"Strawberries, always strawberries," Gray said. "And the shelled peas," Hare added. "And then, of course, we always hit the pizza pretty hard," Gray added, referring to the pies on offer from Northfield's Field Stone Farm.

Ferren Langella-Williams takes in the scene. "He likes the music," his mother, Jesse Williams, said. "And the dogs. He loves looking at the dogs!"

Nate Rogers of Berlin's Rogers Farmstead, with sons Elliot (top) and Tristan. "We rarely come to the market," Rogers said. "But we're trying to drive retail sales in [co-ops and grocery stores]. We don't struggle to sell [wheat] flour," he added. "But the dairy is a nice complement [for our business]."

Alan LePage at the LePage Farm table. "We've got 1,000 CBD cannabis plants coming," LePage said, citing concerns about transplanting a new crop during the previous week's heat wave. "But we're being well paid to grow them," he added, noting that his heavy clay soils in Barre are resilient when it's hot and dry. Plus, LePage said, "The wholesale price for [CBD cannabis] is rather attractive."

Lauren Belknap and Brendan Hughes of St. Johnsbury Distillery. "I purchased Dunc's Mill [Distillery] in November," Hughes said. "We're rebranding now as St. Johnsbury Distillery." Many of the company's classic products, such as its popular elderflower rum, he added, remain the same.
