Fodor's Review

With a hippie vibe, the kid-friendly Fantastic Umbrella Factory has five rustic shops built around a wild garden. For sale are hardy, unusual daylilies and other plants, interesting jewelry, vintage eyewear, soy candles, creative pottery, blown glass, penny candy, and incense. In the South County Artisans Loft, you can meet local artists and peruse their wares in a renovated second-floor barn space. For 50¢ you can scoop a cone full of seeds to feed the fenced-in emus, guinea hens, and ducks. There is also the BYOB Small Axe Cafe serving organic foods.
