Marston Greenhouses: A family business since the late 1800s

Shrewsbury - Tucked away off Main Street just a third of a mile from Ski Ward are a series of six greenhouses at 271 Spring St. They are open to the public from Easter until the first of November selling annuals, perennials and vegetable seedlings and are known as a great source for big tomato plants. The other half of the business continues year round for commercial and wholesale customers. Bill and Marion Marston, their sons James and Joseph, daughter-in-law Hana, and grandchildren Alix, 5, and Angelina, almost 3, all work together in the family business.
