Grocers & Farmstands & Treats

Clear Brook Farm

Shaftsbury, VT

We’ve been known to go here twice in one day. This is the farm stand of all farm stands. Fresh organic produce, herbs, local baked goods, local meats and cheeses, flowers, and more. In summertime when I don’t know what to make for dinner, I run down to Clear Brook and get bread, caprese makings, and some sausage for the grill. Never disappoints!

The Chocolate Barn

Shaftsbury, VT

Delicious confections and fabulous home-made ice cream, made with local, seasonal ingredients. They make their strawberry ice cream with berries from Clear Brook farm right across the road from them. My favorite is pecan praline.

Krijnen Bakery

Bennington, VT

FRESH BAKED GOODS | Fresh baked breads, pastries, pies, cakes that are among the best you can find anywhere on planet Earth. All from scratch. Great sourdough. Their mocha latte is unrivaled, real GANACHE PEOPLE! French silk pie… speechless.

Earth Sky Time Farm

Manchester, VT

This is a wonderful organic veggie farm with a world-class wood-fired bakery to boot. I think you can go right to the farm to buy bread and pastries but you’ll also see them at the Manchester and Dorset farmers markets as well. During the summer, they also do a vegetarian dinner buffet at a local inn.

A small natural food grocer with lots of local food available.
