Took a side trip while my wife was shopping at the mall down the street. Some bargains can be found in the closeout section (3.99 Organic iced teas for 99 cents? sign me up!) and the selection of cheese is fairly good (prices range from bargains on cabot ends to higher for Jasper Hill products). Found a couple gems from... More

This is a delightful place to poke around. You are sure to find something that suits your palate. We particularly like the Vermont products section. The peanut butter made with honey is out of this world. As the name of the establishment would suggest, the wine and cheese selections are extensive. The staff is friendly and helpful.

Ok, before the new management took over, this retail establishment was known as Wine and Cheese Traders. Now they are Cheese and Wine Traders. Selection of chesse and foreign food: great. Nice discounted wines in the basement: yup. The big pull for locals: discount chilled dairy/non-dairy products and fancy organic/natural unusually flavoured junk food. My spouse and nick named this... More

We made a quick stop here after the arrival of Santa downtown. Great prices on cheese, snacks, candy and more. I will make it a regular stop when I am in Burlington.

I like this place overall but you should know that the reason the items are cheap is that many are expired. I bought a taco kit on sale but nowhere did the sign say expired. And I'm talking 6 mos!! I was treated like it was MY problem on return and they only exchanged it for a one month expired... More

Hi NewHampshirePeppie, Thank you for your review and sorry for any inconvenience you may have experienced while shopping at our store.

All of these items are marked as "Closeouts" on their signs so customers know they are buying these items. We do not knowingly sell... More

Loved all the different varieties in this place. Basement was all wine to choose from. I wanted a local wine and they had a good selection. Upstairs was all kinds of food stuffs. Nice place.

Not really a restaurant, instead more of a fun, upscale boutique food grocery market. Definitely strong in the specialty cheeses, this is a favorite spot to try new things. There is a rotating sample counter that has 5-6 different things (mostly cheeses) that are featured. Good place to get snackies for a party. The basement is full of wine but... More

Every wine under the sun from Every Country on earth, not really but close. Fantastic choice of cheeses and crackers. Lots of local foods and nice choice of dried fruits and chocolates.

Cheeses, wine, interesting foods. Cheese Traders has it all. Best selection of Kosher wines in Chittenden County, VT - Passover is approaching...And, best of all, samples are readily available. GREAT prices on cheese, especially local - Cabot and Shelburne Farms.
