Our take: Stowe Mercantile is a really fun stop if you are shopping in the Stowe village and a must see. It’s a store with all sorts of Vermont goodies ranging from clothing to snacks to fudge and more. They often have samples of local foods to try. In recent years they have added a craft beer section that features local Vermont breweries. The store is located in the basement of a historic building and right next to the Green Mountain Inn.
