French Heritage Day

We love farmers, we love food, and we love fun. It’s a no brainer we’d add a little *spice* to our season with monthly special event days!

In June, join us for our annual day celebrating French heritage with music, education, children’s activities, and French cuisine!

French Heritage Day is June 30, 2024 at the Winooski Farmers Market (20 Winooski Falls Way) from 10am-2pm.

Tourtiere pie adorned with ribbon and wild onions.
