City market is a health food store. Inside they have a sandwich bar and a small pay by weight self serve buffet. The majority of the items were vegan or vegetarian. The items were marked vegan and included an ingredient list. A full plate of food cost around $6. My favorite item was a warm freekah dish with mushrooms. The food was very good. There is a small seating area and the staff very helpful.
The store itself was large and typical. The prices were better than a whole foods but not as good as Wegmans.

Pros: buffet mainly veg, friendly staff

Excellent place. This store is right in the city and gets a lot of business with seating both inside and outside. The hot bar has good veg food, and there are many other options within the store. Can't wait to go back...

Whenever you're traveling through Burlington, go to
City Market (

Their food is consistently good! There is a hot bar of tasty food (e.g., vegetarian chili, au gratin potatoes, sesame noodles, greens, tofu, etc.). The store also has a good selection of packaged ready to eat food (e.g., sushi, masala dishes, grape leaves, etc.), as well as artisanal cheese, bread, etc. Oh, and if you like wine, you'll find it there!

There is a small indoor and outdoor area to sit and eat. However, it gets crowded sometimes. So try to find a chair
and Bon App├ętit!

Pros: Tasty Food, Full scale grocery store, Good service
Cons: Eating area is tight, The fruit is pricey but it's organic
