We are the City of Burlington and we Love Burlington! Our small business community is the heart of our City. They create the spaces we gather in, the events we celebrate, the gifts we give, and they foster community throughout. COVID-19 has caused devastating effects in endless ways - our small business community included. Through this unprecedented time, our locally owned small businesses need some extra love and attention. Burlington may be small, but is recognized nationally for the wonderful shopping, dining, events, and experiences created by our local businesses. Not to mention, they create jobs right here at home. For every dollar you spend at a local business, 67 cents stays in our economy. Local businesses also donate more to local charities and non-profits than national chains.
We created Love Burlington to amplify the voices of our small businesses and help you find local places to shop, eat, and experience. Please dive in and take a closer look. We bet you’ll find many businesses you never knew existed. You can sort by neighborhood (check out our neighborhood pages!), category, and even discover businesses that are BIPOC owned. We’re here to celebrate every aspect of small business and are happy you are, too!

Shoot us a message to get started! Love Burlington is a project of the City of Burlington and cannot list businesses that are not based in Burlington, Vermont (despite how many incredible businesses we have in our neighboring towns and state!). Currently, we only list Burlington-based artists and direct-to-consumer businesses focused on dining, retail, and services such as gyms, mechanics, and salons.
