First, make sure you are hungry because you will find a collection of the most delicious "street food" style vendors and you will want to try EVERYTHING (I have to maintain a gluten free diet and I was thrilled at all of the options!). Second,...More

Great to visit, the atmosphere is excellent, the shopping is cool, and the food is excellent. Make sure you include lunch in your visit! Also explore the surrounding streets for more cool shops while your in Woodstock.

We came to the Old Biscuit Mill because we had a lunch reservation at The Pot Luck Club. Both before and after our meal we meandered through the many shops and had a look. Clothing, art work, alcohol and caffeine can all be found here....More
