The very popular Cedar Farmers Market beside the Crow and Gate opens this  Sunday,  just in time for Mother’s Day. Get there early for the fresh farm products.

Adding to the charm  of the tour, the meandering country roads, the cedars, the smell of sea, quaint beaches and spring air is the artists.

JoVic Pottery is right across the road from the Page Point Inn.

Hazelwood Herb Farm has a tremendous array of herbs and farm-made culinary products.

Fredrich’s Honey is so fresh you can smell the flowers. This fully-operational apiary produces and sells honey and bee products.

Fresh cranberries, farm tours and more than 30 culinary treats are available at Yellow Point Cranberries.

Bob Belhouse creates digital photography.

Honeysuckle Gift Cottage is a unique combination of English country garden and art nouveau.

Award-winning artist Claudia Lohmann’s distinctive paintings are worth the experience. Intricate and elaborate designs are featured on canvas, as well as up-cycled pieces.

Just across the road, you will find Barton & Leier Gallery, well known for original art and a unique line of giftware, as well as a great garden.

Well worth the drive, discover Goatwillow Studio Gift Shop, which offers something unique with a touch of humour and charm.

The Doll House Gift Shop has been on the tour since the very first day, creating teddies, dolls, children’s clothing and more.

There are some incredible Bed and Breakfasts and remarkable restaurants on the tour. Try the Page Point Inn right on the water on Ladysmith Harbour, the Mahle House and the Cedar Plank, or drop in for refreshments at the Crow and Gate Pub or the Wheatsheaf Pub.
