I have been coming here for a year since we bought a place near here. Not only does it have all the essentials - local farm eggs, dairy and meat also. Staff are super friendly, restaurant food with best burger on Vermont / East Coast / anywhere, breakfast, pizza - and all of it in a charming and very traditional setting. Fridges are wood with metal handles from a bygone era. A must visit!!!

We stopped in Pittsfield for lunch on our way to Stowe. I had gazpacho soup and a veggie panini. My husband had a sandwich. (I was so busy eating mine that I didn't even ask what he was eating). We both commented on how fresh everything tasted! It's really delicious.

The country store goodies were a nice mix of necessities and fun things. I bought a few candles and some granola.

The people working there were very nice! We will certainly return!

One of the best general stores we've been to in Vermont (and we've been to a lot!) From penny candy to an awesome wine cellar and selection to delicious banana pancakes and vegetable juices, this is a great spot in the quaint town of Pittsfield. A must stop when you're passing through.

We've had lunch at the Pittsfield General Store a few times now. We take the VAST 100 trail south and it's right there. The staff is always friendly and the lunch is always good and filling. There's gas and a place to park the snowmobiles right across the street.
