As out of town visitors, we loved the experience of shopping with the locals (and, I'm sure, a few other tourists). The coop overs everything from locally sourced and baked bread to cheeses, ciders and beers, and more.

City Market, Onion River Co-op, is a community-owned food cooperative with two locations in beautiful downtown Burlington, Vermont. Our Downtown location is Burlington's only downtown grocery store, open to everyone 363 days per year from 7 a.M. To 11 p.M and our South End location is open daily from 7am to 9pm. City Market provides a critical service to the residents of Burlington and the larger community by providing a wide variety of local, organic and conventional products at a fair price to all. We also offer a hot and cold food bar, grab and go meals, coffee and tea, a made-to-order sandwich bar, and a deli. The Co-op is also extremely dedicated to supporting the local economy and enhancing the sustainability of agriculture. . We are member-owned, so the profits generated by Co-op members are returned to our members through our Patronage Refund program. Patronage Refunds that are not cashed by Members are donated to a different community non-profit each year.
