The market at Grelen has it all. Leslie's merchandising acumen and vision are world class. I've been in similar stores across the US and Europe and the Market at Grelen is my favorite. Pair that with a third-generation nurseryman - the largest vendor of mature trees on the East Coast - and you have a unique experience garden-wise because they... More

I have been to The Market at Grelen multiple times. I've been on my own to purchase plants, garden containers and gifts. I know very little about gardening and the staff is always very friendly and helpful (and without condescension!). When my parents came to visit from Washington, D.C. we had a lovely visit at Montpelier then went to Grelen... More

Close to Montpelier, the home of President and Father of the Constitution, James Madison, sits the lovely Market at Grelen. I went there this past summer with some friends during a local fair they were hosting. We had so much fun!! Are you hungry? Then you are in luck as their food is excellent, making the most of their own... More

I took my parents up here for lunch one day, and what a great day we had. The views are spectacular, and it was a perfect setting for an early fall lunch. The drive up from Charlottesville is beautiful and well worth it when you arrive at Grelen. There are great sitting spots for just relaxing and taking in all... More

Gorgeous scenery and vista, yummy local foods and really unique home/garden items--a definite top ten spot to visit if in area! If lucky enough to live nearby, they have lots of seasonal events and are fun for all ages.

It's easy to take things for granted especially when you have them in your backyard. If you are anywhere near Orange county Virginia please take the time to drive through some of the most beautiful country in the Piedmont to one of the prettiest, tasteful and fun places around. My wife and I have visited the Market on several of... More

This place has it all! A lovely garden shop, incredible food, amazing vistas, a music series, berry picking, nature walks, wine tastings. It is also a lovely venue for special events such as weddings, showers, luncheons and dinners. I have been there at least a dozen times, solo, with girlfriends, with family, for workshops and special events. The staff couldn't... More

I have taken 2 separate classes at The Market at Grelen - flower arranging and wreath making. Both were very informative and fun. Shared a delicious lunch (and bottle of wine) with friends from the class and went home with a beautiful arrangement.
