No one personifies Vermont’s resilient, free-thinking, creative spirit better than a maker. And in no place is that spirit more vibrant than Burlington. Just go into one of the many shops in and around Church Street, or visit the farmers and artists markets from May to October. Take a stroll down Pine Street from the Soda Plant to Flynn Avenue, where scores of artisans and craftspeople work daily in incubator spaces and studios. Rest assured, handicraft is alive and well in this neck of the woods, and moreover, it's beloved. Make sure you get a piece of Vermont craft to bring home with you!
Here are just a few of those makers who share that distinct Vermont spirit.
