Specialty Foods


Vermont is well-known for its specialty foods. Familiar products such as maple syrup, cheddar cheese, and apple cider; and gourmet products such as chevre, salsa, and chocolates have created an epicurean delight in Vermont. The significant number of businesses producing specialty foods contributed to the need for the Vermont Specialty Food Association. The Vermont Food Venture Center provides facilities for those wishing to try their hand at creating a best-seller!
