Gardner Village in West Jordan, Utah contains the outlines of the once bustling early Utah pioneer mill industry and history. What remains today is a cluster of locally-owned retail specialty shops located in restored cabins, houses and buildings nestled adjacent to the Gardner Mill. Now listed on the National Historic Register, the old flour mill is home to Archibald's Restaurant and CF Home. Spend the afternoon or day milling around this shopping, dining and historic experience that's unique to Utah.

Gardener Village offers a charming atmosphere with a lovely variety of shops for unique gifts, home decor and more. The fact that it used to be a polygamist home is captured in the Archibald restaurant, where each booth in the rotunda area is named for one of Archibald Gardner's 13 wives. I love sampling different kinds of fudge at the... More

Nice shopping area surrounding a small pond area. Peaceful and quiet. We went specifically to the Farmers Market which has a great blend of local businesses. There is a good diversity of retail, produce, service and food booths and also live entertainment. I hope it gets a little bigger as my only "complaint" is it is kind of small.

A collection of historic buildings relocated to a quiet, out-of-the-way site between West Jordan and Midvale, converted into shops which range from children's stores to housewares and furnishings and all kinds of gift shops. Seasonal "festivals" include decorations and fun for the whole family. October and December are definitely the funnest times. Pony rides for the kids. The Gathering Place... More

What a great place to just browses and relax anytime of the year. I especially like it for Christmas and Halloween, but it fun for the whole family anytime of year. Shops are small and the food it good. Covenant to visit from downtown Salt Lake City by tracks or I15.

Do not expect to find a lot of fresh produce, but many types of Baked / food products, natural soaps, homemade bread etc. Loved the shop with the custom statues, and hand painted Santa's from around the...

They have a wonderful local yarn shop for knitters, and just about anything anyone would want to buy. Lots of handmade items to choose from too. At Christmas time the grounds are covered... More
