An eclectic boutique that showcases a continually rotating stock of stylish items and artifacts to outfit homes and gardens, The Potter’s Garden also treats patrons to complimentary gift wrapping with any purchase. Shoppers can pick up Wind & Willow cheeseball mixes ($3.99+) to whip up in case a child's cherished baseball goes over the fence, or they can store a selection of hot dips and salsas for spontaneous get-togethers ($3.99+). Fire pots in an array of sizes ($13.99–$100+) safely contain and cradle flames on an outdoor patio, and a palatial birdhouse ($14.99+) extends a respectable gesture of goodwill toward humankind’s feathered friends. A soy candle can set the mood for a dinner party, imbue a room with a pleasant scent, or distract a visiting fire-breathing dragon while you call 911.

During spring at Jones Orchard, families gather to bound through the territory’s rows of fruit, peeling back leaves to get at the ripest morsels hidden deep within the thicket. Since growing their first peaches more than seven decades ago, the Jones family continues to ripen juicy varieties of peaches, strawberries, and other fruit on their 600-acre farm, eschewing long-distance produce shipping for local distribution, mostly available at farmer’s markets and during the orchard’s pick-your-own fruit season. Inviting families to pick fruit together is one of many ways the Jones family lures visitors to their orchard seasonally—come autumn, the farmers transform the fields into a vast corn maze. Visitors not content to wander the idyllic grounds can enjoy the orchard’s bounty at the Country Café, where matriarch Juanita Jones flavors her fresh pies and preserves with fresh-plucked fruits.
