The Growing Grounds is another of my favorites. It's a tiny garden outlet with lots of charm.
This little store is actually part of something much larger. It is the outlet store for Growing Grounds Farms, a wholesale grower that supplies plants to many local nurseries and participates in an adult vocational program for a mental health program offering paid positions to people with an open case with the counties mental health department. They strive to empower their employees and teach them new skills.
Through the Growing Grounds Outlet store and farm, they provide the area with beautiful plants, garden supplies and (more importantly), vocation and socialization opportunities for people with mental illness.
