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.

One of those great places to wander in the evening - lots of wonderful, unique shops to wander through. During the holidays (particularly Halloween and Christmas) there are frequent events. Be sure to visit Archibalds for a nice meal and stop off at either the candy store or the bakery for a nice treat. On Saturdays during the nicer months,... More

There are lots of reasons to go to Gardner Village! Archibald's Restaurant is a great place for lunch or dinner. There are so many great shops - some of my personal favorites are Down to Earth, The Quilt Shop, Country Furniture, & Celebrations.

OK, so why a "Very good" rating and then I say I hated it? The village was not the problem, I was the problem. I am a middle aged guy that visited with three other middle aged folks. The ladies enjoyed shopping. The village was not the right place for me though, it is designed for 20-something LDS mothers with... More

We went there for the pony ride, straight and simple, but our family also enjoyed feeding the ducks at the pond. Sure, there were tons of witches, a little farmer's market, and booths for everything from soap to windows, from salsa to knitted hats, but the kids were there for the animals. Gardner Village decorates the place for every season.... More

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
