Overview

We are The Vermont Country Store, the Purveyors of the Practical and Hard-to-Find. Step back in time as you browse our aisles of long lost products that still work as well today as they did "back in the day!" From countless jars of penny candy to Vermont's finest selections of locally made cheese and meats, to problem-solvers for your household to toys for the littlest ones, you'll feel like you took a step back in time, and become a kid in a candy store when you walk through our doors! Check out our brand new Mildred's Market for sandwiches, soups, bakery items and much more great prepared food items. Come and visit our covered bridge and grist mill!

This store has everything from soup to nuts. Items of long ago. Its like an old fashion general store. Ask for a catalog and browse yourself.

This store has been completely redone since I'd been there last, but loved every second. We found that we truly love BLUEBERRY cheese! I love getting to sample crackers/cookies/cheeses/jams. Got our classic glass soda bottles and enjoyed seeing all the nostalgic toys.
