Stock up on unique plants, gardening accessories, handmade jewelry, lawn decor and more at Phipps’ 81st annual May Market.
Celebrate spring at our perennially popular May Market, a bustling marketplace where Phipps horticulturists, local garden clubs, nurseries, farms and other vendors come together for a plant sale of ultra-green proportions. May Market is free and open to the public, and on Fri., May 12, National Public Gardens Day, Conservatory admission is 50-percent off during May Market hours. It’s the perfect Mother’s Day weekend outing!
Organic herbs and vegetable seedlings, tropical plants and succulents, low-maintenance perennials and shrubs on Phipps’ Top 10 Sustainable Plants lists, native and rain garden plants, and many other seasonal favorites are among the offerings green thumbs can expect to find at May Market. Also available for sale will be everything from organic soil and landscaping materials to botanical art and natural body care products. As always, Phipps staff and Master Gardeners will be on hand to share advice, and delicious hand-dipped fondant strawberries — a traditional offering — will be served. Stay tuned for a list of 2017 vendors and make plans to join us!
Please note that some vendors accept cash only.
