Flower Mart

A long standing Baltimore tradition and rite of spring is Flower Mart, held in Mt. Vernon. America’s first official Flower Mart was in 1911, right here in Baltimore. This weekend you can join in on the tradition around the Washington Monument at Charles and Monument Streets on Friday, May 1 and Saturday, May 2, 2009.

Enjoy delicious food while perusing specialty annuals and perennials, and learn how to create a successful urban garden. If you don’t have a green thumb, you can take home something that won’t wilt by shopping the local artisan and craftsman vendors, including BEST’s own Elisa Shere.

Admission is free and it is a family-friendly event. A complete list of events can be found here. Don’t forget your lemon stick!
