The VanKampen's story begins back in 1953, when Gijsbertus H. Van Kampen (G.H) emigrated to Prince Edward Island from Holland with his father, Adrian. They had been raised in a large family-run greenhouse, and swore they would never milk cows or work in a greenhouse again. As fate would have it, Adrian did milk cows most of his life, and G.H. purchased Gay's Market Garden Greenhouse in 1959.The early years at VanKampen's were mostly growing field crops. In 1963, they began growing tomatoes to wholesale to grocers, floral varieties and bedding plants. His sons Charlie and Bill VanKampen took over VanKampen's Greenhouse in 1984, and eventually sold to the Cassidy family in 2019. Today, VanKampen's Greenhouses has grown to a multi-acre operation that produces 10,000 lbs of tomatoes per week, over 15,000 hanging baskets per growing season and numerous other floral and bedding plant varieties!
Taste the Difference
No Chemical Sprays
We aim to avoid the use chemical sprays on our tomato crop, and aim to keep the crop as natural as possible. We introduce biologicals (beneficial insects) to control pests and bumblebees to pollinate our crop.
Fresh Tastes Better
We grow two varieties of greenhouse tomatoes, Cherry and Hot House, right here in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. Without spending time on a truck or shipping container, we are able to ensure we always deliver the freshest product to our consumers.
Custom Potting Service
Did you know VanKampens offers a custom potting service? Our talented team will ask you all of the important questions, such as will the pot will be North or South facing? Will it be viewed on only one side, or from 360 degrees? How much care will it receive? Do you prefer traditional, or modern? Do you have preferred colours? Once a budget has been set, and armed with this information, a greenhouse team member will create your custom pot! Simply pay a potting fee (depending on the size of your pot), and the retail price of the plants used. You can do this with your own pot, or purchase one onsite. This is a great service for the busy household, a cottage, or a beginner gardener!

Fundraise with VanKampens!
At VanKampen's Greenhouses, our local community is at the core of everything we do. Our most popular fundraising option is a hanging basket fundraiser - a fun way to raise money for your group, organization, sports team or event in three easy steps:
1. We sell a fundraising team vouchers available at wholesale prices
2. The participating fundraising team then sells the vouchers to the general public for retail prices. The customers who purchase the vouchers from the fundraising group redeem it at our store for a hanging basket.
3. Groups are able to keep the profits, and those who support them have beautiful flowers to enjoy!
