Wilfred's Wonderland - Masset
Wilfred's carving shed is located in a veritable hobbit-land, with little statues punctuating every turn in the garden, and all window frames, banisters, gable-ends etc. carved out. The carving shed is carpeted with shavings and pungent with the smell of cedar and oil. You can spend time chatting and sniffing and caressing the bowls and spoons, and admiring the various items, all of which are obviously hand-carved and whimsically lopsided and off-centre, adding to their beauty and value. A fairy-tale shopping experience seldom found elsewhere.
Green Gaia in Masset carries bulk organic foods and produce, and often makes organic soups for lunch. Mennonites sell their produce ( some of it organic) locally in Masset every Friday noon, and in some stores. Dom's organic garden sells produce, goats milk, and eggs on Sangan Drive. Local stores carry some organic foods.
