Posted: Updated:
WINOOSKI, Vt. - Downtown Winooski was packed with shoppers Sunday for the season opening of the Winooski Farmer's Market.

This year 25 vendors set up shop, offering everything from Vermont cheese to handmade crafts. Kids also got in on the fun with a program geared toward encouraging healthy eating. 'Power to Pop' allows kids to collect a few dollars in tokens to spend on fruits and veggies in the market. A band was also on hand to keep visitors entertained.

"You can just tell there's like a big excitement around the farmer's market everybody's happy to be back, tons of locals coming through. I see a ton of local faces and there's a lot of passers-by that come through -- tourists that come through," said Market Manager Lotty Roozekrans.

The Winooski Farmer's Market will be going on through October 12th.
