MEAL DEALAt 5 p.m. all premade sandwiches are discounted 50 percent; at 6, deli items are reduced 25 percent. Vermont’s culinary revolution from its maple-and-cheddar past is nowhere better exemplified than at this chic market on downtown Burlington’s southern fringe. Market? That’s a modest term for a purveyor of fine cheeses from around the world, including organic Vermont sheep’s, goat’s, and cow’s milk cheeses; assorted dry salamis; an olive bar in a sumptuous palette of glistening greens and blacks; artisanal breads; fresh, local organic produce in season; and an extensive wine selection, with an emphasis on moderately priced bottles. You can linger in the cafe over panini ($5.95) and maybe a cup of Green Mountain coffee with a pistachio macaroon or a Guinness brownie.
