Attraction details
Reviewed August 2, 2014

Came upon this store while in the area. It was very nostalgic and loved shopping here. They also have some Collectibles I their store. Old fashion candy in half of the building. Took me down memory lane. Bought a few items to share with my grown children to bring back some great memories and to introduce to a new generation (my granddaughter). When I come back to this area in November I will be sure to stop here again.

In the 60's my brothers and I would ride our bikes from Saxonville to the Wayside Country Store to buy candy. It has a great candy store in it. I had all but forgotten the experience until last week when I came back for a visit and was driving around. All these memories came flooding back. It is a nice place to stop and browse. Truly a blast from the past.

The Wayside Country Store is reputed to be one of the oldest continually operating stores in the country. It is defiantly a place to stop in this area. Next to it is Stephen Anthony’s restaurant, a great place to eat. Nearby is a historic area with the Wayside Inn dating from the revolutionary war and the subject of Longfellow’s poem” Stopping by the wayside”. Also the school house from “Mary had a little lamb”, an operating gristmill and the picturesque Mary Martha Chapel are close by on the same street.

Full of collectibles and souveniers. Lots of old photos of Marlborough, too. Also connected to a fantastic candy store so its worth the trip to come and browse and see what strikes your fancy!

Its truly a country store very much like travelling back in history and then finding just the right thing for your house or a gift. What they sell sparks memories of things that are part of your life and seems to convey that feeling so well. Even the special candy and fudge they sell fits that description. Take in the store, browse slowly and its hard to leave w/o finding something beautiful, meaningful and perfect to enjoy for years.
