ESSEX JUNCTION — Francis Bronson of Bridport has been a regular at the annual Vermont Farm Show for 30 years, and this week attended the 82nd annual fair at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction even though he has left dairy farming.

While looking over some of the show’s more than 150 agricultural exhibits, Bronson said he was impressed by some of the technological advances on display.

“There’s some innovative thought processes on some of this stuff,” he said. “I wish some of it was around when I was still going.”

MIDDLEBURY — When I asked Honorio how he got to the United States, he responded with one word.

Corriendo,” he said. Running.

Two and a half years ago, when most 17-year-olds in the United States were getting ready for the prom or searching for their first summer job, Honorio was trekking the Arizona desert alone, in search of a better life.

STARKSBORO — Before this year, Eric Rozendaal had never been to Brooklyn, N.Y. Now, he’s visited a dozen times — not as a tourist, but as a vendor of authentic Vermont food at an increasingly popular New York City market.

Rozendaal and his wife, Keenann, own Rockville Market Farm in Starksboro. Every weekend, he travels to “Smorgasburg,” a weekly outdoor food market held in Brooklyn. Smorgasburg hosts 75 to 100 food vendors every week at two locations in the city’s second-most populous borough.
