoid the extra fees. I will soon publish our new phone number for anyone wishing to do it this way. In the meantime, you can always reach me on email at:

We have a lot of openings still for leaf season which begins in late September and peaks during the first two weeks of October. Come and enjoy the colors that I aliken to a big bowl of trix cereal and hit the farmers market for some fresh foods to make in the kitchen in your carriage house rental.

Hope to see you soon!
