SMITTY’S CHESTER MARKET in Chester, VT
Garrison, owner of Smitty’s Chester Market, another family store, expressed his commitment to serving the community stating, “In a lot of ways we’re the town center. It’s where everyone in town goes. Everyone comes here to talk and you can always count on running into someone while grocery shopping… One of the most important parts of what we do is being here for the community.”
During the flooding over the summer of 2023, they lost power but stayed open with a skeletal crew to provide groceries and essential items. Without power, credit card machines weren’t working but they did not let that become a barrier as they created IOU’s for people to return when power was restored to the area. Garrison shares, “The heart of what we do and the heart of our business hasn’t changed. We are open and here to serve the community.”
Smitty’s Chester Market is a full service grocery store that offers a wide variety of options. You’ll find delicious hot meals, hand-crafted sandwiches, local options sourced from nearby farms, grocery items, snacks and a fine selection of beverages, specially curated for each season. Don’t miss it!
