The event showcases a wide variety of Vermont-made products, including furniture, wine, specialty foods, crafts, lighting and more.
The trade show runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.

The state of Vermont identifies “a made in Vermont” product as: A material or ingredient substantially transformed into a new and different item, with a name, character or use distinct from that of the ingredients or components from which it was transformed.”
The show will include three “spirit rooms,” set aside for brewers, wineries and distillers.MORE IN This Just In
