Shelburne Museum opening a local-vendor food court

The Skinny Pancake, which started in the summer of 2003 as a crêpe cart on Burlington, VT's' Church Street, is about to open its ninth location as part of a food court grouping at the sprawling Shelburne Museum.

The business is owned by brothers Benjy and Jonny Adler. They will be joining a local lineup to include a kiosk serving Skinny Pancake crêpes, a Chubby Muffin snack shack offering burgers, hot dogs and panini, and a creemee stand.

The seasonal business will complement Skinny Pancake venues at Sugarbush Resort and Stowe Mountain Resort. The food court will begin in soft-opening mode later this week and will be fully operational by early July. It will run through October 31, then close before returning for the full 2018 tourist season begining May 1.

The Shelburne Museum, founded in 1947, is a collection of 39 distinct structures on 45 acres, serving as home to an eclectic array of American folk art, French Impressionist paintings, historic New England architecture, duck decoys, circus animals, and dolls. The grounds also contain extensive gardens and a number of historic buildings moved from other communities -- houses, barns, a meeting house, a one-room schoolhouse, a lighthouse, a jail, a general store, a covered bridge, and the 220-foot steamboat Ticonderoga -- at the behest of museum founder Electra Havemeyer Webb.
