One of my favorite places to go shopping in the area is the Sawyer Garden Center, which is located next door to Greenbush Brewery in Sawyer, MI. Despite the fact that I don’t like to garden, I greatly enjoy wandering the aisles at the Sawyer Garden Center.

The name the “Sawyer Garden  Center” is a bit misleading. Yes, it serves as a garden center. It has a big greenhouse filled with awesome house plants; It has rows of Christmas trees in the winter and outdoor plants in the summer. But, it also has kitchen items, home goods, candles, bath products, clothing, a food market, and a pretty great liquor and wine section.

There are typically lots of food samples. Anywhere with food samples gets a lot of points in my book (like Costco and Whole Foods). Last time I was a the market, I sampled plum pudding, cookies, cheese, punch and bruscetta…not to mention wine…they have free wine tasting.

It’s a great place to find a unique gift; there’s something for everyone. If you’re spending a weekend near the Lake, the food market sells a bunch of unique snacks for the beach. Next time you plan to get a pint at Greenbush or enjoy dinner at Fitzgerald’s, stop at the Sawyer Garden Market for some shopping fun.
