Take a day trip to Fair Grove for living history and antique hunting.
By Jamie Thomas
38 S. Main St., Fair Grove
Wommack Mill is home to the Fair Grove Historical and Preservation Society, which first developed out of a project to restore the mill itself. If you want to experience a piece of living history, you can find it here. If you’re looking for somewhere uniquely rustic for an event space, the mill is also available to rent.
Old Mill Antique and Flea Market
99 S. Main St., Fair Grove
What’s a day trip without a little antiquing? Old Mill Antique and Flea Market is packed with potential finds, including antiques and collectibles, glassware, kitchenware and quilts. It’s a great place to dig around and see what you can discover. The store is open Monday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.
Time Travel Cafe
82 S. Main St., Fair Grove
Grab lunch at a classic American diner. The Time Travel Cafe is open Wednesdays from 4 to 8 p.m., and Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. and serves juicy burgers, Rueben sandwiches, pork shoulder sandwiches and more.
Somewhere in Time
92 S. Main St., Fair Grove
If you’re down for more antiquing, you’re in luck. Across the street from Old Mill Antique and Flea Market is Somewhere In Time, where you can find a similarly wide and somewhat wild selection of eclectic antiques. You’ll also find vintage clothes, bath products and the chance to sip some local wine while you shop.
Fair Grove Farmers’ Market
38 S. Main St., Fair Grove
Through spring until October, you can catch the Fair Grove Farmers Market at the Wommack Mill. Pick up some farm-fresh produce or handmade goodies from local vendors under the shade of a pavilion every Wednesday from 3 to 6:30 p.m. That means you can soak up some local history while also shopping local.
