Take a trip to the ever-changing market

Naesgaard’s Market is a truly unique, seasonal affair. Filled with plants and fresh, local produce in the spring and summer months, Naesgaard’s Market turns into a winter wonderland for the holidays, complete with trees, ornaments, and everything needed to have a holly, jolly Christmas season. 


Fresh local Douglas, grand, and Nobel firs, as well as white pine trees, are available for purchase. You can also decorate your local tree with some unique, wacky, and awesome tree ornaments also available at the market.
