Grotto Gardens Country Market
Location: Maple Creek, SK
Grotto Gardens is a family operated Saskatoon berry orchard. Over the past 5 years, owners Dan and Dana have grown Grotto Gardens into a value added country bakery with the processing of the berries onsite. The log barn gives visitors the opportunity to explore unique gifts, while enjoying the comforting aroma of home baked pies and freshly brewed coffee.
The log building provides a nostalgic atmosphere to relax indoors while having a piece of Saskatoon pie or sit outside on one of the covered decks that wrap around the log barn and enjoy an ice cream cone or a saskatoon milkshake.
You will be surrounded by the colourful perennial gardens, hanging baskets of beautiful flowers and sounds of the water fountains. Create a family memory; take a stroll and have a laugh while viewing “Leo’s Goat Walk”, or take a family picture in our horse carriage. Come join us for some farm food and family fun!

Lunches and the Country Bakery
Shop local Saskatchewan flavours. Our market changes as the seasons do. Shop for fresh Saskatoon berries when harvested at the end of July and enjoy our daily homemade preserves, pies and bakery treats. We use our fresh fruit grown in the field to make our pies, muffins, cakes and other treats. Stop and enjoy an ice cream cone or milkshake while you relax at our log barn.
We realize you may be travelling from afar or camping on a holiday, so in addition to our fresh baked treats we offer premade and frozen pies.
NEW in 2019 we also added light lunches to our menu offerings. Enjoy a glass of Saskatoon Lemonade, a salad, wrap or burger, and our infamous garlic fries! Our porch and dining interior are both licensed so you can also enjoy a glass of beer or Cypress Hills Winery Wine on our flower-filled porch!

Saskatchewan’s First Goat Walk
Come visit Saskatchewan’s first goat-walk. All members of your family will enjoy watching our goats climb across our ramps, planks and rooftops. There is also an opportunity to feed the animals via a rope and pulley that delights our goats and encourages them to climb higher.
The kids will enjoy our friendly family pets; our black lab “Bones” and our chocolate lab “Tank”. They can also take an opportunity to visit the hen house and feed our colourful chattering chickens, see the glittering display of our peacocks, hear the “hee haw” of our donkeys, or view the adorableness of our Baby Doll Sheep.
