The Warren Store calls itself “The local store and so much more,” and they aren’t kidding. First of all, they have a bakery out back where they bake their own bread! Pastries, too! And desserts! They use some of that bread to make the sandwiches they serve. Try their most popular sandwich, the Number Six, with all natural roast turkey, lettuce, tomato, red onion & cranberry mayo (their secret recipe). They also have an outstanding wine shop, with Jack Garvin to blog about it on their website. Upstairs is their “More Store,” where you’ll find anything from toys for kids of all ages to clothing for the whole family. Browse through an original collection of jewelry, cards, gifts, and housewares. And they will ship anywhere in the world. Don’t miss the Warren Store when you are passing through Warren Village, Vermont.The Best 5: Vermont Country StoresThe best of a new breed, this old market redefines the concept of “general” in “general store.” Over the years it has evolved with its village, adding fine wines, Vermont specialty foods, and an upstairs “More Store” with clothing, toys, and other merchandise. Now breads and pastries are baked out back.–Yankee Magazine, September/October 2011The Warren Store is a modern country store as you might construct it from scratch: organic deli sandwiches, house-made pastries, creaking floorboards, and a potbellied woodstove.

Inside this former stagecoach stop is a first-class bakery, deli with homemade soups, gourmet dishes and pates, and shelves filled with Vermont delicacies. Upstairs, a remarkable gift shop carries items from around the world, and outside, the perfect picnic deck overlooks a waterfall.Yankee Magazine December 2008
