Hero’s Welcome General Store is a place to visit if you have a taste for adventure. Based among the Hero Islands in Lake Champlain, this Vermont general store is a quaint destination for enjoying a bite, browsing for goodies, and spending time in a scenic area. In addition to being charming, Hero’s Welcome General Store is a historic building that is more than a century old. Since being refurbished in 1993 by the current owners, the store has become a popular spot to grab a hearty sandwich, such as a BLT, burger, or grilled cheese. And while you can get to the store by car, we encourage a ride on a ferry or boat to the islands and store during the summer. Check out one of the best country stores in Vermont!

Where are some other general stores in Vermont I can visit?

  • Putney General Store (Putney): This well-established community hub replaced the original building constructed in 1796. Sadly it was the victim of two fires. The new Putney General Store reopened in 2011 and offers a deli case full of freshness. Order from a number of hearty or healthy sandwiches, including burgers, pulled pork, or lunch meat and cheese. Grab a pizza or consider this as a fortifying catering option.
  • Newbury Village Store (Newbury): Built in 1840, this store supplies locals and visitors with Vermont- and U.S.-made products. And in true general store fashion, you'll find bait, kayak rentals, a full grocery, pizza, a deli, VT and NH fishing and hunting licenses, and a VT big game check-in station. Folks can also place a weekly produce order.
  • Shaw's General Store (Stowe): Founded in 1895, this fifth-generation-operated store supplies some of the best toys and gifts around. Shop for quality apparel, footwear, and accessories. And don't forget to take home some authentic Vermont maple syrup and maple candy. Pick up a souvenir, from your choice of ornaments, magnets, and stickers.

  • Wilmington Antique & Flea Market (Wilmington): This family-owned and operated country market in Vermont opened in 1983 where a variety of vendors offer jewelry, antiques, glass, flowers, furniture, collectibles, arts and crafts, plants, and vegetables. Visit this lovely market mid-May thru mid-October every Saturday and Sunday and some Mondays.
  • Apple Barn and Country Bake Shop (Bennington): Several reasons exist for visiting this country store in Vermont. The baked goods of fresh pastries, pies, and other treats are a big draw — especially the homemade fudge. Have a coffee or tea with an apple cider donut baked fresh every day. Look for family-friendly events all year, such as U-pick blueberries, a corn maze, and a pumpkin patch, and visit the new Apple Barn Covered Bridge.
