Church Street Marketplace Burlington, also known as Burlington Town Center, is the heart and soul of downtown Burlington. Encompassing both an enclosed shopping mall totaling nearly 300,000 square feet of retail space, and an outdoor four-block pedestrian only mall, Church Street features both nationally recognized chains such as Macy’s, Banana Republic and Patagonia, along with specialty shops such as Moose Tattoos, Ten Thousand Villages and Kiss the Cook.
In addition to being a great place to find a unique Vermont treasure, Church Street Marketplace is the center for year-round activities. From the Saturday Burlington Farmer’s Market during the summer and the annual 4th of July fireworks celebration, to various festivals including the Burlington Jazz Festival, the Festival of Fools and First Night Burlington, Church Street attracts visitors and locals alike.
