What Vermont.com Says...

Stopped in to check out the newly rebuilt and recently re-opened J.J. Hapgood General Store in Peru.

WOW! The place is magnificent - beautiful and well laid out. (The former restaurateur in me gets excited about things like good traffic flow!) Good food also excites me and there was plenty. A cast iron skillet loaded with Braised Short Ribs was on display. Guess what I had for dinner! Even after they sat in my car for an hour and I re-heated them at home they were moist & tender - delicious. The short ribs  had been ‘braised’ with sweet potatoes, beets, prunes, carrots, parsnips et. al. - Heaven.

For the vegetarians in the family we tried a Caesar Salad with a zesty lemony dressing and an Organic Arugula/Kale Salad with sweet potatoes, apple slices, garbanzo beans, and delightfully crunchy candied walnuts.

Check with Juliette for specific details when you visit - and trust me, I'll be going back, soon.

Along with a great selection of foods prepared on premises, they have an interesting selection of quality and unusual grocery items, cheeses, beers, and other beverages. While there, I had a taste of t Kombucha by Aqua Vitea and I brought home a bottle of MammaChia - a Blackberry Hibiscus Vitality Beverage. Also, I couldn't resist their homemade oatmeal cranberry chocolate cookies & a Double Chocolate Mocha Whoopie Pie from The Flour Girl Bakeshop in West Rupert, VT.

Between the healthy drinks (they also have Vermont craft beers on tap!), great food, and excitement of a new place - Peru, VT has never looked so vital!

J.J. Hapgood General Store is open from 7am - 7pm seven days a week. Stop in, pick up some great food (or eat it there) and say "hi" to the owners - Juliette & Tim Britton.
