The Baker’s Store, Café, and Baking Education Center
In 2012, King Arthur Flour finished a renovation that put our store, café, and education center all in one beautiful, new building. The new space is a mecca for bakers, foodies, and anyone looking to increase their baking knowledge.
The new campus has an outdoor courtyard, where lunch from our café can be enjoyed with friends or family. The space is also the site of fun events – festivals, ice cream socials, and more. Just yesterday, we hosted a Mother’s Day weekend Brownie and Bar Challenge. Check out this ooey-gooey goodness!
Ben & Jerry’s Factory
Ice cream. Need I say more? Visit the Ben & Jerry’s Factory to take a tour, sample ice cream, and visit the Flavor Graveyard. (I fear the day when my beloved Coffee Heath Bar Crunch gets put to rest.)
If you’re with a group, try the Vermonster. Not for the faint of heart, it includes 20 scoops of ice cream, 4 bananas, 4 ladles of hot fudge, 3 chocolate chip cookies, 1 chocolate fudge brownie, 10 scoops of walnuts, 2 scoops each of the 4 toppings of your choice, and whipped cream.
Cabot Annex Store
Once you’ve had your fill of ice cream, head over to the Cabot Annex Store to get your fill of cheese! Browse their selection of quality products, and sample their award-winning cheeses. Also, in the same complex you’ll find delicious Lake Champlain Chocolates. And finally, wash everything down with some tasty Green Mountain Coffee.
Killdeer Farm Stand
Killdeer Farm Stand is next door to King Arthur Flour. If you like local, fresh, seasonal and organic produce (and really, who doesn’t?), this is the place for you. Killdeer’s fruit and vegetables are always high quality. And if you love flowers… you’re in for a real treat!
Dan & Whit’s
Head into the town of Norwich to find Dan & Whit’s, a Vermont general store. Their motto is, “If we don’t have it, you don’t need it.” And that’s pretty accurate. You can find anything from food to clothes to household items to pet food. They also carry a variety of Vermont products that make fun gifts or souvenirs.
