Information

Putney radiates the treasured spirit of Vermont’s unspoiled villages. Minutes north of Brattleboro and readily accessible from I-91, our eclectic shops, a Spinnery, berry and apple orchards, a winery and fine eateries, and maple sugar houses will be sure to delight you. Shop in the village center or witness magic created in artisan studios. Intimate music venues, a multi-use performance space and a puppetry theater add to the fun and creative diversity. Stay, breathe deeply, and meander Putney’s back roads leading to berry picking, swimming holes, hiking, biking, and skiing trails. Come once to Putney and you’ll find yourself coming back again and again.

Innovative schools have flourished here, the arts have found a home here; our artisans produce some of Vermont’s most beautiful crafts. Sacketts Brook (with it’s stone arch bridge), once turned a dozen water wheels on its boisterous descent to the Connecticut River,  flows right through the heart of the village where now you’ll find a small and eclectic collection of shops, restaurants, the Putney General store, Basketville, the Putney COOP and more.

We invite you to explore this site with links to many of our local crafts people, the Putney Craft Tour, the Local Food / local farm directory and more.
