    ESSEX JUNCTION — The Vermont Farm Show returns to the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction.

    The 81st annual show takes place today through Thursday and includes more than 150 agricultural exhibits from tractors to livestock to equipment.

    This year includes a Buy Local Market, with foods and products from Vermont farms. There also will be a “Capital Cook-off” on Wednesday night, in which teams from the Vermont House of Representatives, Senate, and Agency of Agriculture will have 90 minutes to create a dish using Vermont products.

    It's the second year that the show will be at the fairgrounds after moving from the Barre Civic Center, which hosted it for years.

    Organizers said the new site is more spacious and provides a better experience for guests.

    Parking and admission are free.
