Before or after your self-guided tour, visit Gamble Garden for an unparalleled shopping experience at the Marketplace featuring local vendors, our signature Over The Garden Fence sale of vintage items, and a Gamble-grown plant sale. Bid on unique items at our Silent Auction. Shop for unique garden-related gifts and get advice from horticultural resources. Enjoy refreshments while live music serenades you.
