THE MARKET AT GRELEN

The Market at Grelen's Mission Statement says it beautifully: To create a family friendly environment which celebrates open space, agriculture and the farm-to-table philosophy while marketing our products and services to our visitors resulting in a successful and sustainable business model. 

The Market at Grelen is a destination farm market and garden shop like no other in the area. Ask for a buggy ride to see their massive selection of plants, trees, and shrubs or select from the many garden plants and gear in the potting shed, greenhouse, half moon gardem or the indoor market!

Set on Grelen Nursery’s 600 acres in Somerset Virginia, The Market at Grelen boasts breathtaking 360 degree mountain views. You can go shopping any day, but a trip to Grelen is about the experience. We have enjoyed several visits and know you will, too!
