Shopping

From local boutiques to national chains, you’ll find great shopping options throughout the region. Shopping centers like the Church Street Marketplace and the Essex Experience offer a nice combination of both. If you're into thrift and vintage, we’ve got you covered. There’s also an outstanding collection of outdoor retailers in the area that will get you outfitted for the mountains and the lake in any season.

But honestly, if you don’t leave Burlington with a local souvenir, you didn’t do it right. This place is packed with talented makers creating everything from waxed canvas bags to mid-century modern birdhouses. You’ll find amazing handcrafted pieces made with wood, glass, metal, and an awful lot of love. Thankfully, you can easily find local retailers that showcase our local craftspeople.
