Recently voted as the Best Bakery in West Virginia by the Best of WV Awards in WVLiving magazine, the Wardensville Garden Market is home to fresh, made-from-scratch baked goods that include their famous giant cinnamon rolls, pepperoni rolls, bread, pies, cookies and much more. Some new holiday items include Eggnog Custard Pie, Orange Glazed Cinnamon Rolls, and Braided Challah Loaves! 
We offer Holiday Pre-Orders to help make your festive season more manageable but just as homemade. Hop online to order goodies or shop in-store to place your dinner and dessert orders.

Whether searching for the perfect Christmas tree to take to your cabin retreat or just strolling through the gorgeous evergreens with red bows and lights and your camera, the Wardnesville Garden Market’s outdoor winter wonderland is the perfect place! We even have special hand-decorated wreaths made by our youth employees known as Junior Crew. While on your stroll, add a cup of freshly made Hot Cocoa or our new Eggnog Cold Brew for a bit of sweetness.

In case you haven’t heard, Wardensville is also home to the new Glass Blowing studio Dakota Glass! Inspired by the rich history of glass blowing in Appalachia, this amazing hot shop works with Junior Crew, passing on the craft while creating beautiful pieces of glass. Stop by during their weekend demo hours Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 3pm to watch the magic live. Shop for Dakota Glass handcrafted Christmas Ornaments at the Wardensville Garden Market. These make wonderful heirloom gifts or perfect additions to your own tree!

If all of that wasn’t enticing enough, know that every purchase made at the Wardensville Garden Market and Dakota Glass supports a great cause. As part of the Farms Work Wonder’s family of enterprises’, these brands are on a mission to inspire young people in Appalachia to thrive by providing life-enriching experiences and discovery opportunities to help them realize their dreams. This program also offers scholarships, internships, and employment opportunities and has awarded over 180,000 dollars in scholarships since 2017!

While you’re in Wardensville, the Lost River Trading Post is another great stop in this quaint little town. This shop contains artisanal items from wines, art, cards, antiques, fresh coffee, and more! Get lost browsing this hidden gem for a while, and don’t forget to take a Cowfie with iconic Cowlamity Jane before you leave.

At the end of Main Street, you can’t miss a trip to Word Play where you can explore a new best-selling book, a fun game or a unique kit for the kids to explore. You can find a gift for anyone on the list here, and yourself, too!
