Overview

This place is amazing with an Artisan Market and Welcome Centre. Unique shopping from artisans across Perth County.It has a vast amount of regional tourism information and the staff are helpful and knowleadgable.The landscaping outside is beautiful a very relaxing and a great place to eat your organic ice cream and relax in Rural South Western Ontario. This is definitly the first stop to make when entering into Perth County and wanting information on Stratford, St Marys, Millbank and many of the surrounding areas.

The welcome centre has lots of info available about the local area. There are some nice and unique items available at the market, but it is quite small. So it's worth stopping if you're passing by, but not a destination in itself. By the way,...More

I was shocked when I walked through the door of this former barn to find a beautiful, country style store! What a wonderful idea to make a welcome centre that doesn't only provide all of the information a person could ever need when visiting Perth...More
