Step back in time as you browse our aisles of long lost products that still work as well today as they did "back in the day!" From countless jars of penny candy to Vermont's finest selections of locally made cheese and meats, to problem-solvers for your household to toys for the littlest ones, you'll feel like you took a step back in time, and become a kid in a candy store when you walk through our doors! « less

Love this place! This is the "original" store and has the old time feel of a country store. We loved the penny candy and many of the candy varieties that are not available in your local neighborhood store. Definitely provided a trip down "memory lane" with many items bringing back memories of going to Grandma's house. The little restaurant next... More

I recently bought pumpkin seeds from Vermont Country Store and submitted a very positive, glowing review, stating that these were the best pumpkin seeds I had ever tasted. I said nothing but positive things in my review. They refused to post it, even though it did not violate any of their guidelines. I read their guidelines thoroughly and in no... More

While it is cute to see a country store, prices are high and nothing is worth buying. There are free samples but that is the exciting part.

The Vermont Country Store lives up to its reputation as a place to find just bout anything. We stopped here for a brief visit, and ended up spending an hour browsing, reminiscing, and enjoying the wide selection that is available - clothing, housewares, gadgets, toys, food - lots of stuff to check out. We did buy a few items. Parking... More

We're so glad we stopped by this store! Tons of delicious samples: cheese, chocolate, cookies, crackers, maple syrup...the list goes on and on! Also, a great place to find a unique, interesting gift if you are shopping for someone special. The store is in a beautiful area in Weston, Vermont and totally worth your time.

I couldn't believe how light the traffic was heading up to Weston to visit the Vermont Country Store; I thought on such a beautiful trip from New York that many people would be taking advantage of the beautiful weather and would be vistiing New England's mountains. However, I couldn't believe how many people were at this site...It is a charming... More

If you've ever gotten their catalog you have to go. Tons of samples of their cheeses, dips, cookies, salsa etc...Fun to look through all the old games. Something for everyone although some things were pricey. Delicious food next door.

My wife loves the catalog that we get from time to time in the mail. And knowing that we were going through Vermont, she insisted that we schedule a stop to visit one of the actual stores. And since people know we were going to the store, we were given a few shopping lists. I wasn't sure what to expect,... More

Dear Jeff, So glad that you and your wife enjoyed your recent trip to our store. Yes you are right we are still one of the few places that you can actually buy "Penny Candy" for a Penny! We do try our best to stock everything that the catalogue offers, however, with some space limitations we at times run out... More
