Tips / Destination

If you’re visiting Burlington, Vermont, in the near future, don’t miss out on the city’s shopping options.


Right in the heart of downtown Burlington, Church Street is the place to go for the best independent, boutique shopping in the city. The pedestrian thoroughfare is lined with shops selling a variety of home goods, clothes, sporting goods, books and more. The streets jutting off from the main thoroughfare are just as packed.


Vermont is known for its agriculture and artisan food producers, and you can find a taste of that culture by going to Burlington Farmers Market. Seasonally open on Saturdays, the market offers a range of vendors hawking everything from rugs to glasswork, baked goods to tacos.


Bookworms will want to stop into this Vermont mini-chain, with two other locations in Essex and Rutland. The bookstore’s cozy atmosphere and helpful staff make it easy to browse for hours. Make sure to head to the basement for some book bargains.


Homeport is a locally owned and operated store, offering four floors of home goods. Whatever you think you might need for your home, you can probably find it here. Items are always changing and you never know what you’ll find as you browse the dog-friendly storefront.
