The Market at Grelen is a European-style garden shop, casual cafe, event venue and pick-your-own farm. Set on Grelen's 600 acre Tree Nursery, The Market at Grelen feels like an Italian vineyard and boasts breathtaking views of the Blue Ridge mountains and contoured tree rows from the patio. You can go shopping any day, but a trip to Grelen is about the experience. Enjoy the delicious farm fresh fare, homemade ice cream, gardening gifts, flowers & plants, public walking trails & pick-your-own berries, peaches and apples (in season).
