Sambuca’s Greenhouse and Country Market

There have been a lot of changes at Sambuca’s Country Market and Greenhouse!


25 years ago, Eddy and Karen Ambrose began selling their home-grown flowers under an umbrella at the corner of Rt.3 and Walnut Street in Galena. Today, Sambuca’s Italian Greenhouse and Country Market has expanded into a Galena institution with a large greenhouse and market that offers deli meats and cheeses, wine and a growler station. “We’re like a family here,” said Charlotte McGowen, who manages the greenhouse at Sambuca’s. While the operation has grown considerably, Charlotte said the quality has not changed. “Except for the tropicals, we grow all our flowers and vegetables in our greenhouses,” she said. During the quarantine, Charlotte said many people came to the nursery just to walk around and get out of the house. “We’re fine with that,” she said. “Let them have a little sunshine.” She said they have been selling more vegetable plants this year as many people have decided to start canning vegetables again. “With the virus, I think people are starting to think about where they get their food and want some control,” Charlotte said. Sambuca’s is located at 577 Walnut Street in Galena. They can be reached at 740-965-4422 or online at
