L ocal businesses spread out through charming buildings and bountiful gardens are the hallmarks of The Barnyard Shopping Village, which opened in Carmel in 1976. On Saturday, November 12, from 2-5pm, a huge cake will be the centerpiece of a celebra- tion open to the public, who are invited to share historical photos as part of a retrospec- tive. Toasts will be made with champagne and sparkling cider. Formerly the Hatton Dairy, the complex once housed the legendar y Thunderbird Bookshop, and a well underneath Robata Sushi Grill's bar supplies all the water to the gardens. The landmark windmill at the top of the shopping village used to be powered by the well, and the shaft went through the former restaurant in Robata's location. "All the merchants are family owned and operated," says General Manager Marilyn Schultz. "We've really brought the gardens back to life and we are holding weddings here and concert series." The Barnyard is also the site of the 19th annual Ferrari event during Classic Car Week on Saturday, August 20th from 4-8pm. "The primary beneficiary is the Arts Council of Monterey," Schultz says. "We will have artists painting different cars during the event." Events continue year round, and more infor- mation can be found online.
