|Subject: Re: N. Vermont and Hudson River Valley|
Since my parents live in the northern half of Vermont, I visit regularly; it should be nice in fall. As far as recommendations go, the one that comes to mind is a bakery-cafe whose card I've been keeping on my desk waiting for an occasion to mention it. It's called Rainbow Sweets, in Marshfield Village, on U.S. 2 between St. Johnsbury and Barre. They have great pastries, puff paste-based lunch foods, and smoked fish. The owner is quite a character. Closed Tuesday.
