Pop Up In the Garden

Come for the lunch, stay for the shopping! During select Garden Fresh Luncheons, we invite a select group of local artisans to a Pop Up Shop like no other. Our Pop Up Shops feature one-of-a-kind items and handmade luxuries. Browse through a selection of jewelry, art, household items, textiles, decor, and more. Treat yourself or find the perfect present for family and friends. A portion of sales benefit Gamble Garden.
