I have to disagree with previous reviews that mention lots of homeless and smoking. I almost didn't go to Church St because of that! Turned out to be a fabulous outdoor mall with one of best farmer's markets I've ever been to- don't miss this place. I abhor cigarette smoke but barely noticed it here- no more than anywhere else....

It was interesting. There were numerous shops and outdoor eating places. Most restaurants were pricey. We did eat at Sweatwater which was reasonably priced and the food was good. Hard to find parking and if you do it is paid. There is a nice mall with a lot of shops that branches off of it. An outdoor restaurant had a... More

My husband and I happened upon this while driving through Vermont and NY. We were thrilled with all the organic and health food vendors - and there was a real variety of foods available. It was a great find!

I recently visited church street as I have in the last 8 summers. I'm from Florida now, but originally from the north. I went into the nail salon in the mall to get a "fill" for my nails. They said they could fit me in in a few minutes. I said no problem, I would do some shopping. Long story... More

I think that when Church St was first conceived, it was quite special, unique, but now, well, let me just say that we were disappointed. It's an outdoor pedestrian mall. That's all. Lots of stores, many of which are chains, lots of places to eat, outdoor street entertainers. Most big cities offer the same exact thing nowadays. There was some... More

We were at the Church Street marketplace for an afternoon/ evening & had a lovely time. We windowshopped the many fine stores along the marketplace and stopped for drinks at RiRa. The open air marketplace was humming with people, lots of young children and street musicians. A round of applause to the young man who played the violin near Ken's... More

We visited Church Street twice while vacationing in Burlington. This street is beautiful with lots of shops and dining options. Dogs are very welcomed. We only found one un-scooped souvenir and managed not to step in it. There were several scary people of varying ages, but no one approached us or made us feel unsafe. The only negative on each...

I love Church Street. I love the whole atmosphere, the food, the beverages, the shop, and mostly the people watching. End up here a few times during every BurlyTown visit. Usually walk up and down a couple times and then grab a coffee and a bench and just watch it all. Always check out the store but don't tend to... More

Church street is a great area. Lots to see and do. Many restaurants and shops. There is a large mall also. You can find some great shops with local Vermont made items. Very close to Lake Champlain. Really a fun place.

Note: This in not Santa Monica Street 3rd Street Promenade or Pattaya Walking Street or Shangxia Jiu Pedestrian Street or even Wangfujing Street. Pearl Street Mall in Denver is closet comparison but not Santa Monica or Fremont Street in Vegas. This is four blocks of some eating places, drinking places and few shops as well as a normal enclosed shopping... More
