The Brattleboro Area Farmers' Market is Southern Vermont's premier farmers' market featuring over 50 vendors with agricultural products, crafts, live music and animals and ethnic foods from around the world. Whether you are local or a tourist, you can stop by to get your weekly produce and grab a quick lunch, or come with your family and stay for the day! Opens early May.
Our Brattleboro Specialty Cheese & Wine Shoppe is located close to Route 91, across from the river and next to the Retreat Petting Farm. A visit to our Brattleboro store includes an opportunity to watch our cheddar being made via our viewing area.
"The store is pretty big inside and has a variety of cheeses that they make on site and they have samples available of all of them. So no need to wonder if you will like it or not or if paying extra for the 2 year aged over the 1 year aged is worth it or not. They also stock a wide range of cheeses from other local Vermont companies and farms. I picked up some fresh goat cheese as well that was awesome.
In addition to cheese they had Vermont wines (which I never realized existed) and selections from every brewery in Vermont I have ever heard of. They also had lots of other food products and trinkets made in the area."
The first Friday of every month is Gallery Walk in Brattleboro from 5 to 8:30 PM. Around 40 individual sites, including galleries, museums, and eateries show off local artist works. Those works include photos, paintings, sculpture, glass, and novelties.
