Uncommonly Vermont


Nestled in the heart of Vermont's Green Mountains, Waterbury’s historic downtown connects three of Vermont’s most scenic roads, including Route 100 and Route 2.

Our innovations range from a small coffee roaster introducing the world to single-serving warmth, to ice cream with funny names and flavors scooped all over the world. We are sculptors, artists, snowboard makers, chefs, farmers, and tea blenders.

Our mountain bike trails, river walk, parks, and reservoir are unrivaled places to satisfy your greatest outdoor pursuits. From here, you can be on the slopes in no time, and even engage in a friendly game of croquet in the dead of winter!

We invite you to feel the warmth of a genuine community. Food fresh from neighboring farms makes us a gathering place for people who seek to connect with one another and with what living in Vermont is all about. As you wind your way from Keurig Green Mountain, to Ben and Jerry’s, to Hen of the Wood, please savor our farm-to-table food; sip a glass of local craft beer, a mug of coffee, or a cup of cider. Immerse yourself in local art, or find a unique gift in our stores.
