A Fall Visit to the Vermont Country Store

Today I drove over and spent the day at the Vermont Country Store in Weston, Vermont. The Vermont Country Store, are purveyors of the "Practical and Hard to Find" since 1946. They feature heritage products and brands from the past. They have two locations in Vermont, one in Weston and the other in Rockingham. You may also visit their online store and shop online or thru their catalogs.

Fall in Vermont is always special with all the beautiful mountain foliage. And so is a trip to the Vermont Country Store. It has such a quaint and New England feel to it that just makes you happy.

Upon entering you may choose one of their custom bags or a cart and a bag to shop with. This is part of their procedure to stay safe during these pandemic times.

The store is broken into different sections for you to shop.

Women and Men's Clothing / Bath and Soaps / Pets / Toys / Bedroom & linens / Kitchen / Cleaning Supplies / Maple Syrup / Candy / Cheese, Crackers & Dips / Christmas. There are many other miscellaneous products scattered within as well.

The Vermont Country Store is chock-full with goodies from days gone by. You will discover products you'll remember from your childhood that you will not believe. Like these bottles of Lemon Up! Be truthful, do you remember this shampoo from the 70's if you are old enough to remember?

And where do you ever see people weighing themselves in public? I had to wait for the line to go down before taking this photo of an old fashion scale where people actually wait in line to weigh themselves.

Another section worth mentioning is the "Reduce Reuse" section of recycled products. And isn't this building absolutely beautiful with all it's wooden beams and flooring? It's filled with all the character of an old New England home or barn filled with products that will just warm you up on a Vermont fall day! I promise!

The candy section is ominous really, with a full candy counter where you can create your own assorted candy bags. Homemade chocolates of all kinds and you will find all the candies from days gone by here too. Super delicious!

No country store in Vermont is complete without its own cheese room! The cheese room at the Vermont Country Store also includes dips, sauces, pickles, and pastas. It's such a delight.

*Pre-pandemic you could taste all the cheeses and dips, which was so much fun.

And we can't forget all the Vermont maple syrup. Vermont is the nation’s leading producer of maple syrup. Producing over 2 million gallons of syrup in 2020, Vermont generated over 50 percent of the country's maple syrup, which stems from more than 1,500 sugarhouses statewide. And if you haven't tried Vermont's rich maple syrup paired with Vermont cheddar cheese, you are seriously missing out!

My favorite Vermont maple syrup is made by Dorset Maple Reserve. The Smoke & Spicy is my favorite. It's absolutely amazing paired with some Vermont cheddar cheese. Dorset Maple Reserve also shares their favorite cocktail recipes with their very own maple syrup on their site too. It's so decadent!

And upon leaving you'll want to grab a homemade dish made with all the cheese, syrups, dips, etc. at Mildred's just outside the steps of the Vermont Country Store.
