Summervale Slow Food Tastings!
All summer long, we partner with the Intervale Center, who’s mission is to strengthen community food systems. What better way for Slow Food Vermont to participate, than to set up our tasting tent and help eaters to interact with their food!
For 9 weeks, we will be set up between 5 & 8 pm on the lawn at the Intervale Center tasting a wide range of wonderful items this year! We are sure you will walk away from each week’s tasting with a little more knowledge, some thoughtful exposure to great local foods, and a new-found appreciation for how special our tastebuds are!
All tastings are free!
This Week’s Tasting:

Featured Producer: Mara & Spencer Welton, Half Pint Farm, Burlington’s Intervale
Mara and Spencer are in their 12th season of owning and operating Half Pint Farm in Burlington’s Intervale. They are passionate growers on their 2 acre parcel, and focus a lot of time growing heirloom and heritage vegetables – each year over 400 varieties! This Summervale tasting will feature 25 of their 80 varieties of Heirloom Tomatoes, each one a different color, flavor, and experience!
