Christmas Market

 

Michler’s Greenhouses provides the idyllic setting for a romantic Christmas Market. The aromas of blooming citrus blending with the cinnamon and cloves of hot mulled wine.

Christmas pastries will be piled up for the sweet tooth to nibble by a fire. The sound of the Cello will be echoing off the glass. Naturally, no market is complete without artists and artisans. We are hosting a diversity of vendors to provide locally made ceramics, jewelry, cards, jams, soaps, ornaments and more. Michler’s wreath makers will be crafting wreaths all day and our florists decorating boxwood trees.
