I like this place overall but you should know that the reason the items are cheap is that many are expired. I bought a taco kit on sale but nowhere did the sign say expired. And I'm talking 6 mos!! I was treated like it was MY problem on return and they only exchanged it for a one month expired... More

This was a quaint specialty store with various products offered from Vermont food artisans. The assortment of food was extensive from meats, cheeses, sirup, and other food stuffs. Staff was very cordial

Not really a restaurant, instead more of a fun, upscale boutique food grocery market. Definitely strong in the specialty cheeses, this is a favorite spot to try new things. There is a rotating sample counter that has 5-6 different things (mostly cheeses) that are featured. Good place to get snackies for a party. The basement is full of wine but... More

Every wine under the sun from Every Country on earth, not really but close. Fantastic choice of cheeses and crackers. Lots of local foods and nice choice of dried fruits and chocolates.

Cheeses, wine, interesting foods. Cheese Traders has it all. Best selection of Kosher wines in Chittenden County, VT - Passover is approaching...And, best of all, samples are readily available. GREAT prices on cheese, especially local - Cabot and Shelburne Farms.

In addition to the extensive wine list and great cheeses, it also carries hundreds of other food items, stuffed grapde leaves, pastas, crackers, chocolates, exotic chips in all flavors, bulk grains, coffee, greeting cards, olive oils. The cheese samples are wonderful as are other samples throughout the store. Great bargains on both cheese and wines from all over the US... More
