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 pick-your-own 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!!
