Leaving for Burlington on Saturday. I believe we're taking 91 there and 7 home. Any favorites along the way? Thanks in advance.

      FWIW route 100 is much more scenic than 7. Not the largest selection but the country store in Weston has a nice selection and is a fun place to visit

        For a great experience *off the beaten path* try Sugarbush Farms. http://www.sugarbushfarm.com/
        Small but wonderful, no "canned" tour, just some local people with great products. We live up here and this is our favorite.

            Stop at Grafton for amazing cheddar. A few of their cows are outside the "factor" and they are beyond adorable. Inside they have samples of their cheddar. We give it as gifts for the holidays.

          It might be slightly off of Route 7 - but not to crazy a detour... I really like poking into Kennedy Brothers

          http://www.kennedybrothers.com/Kenned...

          They have a bit of everything

              Kennedy Brothers is now closed so you can cross that off your list.

                  My mistake - I lived 7 years in VT, though not the past 5, so I was assuming it was still open.

                  If you are in Burlington, one place I know worth trying is Cheese Traders right on Williston Road. It's less "tasting room" and more to purchase cheese. It's unique in that you can buy (for much less) randomly unshaped hunks of cheese from all over VT.

                  Also a wine store in the basement

                      Went to Cheese Traders (three times, but that's a whole other story) and loved it. We bought 11 different cheeses and some dessert wine and had a hell of a picnic. Thanks so much for letting us know about this gem!
