When you think about creating your perfect outdoor space, you may immediately think about shopping at a larger greenhouse or big box store. Farmers’ markets are a great place to find plants and unique products that are sure to help spruce up your yard.
At the Callingwood Farmers’ Market, we have a number of vendors who offer locally grown or handcrafted outdoor products. Wayne Hryniw from Wayne’s Cedarworks handcrafts spectacular patio and lawn wood furniture including tete-a-tetes, gliders, swings, chairs and tables to make your patio and fire pit settings complete. Each piece is created using Western Red Cedar and is comfortable and very durable.
If you’re a bird lover, Joe Marchand of Joe’s Woodcrafts builds charming bird houses, bird feeders, squirrel feeders and even bat houses!
Of course, plants and floral arrangements are sure to make any yard beautiful. Visit St. Albert Greenhouses or Erdmann’s Gardens & Greenhouses next time you’re at the market and they’ll be able to advise you on the best choices of potted flowers and garden plants for your yard. They’ve got gorgeous pansies, geraniums, petunias and so much more!
If you really want to have a yard that stands out on the block, you must stop by Creative Outlet Art Studio. In addition to unique, hand painted seasonal lawn decorations (Halloween and Christmas), they also design and craft sports themed art for your lawn. You can find everything from dance tosoccer to swimming! Or visit Jeff Mehlenbacher who creates unique chainsaw wood carvings of wildlife including bears, owls, birds, as well as stools and tables. They are truly incredible works of art!
These vendors, and so many more, offer delightful, locally grown or handmade products for your yard and patio. Be sure to stop the Callingwood Farmers’ Market to see what you can find!
