Create an itinerary including The Market at Grelen
Set on a 600-acre tree nursery, The Market at Grelen is a gem. From the moment you drive down the tree-lined entrance and start to glimpse the tree rows set on the contour of the land, you will feel as if you’ve been transported to Italy. As your eyes wander from the surrounding gardens to the expansive views of the nursery to the Blue Ridge Mountains in the distance, you will know that you’ve arrived at a magical destination full of charm, simplicity and casual elegance. The Grelen experience is a multifaceted one and boasts a casual cafe, garden shop, event venue (weddings!), free hiking trails and a pyo farm (berries, peaches and apples). Check out their websites for details and an up-to-date calendar. The shop: www.themarketatgrelencom. Events: www.eventsatgrelen.com. Grelen also own and manages Spotswood Lodge (www.spotswoodlodge.com) which is a beautiful farm rental. The Market at Grelen is closed from Dec. 24 - Feb. 28 for the season. We re-open for the spring on March 1!!

  • Absolutely gorgeous settling. Staff was excellent, and the food was delicious. Our cousins from San Diego are gardeners and were very impressed by nursery and gift shop.

  • Beautiful place, stunning setting with far reaching views of rows of plants and trees. Very nice market with good selections of items one would find in a high end boutique. A nice cafe to order a meal and ability to sit any where outside or in the greenhouse area among plants. Also, they serve homemade ice cream! Welcoming and extremely friendly staff. The staff treats visitors as if you're an old friend that they've known for years. Reasonable prices on plants and pots. Stopping here made for a very enjoyable morning, even in the rain!
  • Beautiful, unique spot in Central VA! We had great food and drinks while enjoying the nursery landscape all around. Very friendly service as well. I highly recommend if you are able to take a stroll on the various trails that are on the property. Worth the time to enjoy the carefully manicured nursery.
