Holiday Marketplace, a Berkshire Tradition

On December 7th and 8th, Berkshire Botanical Garden will transform its exhibit hall into a glittering showplace that is certain to inspire holiday cheer and put visitors into the spirit. Our Holiday Marketplace has become a Berkshire tradition and will once again feature our famous, one-of-a-kind wreaths in our Gallery of Wreaths. In addition we’ll have unique, festive centerpieces, fresh swags, and ornaments you won’t be able to find anywhere else. Preserved boxwood topiaries, boxwood kits, and festive tabletop decor will also be for sale, as will amaryllis, paper whites and hyacinths, all beautifully potted and ready for holiday bloom.

In addition to Garden-made gifts, visitors will have their choice of hundreds of gifts provided by a handpicked and diverse selection of talented regional artisans. Garden-lovers will enjoy selections from our Gift Shop including reference and coffee table books, gift-wrapped membership packages and baskets filled with herb products made by the Garden’s Herb Associates. Hungry visitors will be delighted by the Mediterranean inspired dishes provided by Naji’s of Great Barrington. Holiday Marketplace hours are Saturday December 7 from 10:00am to 5:00pm and Sunday, December 8 from 10:00am to 5:00pm and admission is free.

Proceeds from the Holiday Marketplace support Berkshire Botanical Garden’s educational programs and display gardens. Additional information on this and other Garden events is available at or by calling (413) 298-3926. The Berkshire Botanical Garden is located in Stockbridge, MA at the intersection of Routes 102 and 183.
