Top Five Local Only Killington Shops to Visit

Those who love to shop will find a variety of options. Killington doesn’t have a downtown per se, so things are spread out a bit, but there are tons of ski and snowboarding Killington shops, convenience stores, and bars and restaurants scattered throughout the area. Here are our picks for the top five local shops to visit near Killington!

Fire on the Mountain

This shop may not be for everyone, but it is sort of fun. Fire on the Mountain is one of those Killington shops your mom wouldn’t let you go into when you were a kid but were really pretty harmless. Fire on the Mountain sells CBD products, glass, vape and all smoking-related items. They offer smoking accessories, clothing, and handcrafted items related to all things smoke. Their CBD related products include tinctures, distillate, lotions, bath bombs, cartridges, and a selection of edibles. Plus, they have an awesome selection of handmade, unique Vermont glass designs from artists all across New England. And they have an in-house glassblower who does live glass blowing demonstrations in the store and offers glass blowing lessons. It’s worth stopping just to watch the glassblowers work their magic!

Quechee Gorge Village

The Quechee Gorge Village caters mostly to tourists, but every so often, even for locals, it’s fun to browse through the shops, especially after a day playing at the Gorge. When you need to find that special, quirky Vermont gift for a friend, this is the place where you can find plenty of fun options. This antique mall was established in 1985 as a combination Woodsman Museum, Country Store, and Antique Mall, and over the years it has turned into a shopping mall with a wide variety of stores. A few of the stores and attractions include the Vermont Toy and Train Museum, Cabot Quechee Store (offering yummy, delicious Cabot cheeses), the Vermont Gold Liquor Store (featuring Vermont distilled products including Vermont wines), and Tasting Room. Plus, there are vendors offering a wide variety of items, with antiques, local arts and crafts, handmade candles, soaps, lotions, and more. You can find plenty of food items made with local Vermont maple syrup too. There’s a little train for kids to ride when the weather is nice, and an alpaca farm in the back where you can pet and feed the alpacas! Try on some alpaca gloves or a scarf – you’ll love them.

Rutland County Farmers Market

Rutland is one of the few places lucky enough to have a weekly farmers’ market open year-round. It’s worth the short drive for the fresh, local products. There’s a wide variety of produce and handcrafted items, including local fresh fruit and vegetables, breads and pastries, local cheeses, wines and spirits, maple syrup and maple products, as well as jewelry, knitted items, and crafts. The Downtown Rutland Farmers Market is in Depot Park and is operational year-round; they just move it all inside to the Vermont Farmers Food Center during winter months. Hours may vary depending on the season but will be approximately Saturdays 9 am – 2 pm (with the full number of vendors) and Wednesdays 3 pm – 6 pm with a smaller number of vendors. They accept cash, or you can buy tokens with your debit card.

Basin Ski-Ride-Bike

Basin Sports has been operating in Killington since 1958, just before the Killington Ski Resort opened. It started as strictly a ski Killington store, but over the years they have expanded their operations and they have become the place for snowboarders and mountain bikers too, as well as a great spot for anyone looking for gear and apparel for almost any mountain sport or activity. Basin has been named the best ski shop in New England twice and is popular with visitors and locals alike. It’s just the place to go for what you need when you’re heading out for a day of mountain fun. Basin Sports is open every day from 10 am to 6 pm.
