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.

We had a gorgeous afternoon at the waters edge of Lake Champlain and stole some time on the many swings surroundimg the waterfront. A small, park-like setting under trees and flower gardens. A few blocks away, was the farmers market outside of City Hall. We arrived just as they were picking up for the day (3 pm) but the selection... More

This is a great shopping area. The street is pedestrians only. Tons of shops and restaurants. Lots of local artisan shops, which we love. I hate going into shops and seeing things made in China or Vietnam. If I want a souvenir, I want something made where I am visiting. Just a great way to spend an afternoon. Watch shop... More

Church Street was buzzing with activity after this weekend's marathon and though we came after the event concluded; we shuffled through a modest crowd of people and local outdoor pubs and cafes. It was just a wonderful experience and finally had an opportunity to see some decent weather after all of the rain and severe winter in the Northeast.

Burlington, Vermont's Church Street Marketplace is fun, interesting and a very manageable size with local and national stores, a variety of great restaurants ranging from Leunig's Bistro (a mini Parisian bistro with fabulous food and atmosphere) to food carts in summer to Ben & Jerry's (the original Ben & Jerry's opened just a few blocks away) The Marketplace is only...

This type of marketplaces seems to be a thing for most towns. A Macy's store, a Starbucks, a few restaurants, the usual. The outdoor seatings for restaurants occupy a big part of the street. The atmosphere is comfortable, though. There are a couples of specialty stores. You can find some local VT products. It's nice to have 2 hr free... More
