In a Nutshell

At market of local merchants, shoppers trade gift certificates for café fare, classic candy & Christmas trees & decorations or garden wares

The Fine Print

Promotional value expires Apr 1, 2012. Amount paid never expires. Limit 1 per person. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane-wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get a gift certificate package to The Ploughshare Market (a $30 total value). The package includes the following:

  • One $10 gift certificate to Georgie’s Cafe
  • One $10 gift certificate to Urban Oasis Garden Centre
  • One $10 gift certificate to Sweetest Things Candy Shop

The Ploughshare Market comprises an assemblage of boutiques where local merchants peddle wares ranging from fresh baked goods to imported candies. Browsers can fuel shopping-cart races by sampling the fare at Georgie’s Cafe, best known for its soups ($4.25 for a large bowl) and muffins ($2.50 each). Hosting a Christmas Arts & Craft Fair, Urban Oasis Garden Centre transforms its gift shop into a gallery for local artisans, complemented by seasonal plant stock including five- to seven-foot douglas fir Christmas trees ($39.99 each) and 4-inch perennials ($3.99 each). After perusing horticultural adornments, shoppers can wander into Sweetest Things Candy Shop to bag classic sweets and oompa-loompa-crafted confections from all over North America and Great Britain ($1.95–$8.95/bag).

Trees are hand-picked and delivered twice weekly, it is best to call ahead a few days in advance to ensure availability.

Well done on your large selection of candy and different toys. I also liked how you put baskets together for Easter. I will spread the word about how great you are.
