The Vermont building provided 23 Vermont vendors with a unique way to share their Green Mountain products. Some of the vendors included the Skinny Pancake, Danforth Pewter and Ben and Jerry’s.

Gov. Phil Scott even stopped by the Big E to show his support.

“We are a small state, small population, but we have a lot of depth and the agriculture is such a big part. It’s like the backbone, and this gives us the opportunity to show the rest of New England what we do and why we’re so special,” said Scott, R-Vermont.

The Big E continues until Sunday, Oct. 2, In West Springfield, Massachusetts.
