August is coming to an end and with it, the end of the Saturday Morning Summer Market at Williams Park. As many of you may know, the rainy weather caused the last 2 weeks to be rained out, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that this coming Saturday, Aug. 25th, being the last day of Summer Market, will stay dry long enough in order for you to come get some beauties that are looking for good homes. We have been in the process of having a Summer clearance sale at market all summer long and many customers have got some great bargains for great plants and there our still great plants to be had.
The summer has been a great time to clear out the old and start the new, as we look forward to the regular Fall season of Markets and Shows. We have lots of plants growing and more planned as we go along in the season. What can you expect ?
As usual, we will continue to offer our Rare and Unusual Exotics, great Butterfly-friendly specimens, Tilansias (air plants), Passion Vines galore, Ferns, Herbs and more.
Remember, our goal is to bring you the unusual, and even though we might carry something "common" like Hibiscus, the ones we have will come in colors not usually available in Big Box stores etc.
Fall season for the Saturday Morning Market, at Al Lang Field, starts up Sat. Oct. 6th. That weekend, we will also be set up down at Tropiflora Nursery in Sarasota, for their annual Fall Plant Sale that runs Fri/Sat/Sun, Oct. 5-7th. As we get closer, we will be updating everyone on more great news with the market and with Plant Shows.
Remember! Although we don't have a market or show in September, we are available for your plant needs at our place in St. Pete. Just email or call us with your "wish list". Also, since it is a slower time, we can Deliver locally. Next week, look for our Availability List as we start getting the word out wider to everyone about what we have.
Also, we will be sending out a weekly email to everyone, about our plants, sales venues and plant tips. If you want to be part of the fun, email us that you wish to be put on the Email communication, and we promise, we do NOT share your email with anyone else !
Thank you to the many customers that came out throughout the summer to support us as well as the whole Market, and our fellow vendor friends. For many of us, who do not have regular jobs, the summer market again provided an opportunity for us to make a living and your support meant the world to us !
