Prepared Foods & Café COVID- 19 Update

To support the overall health of our community and limit exposure to potential contamination, we have transitioned to pre-packaged sandwiches and ready-to-eat items from the hot and cold bar. Additionally, we have closed our café spaces at both stores in order to comply with social distancing recommendations.

Updated March 17, 2020

City Market is home to one of the finest and most affordable options in Burlington with our deli, hot and cold food bar, salad bar, and sandwich bar. You can make your own salads, pick up hot or cold meals to go, get your cold cuts the way you like them, or enjoy a sandwich in our café.  We have options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and beyond!


Stop by our Deli to pick up meats, sliced to your specifications!  In addition to popular brands, we also have meats available from local farms and made in-house. Interested in ready-to-go items? We have a rotating selection of deli items and dishes available at our deli counters as well.

Signature Sandwiches

Stop by our made-to-order sandwich station to order one of our famous Signature Sandwiches or build your own. Most sandwiches can be purchased in either whole or half sizes. Breakfast sandwiches, including bagels and City Market cream cheese are also available. Don't have time to go through the sandwich line?  We have wraps, salads, sushi, City Market soups, and more available in our Grab 'N Go cooler. Take a look at the Menu!

Coffee and Teas

Need a cup of Joe? Or some green tea to kick start your day? City Market features the Fetco Coffee System which guarantees the freshest coffee served at proper temperatures. In addition to the unique coffee system, each coffee has its own unique profile. Besides being organic and fair trade, all coffee brewed at City Market is now 100% roasted by Vermont roasters. The Vermont roasters include Vermont Coffee Company, Vermont Artisan Coffee and Tea, and Brio Coffeworks. All of these local coffees are also available for purchase in our Bulk department. We also feature some of the most popular teas available including brands such as Equal Exchange, Organic India, Traditional Medicinals, Wisdom of the Ancients, and Yogi teas, all of which are organic. 

Next time you are in for a cup of coffee or tea; don’t forget to keep an eye on how you're doing in the Coffee Club. If you are a Member, every time you purchase a cup of coffee, it is added to your Coffee Club total. If you purchase ten cups of coffee, you’ll receive a free large coffee. Not a Member? Grab a Coffee Club Card from our coffee station and asked to have it punched each time to go through the register. 

Lastly, drink up and feel good about the cup your coffee is in because our coffee cups are compostable!
