Here at DigInVT, we love the holidays. The season is an opportunity to indulge in delicious, local foods, sip on all the warm drinks (boozy or otherwise), and purchase handmade gifts from Vermont's talented local makers for our loved ones.
If you haven't quite finished your holiday shopping, check out one (or many) of the holiday markets below. They'll have just what you need for the family members or friends left on your list. Plus, you'll be shopping from small businesses and supporting our state's artisans and entrepreneurs. And shopping with a locally crafted beverage in your hand is sure to put a holiday spring in your step.
