Gillingham & Sons

16 Elm St., Woodstock, VT - (800) 344-6668
Gillingham's is a country store with an inventory that ranges from groceries to such arcane household items as wooden wheelbarrows, washboards, and soapstone griddles. The food inventory includes Vermont salad dressings, mustards, local cheeses, and maple syrup products. The single item we like best is ham: maple-cured and slow-smoked over corn cobs and apple wood.

Gillingham's has been serving the people of Woodstock since 1886. It is Vermont's oldest General Store; its motto: Your money's worth or your money back.

The vast selection of beers includes a long shelf of Vermont's own colorfully-labeled brews.

Gillingham & Sons offers a vast array of maple syrups, in four differing grades: fancy (very refined and light-flavored), medium amber (more robust), dark amber (very robust), and hearty (intensely mapley).

Gillingham & Sons is a joy to browse because it is huge and you never know what you'll see. Here is a selection of walking sticks.
