More Than A Market: Food, Community and Family in the Markets of Burlington and Winooski

For generations, neighborhood groceries, bakeries, and butcher shops have formed the heart of Burlington and Winooski’s communities. From the mid-1800s to mid-1900s, French Canadian, Italian, Irish, Lebanese, Jewish, and German markets were concentrated in Burlington’s Old North End and Lakeside neighborhoods and near the mills in Winooski. Since the 1980s, immigrants from Vietnam, Bosnia, Bhutan, and Eastern and Western Africa have carried on this entrepreneurial tradition. Learn more at Champlain College’s ninth annual Local History Event, which will feature a talk by Charlotte Barrett of Historic New England.
