ESSEX JUNCTION, Vt. — The annual Vermont Farm Show takes place this week with exhibits, equipment, animals, and Vermont foods and products.

The three-day event opens Tuesday at the Champlain Valley Exposition.

Organizers say 155 exhibitors are taking part in the Farm Show this year, with about two dozen of them participating in a new event — a job fair. Those exhibitors will be offering job information and interviews for businesses in large equipment sales, value-added products, education, insurance and government.

Consumer night featuring a local market with more than 50 producers of local foods and products happens Wednesday. Vermont legislators and Agency of Agriculture staff will compete in a cook-off at 5:15 p.m.
