Winter Wonderland at the Evergreen Garden Market

Join us at the Garden Market for cozy Winter Wonderland vibes all of December! Grab a hot chocolate at Picnic Café and come on over to enjoy the festive atmosphere. Wander through the rows of Christmas trees or stroll through the aisles of local handmade goods and pick out something special.


When you make a purchase at the Garden Market, you’re selecting a gift that gives twice. The Garden Market is a social enterprise that supports local vendors and directs 100% of its proceeds back to supporting Evergreen’s mission of transforming public spaces in our cities to build a healthier future for people and our planet.

As the festive season approaches, one of the most delightful places to visit is undoubtedly the indoor Saturday Farmers Market at Evergreen Brick Works. While farmers markets are a treasure trove of fresh produce and local goods throughout the year, they take on an extra charm this season.

  • Festive bread and pastries: Artisanal bread, including sourdough, whole grain loaves, French baguettes, flaky and buttery croissants as well as assorted pastries filled with fruits, nuts, or cream cheese, pies, muffins, scones, cookies and biscotti. Some vendors specialize in gluten-free or vegan baked goods too!
