November 25 – December 24:  Honey Bear Trees, West Lot and Redwood Hall


We are pleased to welcome our NEW Christmas Tree vendors!  Since 1986, Honey Bear Trees in Redwood City has been a trusted source of the finest Christmas trees.  They offer four different sustainable varieties, including hard-to-find tall trees ranging from 10-ft. to over 20-ft. tall.  Wreaths, garland, mistletoe and tree stands.   Honey Bear Trees began over 40 years ago, when a young beekeeper in Oregon began growing Christmas Trees on a lark. Hans, the beekeeper and now a tree grower, began giving away a free bottle of honey whenever he sold a tree.   They continue this tradition by giving away  a free bottle of honey (while supplies last) with every Christmas Tree sold.  For more information, visit:

Dates:  Opening for sale on November 25 while supplies last

Parking:  FREE
