“Wonderful stop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 5, 2012

I live across the border in NY, but love to travel into Vermont. I have stopped at powers market many times over the years - the food and coffee are always wonderful. I love sitting at one of the small tables in the front window, or on one of the chairs on the porch. it is such a beautiful little spot - gives you a chance to just stop and relax for a short time. The staff (even changing over the years) has always been pleasant, no matter what time of day. Nothing beats sitting on their porch, with a warm baked good and a cup of coffee. Nice wine selection and local products as well.

“Historic Little market”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2012

This is a cute, well kept historic fixture in North Bennington. It's gone through a number of owners over the years, but the recent ones have kept up with the renovations. It is quite pricey, but a nice place to look around and stop for coffee. Most of the items sold are of the gourmet variety.

“A welcoming, funky college town sandwich shop.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2012

"Powers" is a combo grocery store/ sandwich place near Bennington College. No pretense - just tasty, generous, well prepared lunch fare. A pleasant trip back in time.

“Good value for breakfast or lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2011

This is a cute market, with a deli for takeout or eat-in. They have about 4 tables if you want to eat in. The service can be slow, but if you're not in a rush, relax and enjoy the good sandwiches and variety of teas and coffees.
