Saturday Morning Market is back Sat. Oct 7, 2017
Greetings all, after a very long summer, and hurricanes and lots of challenges, this time of year brings us to the start of the new Market Season, and Saturday Morning Market, downtown St. Pete will start it's 15th season tomorrow, Sat. Oct. 7th.
The Market resumes back at Al Lang Field Parking Lot off of 1st avenue south and 1st street and you can find Armstrong Nursery on the very back East row of the market layout.
Market hours are 9am,-2pm.
A full contingent of vendors (140 plus) will be waiting for our treasured customers, including the popular Worden Farms Organic Produce vendors.
We are excited to start another season and have all sorts of wonderful plants for your home gardens, patios, homes and offices, and,
wonderful news, we have our popular Cedar Birdhouses back in stock !
Of course, we will have our usual huge selection of Mini Succulents and Cacti.
We continue to be able to bring a great selection of rare, Asian grafted Desert Rose, many with very impressive varigation and special colors, such as the rare Yellow Desert Rose.
We have some beauties for full sun out in the garden such as the popular Pink Mandevilla and Purple Sapphire Showers.
We have some great ground covers for sun or shade, tons of great shade plants, and herbs such as Lavender and Oregano (don't worry, Basil will be available in a few weeks!).
We hope you come on down to see us at Market as the Armstrong Nursery team will be there in full force to help you find the perfect plant of your dreams !
Note: Many of you know that usually this first weekend of October, we also participate in the Tropiflora Fall Plant festival in Sarasota. Unfortunately Tropiflora experienced a lot of damage to their greenhouses from Hurricane Irma, but they are busily rebuilding and the show has been rescheduled for the end of this month.
