To our esteemed customers and friends,
First and foremost, let me say thank you, for your continued support during these difficult times and for the many friendships we have cumulated over the past 6+ yrs. We miss seeing your faces sitting around talking and laughing while enjoying your meals.
When we began this business, it was our hope to create a space that offered just that, the opportunity to come together in community and to feel nourished by the food in a beautiful space. Sadly, these are different times now. Small businesses everywhere are struggling to stay alive as discretionary cash becomes tighter for families, resulting in a substantial drop in sales. In addition, we lost the tourism business this year which helped to sustain small businesses like ours.
When this pandemic started back in March, we made the decision to keep our highrisk employee safe and yet continue to support you by offering curbside pick-up of groceries and meals. This was not an easy task for my three remaining hard-working employees, as they ran around shopping and putting meals together from our menu offerings. Realizing that this model of operating a business is simply not sustainable, we had to make the hard decision to suspend our menu and only offer what we can. The good news is that we are re-opening our doors on Wednesday, November 4th, for in-store shopping.
As mentioned above, we are suspending our full menu starting Wednesday Nov 4th. This coming week will be the last week that we run the full menu. Going forward after re-opening our doors we will offer:
Pizzas and burgers on Fridays only
- Market groceries
- Wine, craft beers, cider
- Bakery – including our specialty breads, pastries, cookies, cakes, and special orders
- Deli salads, sliced meats and cheeses
- Grab and go prepared foods and sandwiches
- Fish Club (pre-order)
- Espresso drinks, coffee, teas
- Ice cream and milkshakes
To prepare for re-opening we will be closed from next Saturday, Oct 31st through Tuesday Nov 3rd. Our hours of operation after re-opening will likely remain as they are, however they may shift again as we navigate through this new model of business. We will post any future changes on our social media pages as well as our website.
We hope you understand and respect how difficult this decision was for us and continue to support Falls General Store in any way that you can. Please help keep your little community store afloat. May you all stay safe and healthy.

Commitment To Quality
We opened the store on July 5, 2014 with the goal of providing fresh quality food to the area and giving back to the community. We believe in our mission statement in that if you “Eat Well and Live Well you will Be Well”. To do this we strive every day to provide fresh, quality food at affordable prices. Our growing list of partnerships with some fifty local Vermont purveyors offering the finest local products demonstrates our commitment to you as our loyal customers and the economic viability of Vermont.
Today the Falls General Store, a Natural Food Market and Quality Food Cafe’ and Bakery offers some of the finest products available in New England. We will continue to strive for this goal in serving you our loyal customers.
Fresh Ingredients, Traditional Methods
“La bonne cuisine est la base du véritable bonheur. – Auguste Escoffier “
“Good food is the foundation of genuine happiness.”
Every day we are commited to sourcing fresh ingredients to provide wholesome, fresh, quality food, prepared with care for you by our highly trained Chefs.
We make the dough fresh in our bakery, the sauce from San Marzano tomatoes, veggies and spices and source quality Italian mozzarella and parmesan. The result is only the best thin crust pizza!
Fresh Meats and Fish
We source our meat from local providers and quality purveyors to insure that you have the very best and fresh selection of meats and fish. Our fish comes straight from Boston the same day we order from Wood Mountain Fish.
Our produce comes from both local producers seasonally and quality sources when seasonal produce is unavailable. Only fresh produce can make quality salads and sandwiches.
Fresh Bakery Goods
In continuing our commitment to fresh goods, we bake all of our own desserts and breads in our in house bakery using only quality ingredients like butter and sugar instead of hydrogenated oils and high fructose corn syrup.
Bulk Food Options
A traditional aspect of the General Store that continues today at FGS is the availability of bulk items which offers products at a discount by eliminating the retail package. In addition this helps in eliminating packaging waste. Our selection includes a variety of candies, chocolates, snacks, rices, beans and dried fruits from quality sources.
Quality Retail Goods
We take the purchasing of our retail products seriously. By meeting with only quality vendors, including local Vermont food purveyors, we are able to source a wide array of healthy, organic and all natural groceries, as well as health and beauty products. We also carry a wide selection of the very best Craft Beers and hand pick all of our boutique wines.
What People are Saying
“My grandson and I were touring Lake Champlain and heading back to Massachusetts. We stopped here because a local person said they had great pizza. They were right!! This was a general grocery store that also make OUTSTANDING pizza and all of their own baked goods and pastries! We were SOOOO happy we stopped to get a pepperoni pizza and left with some pastries for the ride home. The staff are friendly and helpful and the cook came out to see how the pizza was – we gladly told him that it was excellent!”

“One of our best ‘stumbled upon’ finds in Vermont. This historic gem has been completely and beautifully renovated. What a Kodak opp! It must have cost a fortune to redo. The food is absolutely fabulous. The staff friendly. The baked goods out of this world. We spent a half hour just walking around looking at the Vermont unique items they carry before having a great sandwich from the deli. Suggestions: Get the Roast Beef and cheese grilled sandwich and the Pecan Shortbread cookie. Trust me on this.”

“An EXCELLENT place to drop by and have lunch! A cute store, along with great baked goods and top notch food for a little country store! This place was an unexpected find, and quite the little treasure! I used to go here as a child with my parents, but it has since been transformed into something amazing! I took my young kids and they loved looking at everything in the store while they waited for their pizza. Definately worth a stop!“

“What a treasure of a deli – in an expected spot! My husband and I stopped in on our motorcycle ride and had a fabulous lunch. I had a turkey/bacon/apple butter panini, and my husband had a philly cheesesteak. Outstanding fresh baked bread, fresh ingredients, YUM!
The desserts/pastries are OUT of this world. Great friendly staff, highly recommended!“
