May Market is an all hands on deck fundraiser for the Essex Garden Club on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend, and provides the funds that are used for Scholarships (($5,000 scholarships this year) and Town Beautification.
There will be 2,000 members’ plants for which have been dug from the gardens of Club members and their neighbors, so they are “proven winners” in our climate. But that’s not all …. 500 herb plants, 400 tomato plants and an awesome selection of annuals will be for sale – everything you need to get a head start in your garden this year.
Because it’s Mother’s Day weekend, a bouquet of spring flowers from the Cut Flower booth or something handcrafted from Garden Gifts would make a lovely present. And then there will be a supply of the Club’s legendary Garlic Salt which has been sold out since last Fall.
If you’re looking for variety, don’t miss the popular Jewelry tent which is expanding this year to include scarves, handbags and belts; Treasures where you will find bargains galore; and the Boutique which will be offering some more up-market items to purchase.
It’s an event not to be missed, and will take place rain or shine!
