How does the market work? When do I show up?…FAQ’S

  • Early arrivals (before 9am) – PLEASE do not park around the perimeter of the Mad River Green where the market is held. These areas are essential to vendors unloading and setting up for the market.
  • We have a deli-style number system in place and will begin handing out numbered tickets by 8:00am at the Mad Taco in Waitsfield. At 9am, if any beer tickets remain – the hand-outs will move to the farmers market area. LOOK FOR THE MAN IN THE LAWSON’S SOMBRERO! If any beer remains after all ticket holders have been served, we will be selling that beer on a first-come, first-served basis around 12:30pm
  • These BEER TICKET numbers will be on an order form with the list of beers and bottle limits so that you can have your order ready (please fill out the form). There is a schedule on the reverse side with the approximate time window to visit our table. We have a lighted LED number sign that is visible from a distance with the current number being served. If you miss your number, you may get into line at the table to be served.
  • We have enough beer so that everyone who gets a numbered ticket will likely have the opportunity to purchase 3 or more varieties of beer. We will only have enough Double Dose IPA to serve the first 135 people. The Maple Tripple and Stout will be available on a first-come first-served basis.
  • The MAD TACO will be hosting a Lawson’s Finest tap take-over! We’ll have 5 Lawson’s beers on tap and a breakfast buffet starts at 8AM. Breakfast is $10/person and cash bar is normal pricing per pour.
  • Plan to wait at least 1-2 hours after collecting your number before your turn arrives. Plan to shop at the other vendors who will be offering an amazing selection of farm fresh vegetables, meats, cheeses, breads, baked goods, crafts, gifts, maple syrup, and much more!
  • Please do not wait at our table. The market has a limited amount of space, and unless you are actively shopping at other vendors or enjoying some of the prepared foods and beverages at the tables in the green, then you are blocking other customer’s access to vendors at the market. Please also note that the picnic tables at the market are intended for people who are purchasing prepared food and drinks at the market. Please do not sit at the picnics to wait for extended periods of time.
  • Beer sales begin at 9am. At the summer outdoor market, we also offer glassware, including our new 16oz Willi Becher, 16oz Pint, and 13oz Belgian-style Tulip, and all glasses will be specially priced at $6 each including VT Sales Tax!
  • Lawson’s Finest does not accept credit cards. Cash or local check only. Thank you.
