What to see in Burlington’s South End

The South End of Burlington is full of hidden gems. UVM students need to venture out to this area more because, while Church Street is great, Pine Street and Flynn Avenue are home to some of the coolest shops, vintage markets, restaurants and, of course, a few favorite local craft and micro breweries outside of the mainstream. So, if you need some extra motivation to crawl out of your hibernation cave as Burlington gets colder and colder, here are some cool new places to explore.


Vintage Lifestyle Marketlifestyle

Vintage Lifestyle Market focuses on providing people with different vintage goods and art to dig through. There’s also a ton of stuff for those who love to craft and make their own art. In May, Vintage Lifestyle Market is part of BTV Flea, Burlington’s take on Brooklyn’s flea market, which takes place in the South End.


Four cornersCorners of the Earth Deli

This tiny sandwich shop has 40 different sandwiches on their menu. It is on the pricier side, but is definitely worth it. The Jamaican Avocado sandwich and the Thai Chicken are the most popular options. This place also has craft beer, coffee and other drinks available to warm you up.


Speaking Volumesvolumes

If you’re looking for a record store other than Burlington Records or Pure Pop, Speaking Volumes is the place to go. This old record shop is right next to Myer’s Bagels. I had no idea this place existed until I found a coupon for it inside the Seven Days “What’s Good” coupon book. They have old records, record players, antique furniture and books for sale.


Citizen Cider

Citizen Cider might be one of the most ubiquitous drinks around Burlington. This hard cider is made with fruit grown and har- vested in Vermont. Their brewery is on Pine Street next to Four Corners of the Earth. On their website they feature special deals each week available in their tasting room, such as “Taco Tuesday” or “Hot Dog and a Can” on Thursday’s.
