Fodor's Review

With a hippie vibe, the kid- and first date–friendly Fantastic Umbrella Factory contains five rustic shops built around a wild garden and bamboo forest. Hardy, unusual daylilies and other plants are for sale, along with interesting clothing and jewelry, vintage eyewear, soy candles, creative pottery, blown glass, penny candy, and incense. In the South County Artisans Loft, a renovated second-floor barn space, you can meet local fine and craft artists and peruse their wares. For 50¢ you can scoop a cone full of seeds to feed the fenced-in emus, guinea hens, and ducks. The Small Axe Cafe (BYOB) serves an organic menu.
