The Great Vermont Picnic

The Vermont Fresh Network is excited to present The Great Vermont Picnic this August. They invite folks across the state to take part in this month-long celebration of the farmer-chef connection.

It’s easy to participate! 

  • Order takeout from any local restaurant.
  • Pair your meal with a local beverage, cheese, fruit, or other choice Vermont product. 
  • Choose your picnic spot! 


Snap a photo and tag on Instagram - #vermontpicnic or #vfneats - and the folks you supported with your purchases.


Support Vermont Fresh Network chefs & members or search via Seven Days' Good To-Go directory of hundreds of Vermont restaurants. 


This month-long picnic event is a creative alternative to what would have been the Vermont Fresh Network's 24th Annual Forum Dinner. Having cancelled the dinner, they are also running a GoFundMe campaign alongside The Great Vermont Picnic to raise funds for their membership and organization.
