Small Town Delights

Small town charm The neighborhood butcher, the Main Street hardware store, the welcoming shop owner capture everyone’s idea of a small town. Amish and “English” come to Middlebury to do business, greet their neighbors and catch up on local happenings in the newly renovated town center. A thriving main street Local merchants take pride in the personal service they promise with every sale. You’ll likely see them behind the counter, suggesting baked goods fresh from the oven, award-winning cheeses, flavored honey and smoked meats. Seasonal celebrations Festive events, brimming with food and fun, capture the local charm and include the town’s annual Summer (August 8 & 9) and Fall (September 19 & 20) Festivals and monthly “Third Friday” celebrations.
