"Crunchy" food market, just a few blocks from the pedestrian mall in downtown Burlington (just a few more blocks to American Flatbread and the Vermont Pub). Has a mini whole foods feel to it. Great place to get a healthy bag of groceries or a bite to eat for lunch. Tons of cheeses, sandwedges, veggies, and of course all the Vermont locals and ample worthy (mostly domestic) others beer wise. They have a pleasant area to sit down and enjoy your meal, with windows out onto the bicycle riding, music playing, lovin life streets of great to visit Burlington. Always have a good time when I visit, and this place is well worth making a part of your day.

Little bit of one those "hippie/tree hugger" type of stores, grocery store, well, it does the trick if you're in the area, you won't be amazed by their selection. It's clean, and the store is always crowded whenever I'm in here. Service is decent. They get Heady on Wednesdays.

Otherwise known as 'Shitty Markup', this place has an ever increasing beer selection and a great hot/cold food bar. Unfortunately, you can't drink on premises but grabbing food and cans to go picnicking on the waterfront is always a great idea. The downsides are that navigating the weird aisle layout is awful, the parking lot is a nightmare, and the other customers are generally rude (either huffing at you being in their way or driving their carts right at you). The cashiers aren't friendly, helpful or efficient either. Expect your hot food to get cold while waiting for the gossip sessions in line to end. At least they sell quality goods, but it's generally a last resort stop for me personally.

There are definitely better options for beer selection in Burlington, but they do have a nice variety of VT beers. The rest of the store is what makes the place stand apart.

This place gets Heady Topper and Sip of Sunshine regularly. Difficult to find a parking spot and the aisles are narrow and hard to navigate.
