Quailcrest Farm Herb Fair

The girls (my mom, sister-n-law and her mom) and I drove down to Wooster this past Saturday for Quailcrest Farm's Fall Herb Fair. This is an annual tradition for us and one that we look forward to every year. The folks at Quailcrest have amazing gardens displaying herbs, perennials and much more. Their greenhouse is full of beautiful plants to purchase and their staff is knowledgable and eager to answer questions and give gardening advice. Garden accessories and gifts are featured in the gift shop.

Each fall they host an herb fair the Saturday following Labor Day, featuring over 70 artisans set up among the gardens. Admission is $2 per car, which is donated to the local boy scout troup. This year didn't disappoint with artisans displaying items including jewelry, stoneware, ironwork and much much more! After of morning of shopping and browsing the gardens, we enjoyed lunch provided by the local church.

Glorious mums in a rainbow of colors filled their greenhouses!

This year I had the pleasure of meeting Cindy of Simple Elements Design. Cindy is a fellow Cleveland Handmade team member and her display was natural, earthy and a perfect backdrop for her beautiful jewelry.

What a beautiful way to spend the day!
