Experience all the high quality foods and beverages produced in and around Vermont’s beautiful Northeast Kingdom in one unique central marketplace and culinary destination.

Sip an award-winning ice cider from Eden Specialty Ciders at the Tasting Bar, savor a fresh-from-the-oven treat at Jocelyn and Cinta’s Bake Shop, explore the world of maple presented by Butternut Mountain Farm, taste the goodness of Dolcetti’s gelato—the Italian delicacy made entirely on-site from fresh ingredients, order a specialty coffee at the Center’s café, Beans by the Border, enjoy a tasty meal and a pint of Hill Farmstead craft ale at the Ciderhouse Bar and Grill. It’s all delicious and it’s all locally sourced!
