The Sugar Tree and The Sugar Tree Cottage

"Would you like an adventure now, or shall we have our tea first?"

welcome  to the Sugar Tree &  Sugar Tree Cottage

The Sugar Tree is best known as a wandering art gallery and fresh market; offering locally sourced foods; hand blended teas, natural fiber arts, Maine Artisan wooden rolling pins, bread boards, & spoons; along with a small selection of cooking & gardening books.  We can be found at various Maine community events throughout the year. (be sure to check out our blog or follow us on facebook for updates)
In season, however, you may plan to visit the Sugar Tree Cottage, located nearby the Lakewood Theater in Madison.  The cottage is open by invitation or appointment only, and offers tea tastings, classes, and personal private shopping experiences. Look for our announcements for "Tea Tasting Tuesdays" and other events throughout the summer, including featured artists showings, by joining the Sugar Tree Cottage facebook group 

Who We Are

Our little family finds living in the Maine woods to be a place of peace, art, creating, growing, and much inspiration. 


 For a while, the Sugar Tree was a traveling vegetarian food cafe, but the idea for what it would become started many years before. Growing fresh herbs for teas at  Mothers Moon,., and berries, apples, and veggies from my garden or from local farms for my Kids' Gardening and Kids' Kitchen Programs, Shaping wooden bread boards, spoons, and rolling pins came soon after, include artsy projects created within my Storyteller Moon experiences., and you have all the elements of what was The Sugar Tree Cafe!  We don't run the cafe anymore, but the rest remains.  Most of the goods for sale have been created by myself, or by my family, but some are selectively chosen natural and/or fairly traded products from fellow small businesses.
