#10 – Famers’ Markets & Farm Stands

arcata-farmer's-marketA coastal climate and long growing season help Humboldt County farmers produce a bountiful crop each year. At local farmers’ markets, you’ll find everything from fruits and vegetables to fresh flowers and artwork. The larger markets often have live music, artists and other vendors. At all of the local markets, you’ll find a selection of local and organic produce, honey and jams, live plants and cut flowers. If you prefer a more first-hand look into the workings of local farms, many of them welcome visitors and have stands on the grounds where you can peruse, sample and buy the freshest of the fresh or pick your own flowers. Stop by a seasonal farmers’ market or farm stand and fill a bag with nature’s bounty.

#54 – Blue Ox Millworks & Historic Park

Blue-Ox-MillworksBlue Ox Millworks manufactures authentic Victorian-style architectural millwork using antique equipment ranging from the mid 1800s to the early 1900s and traditional woodworking techniques from that era. They produce custom doors, windows, turnings and Victorian gingerbread and ship it nationwide. Their tooling includes the largest collection of operating Barnes Brothers Equipment Company human-powered tools in the world. Over the past 39 years the craftsmen at Blue Ox have produced woodwork for the renovation of many historic buildings including governors’ mansions, national park visitor centers, saloons, historic cathedrals and hundreds of private historic homes, as well as new ones.

The Millworks offers guided tours, but you can also tour at your own pace and observe the woodworkers in action. While there you can enjoy learning about America’s frontier past by visiting the historic logging camp, the blacksmith shop, ceramics studio, letterpress print shop, apothecary and boatworks. Learn how to use local clays, how to create experimental glazes utilizing formulas from as far back as the 1400s and how to make stains and varnishes from natural elements. A gift store is available featuring items made by the high school students of Blue Ox Community School, an alternative school that operates on the premises.

Self-guided tours can be taken Monday through Friday from 9am to 5pm, and from April to November also on Saturdays from 9am until 4pm. Workshops and guided group tours are also available.
