This year, because of COVID restrictions, we once again will hold the Plant Sale at the Ithaca Farmers' Market Pavilion with check-in entry to ensure the pavilion does not get overly-crowded. There are NO TICKETS this year, our new Friday hours set aside times for seniors and those who are immuno-compromised, and ensure that everyone will get a full weekend of planting time after purchasing your plants.

The Garden Fair & Plant Sale features a wide variety of vendors who offer specialty plants and gardening advice on topics ranging from growing rock garden plants to selecting native species for the garden. Plants for sale include organically grown and heirloom vegetable transplants, colorful annuals, fragrant herbs, hanging baskets, small flowering shrubs, hardy roses, fruit crops, trees, evergreens, and specialty perennials.

Visitors are encouraged to bring carts or wagons to aid in transporting their plant purchases to their cars. Admission is FREE!

Master Gardeners from CCE-Tompkins and other community groups participate in the sale to raise funds or create awareness of their programs. In past years, these have included members of the Finger Lakes Beekeepers, Auraca Herbarists, the Finger Lakes Native Plant Society, CCE-Tompkins Master Composter Program, several smaller garden clubs, and the Adirondack Chapter of the Rock Garden Society.

Visit our list of 2021 VENDORS (to be updated after May 1st when vendors are confirmed).


FREE! NO TICKETS this year!
