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.

  • We had our wedding here in June and it was truly the most magical day! The setting at the Market at Grelen is so stunning. From the beautiful natural backdrop during our Berry Field ceremony to dancing the night away at our reception under the stars in the clear top tent, allowed us to have the most perfect day. There are so many beautiful spots for pictures and we loved taking photos at Bloomfield during Golden Hour. Another wonderful benefit of having a wedding here is being able to use any of Grelen's plants and flowers throughout the wedding day. Everyone has commented on how beautiful our wedding location was and many asked us how we found such a perfect location. The event staff was so wonderful to work with. Tess and Emmie were responsive and helpful during the wedding planning process with our many questions. It is very evident that they are passionate about their work and our whole day ran so efficiently. We could not have asked for a more beautiful spot to have our wedding day and will forever hold onto our amazing memories made here at The Market at Grelen!
  • Beautiful and expansive garden shop, pick your own berries, and trails. Great sandwiches, homemade ice cream, and drinks that you can either eat on the gorgeous patio or take as a picnic on the trails. They have crafted quite a destination out here and are really paying attention to all the little details.
