This is a good store to pick up any outdoor equipment or clothing you forgot to pack. Or like me, like to shop local outdoor stores to see the variety from where I live. I have to say I was a little disappointed in their selection on clothing, specifically men's outdoor pants. They only had one brand, one kind of zip-off leg style paints. Not much of a selection with that but plenty of shorts.
What to buy: They do have some sales and deals. I found it to have a bigger selection overall than the other outdoor store in town.
Another standout is the staff. Extremely helpful with local information and very friendly.
What to pay: On average with typical outdoor adventure stores
The last time I was in Springdale, there was no food store. We had to drive all the way to Hurricane to shop for food supplies. This is a small market but has everything you need while staying in Springdale or camping in Zion National Park.
They have fresh fruit and vegetables as well as a deli counter.
What to buy: A very good deli counter. We became friendly with a worker, Braden who was very helpful giving us all kinds of local info on good view points and trail outside the park.
What to pay: Most items were on average as other food stores. The frozen hamburger patties were much higher than average. It was cheaper to buy fresh ground beef and make our own hamburgers.
The gallery has been around a long time. I bought a great cup for tea/coffee here 7 years ago and it is still one of my favorite. They have many one of a kind mugs and pottery from local artist. They have a big selection and some wonderfully done pottery
What to buy: any variety of the artful mugs. Nothing like a mug designed by one of the local artist.
They will ship and have a great website.
What to pay: It is expensive here. An average size coffee mug is about $24 - $48!
There are several souvenir/gift shops along Zion Park Boulevard in Springdale. The one I like the best in called "Indian Village". They have a wide variety of items there and the staff is friendly. Ther is also a shop with all kinds of rocks and minerals on the other side of the street.
Although, I'm not much of a shopper I do enjoy stopping here once in awhile. My wife and her friends have all bought pottery for gifts and their own homes, here. The prices seem to be quite fair, considering your in a tourist town.
This gallery is home to an amazing display of Lyman Whitaker's wind sculptures. I was so inspired, a sculpture was one of first things I bought when we moved to the area.
A friend of mine, Tim Campbell, opened this gallery last Fall and it was an immediate success. Tim has gotten a lot of local artists as well as a few regional artists for his gallery. You'll find a good selection of pottery, photography, jewelry , paintings and much more. There are a lot of galleries and artists in Springdale but DeZion really stands out.
By the way, Tim was raised in the area and knows as much about the lore and history as anyone.
Need an "off the beaten path" suggestion? Just ask Tim, he's given me some great advice.
