At the crossroads of the Green Mountains and Lake Champlain, Essex is Vermont’s second most populous community. The town, which includes the Village of Essex Junction, is known for its convenient location, abundant recreational opportunities and safe, walkable neighborhoods.

Essex Junction Sign

In the center of it all lies Five Corners – an intersection of roads and the heart of Essex Junction. This bustling area features many shops, restaurants and community services. In the summer, residents enjoy food and music at the weekly 5 Corners Farmer’s Market and the 4th of July parade is always a big hit with kids.
