A witch recipe book is full of surprises. Sometimes it’s eye of newt and tail of tadpole...

WitchFest 2019

Other times... well... the story turns a bit sweeter, more savory, and absolutely satisfying to we mere mortals. Believe it or not, witches can whip up concoctions made of sugar, spice, and all the things NICE! Let's explore that more appetizing side of the witch recipe book with this look at some seriously satisfying spells available now at Gardner Village during WitchFest 2019.

Gardner Village

It's a WitchFest Feast!

From the added convenience of outdoor food tents and scrumptious seasonal delights to fall comfort food, entertaining shows, and THE BEST in Halloween candy, Gardner Village is one mouthwatering scene. 

Naborhood Bakery and Cafe

This popular Village spot is known for its baked goods. And the delicious enchantment of it all only increases when the witches land and work their magic. Here are just a few of the items they've added to the menu: 


Key Lime & Snickers Tarts

You're sure to snicker at these bitty pies, which come served with a side of spider! Eep!

Pumpkin Eclairs

Pumpkin spice is always nice. But, in eclair form? Seems almost too good to be true.

Witches Night Out & Wee Witches Weekend Food Tents

Gardner Village knows the popular witchy weekends can sometimes create broomstick jams at its eateries. It’s why things are being taken to the streets this year with extra food service. You’ll find an outdoor food tent near center court, which is serving up a special Naborhood Bakery menu of eats. Now you can grab, go, and get on with the witch show!

Pumpkin Spice Butter

Here’s a dining souvenir you’ll want to get while you can—Pumpkin Spice Butter. Through the end of October, Archibald’s Restaurant and Naborhood Bakery and Cafe diners will receive rolls tricked out with this yummy treat (with select orders). You’ll also find this light, creamy spread (which happens to be co-owner Joe Long’s favorite) available for purchase at Naborhood Bakery and Cafe.  Pick up a jar (or 10!) today.

I’ll leave you with a little witchy wisdom: It’s considered good luck to enjoy every indulgence that happens to cross your path this season. After all, those witches and their bags of tricks and treats will be gone before you know it. “Bone” appetite!
