Spring Garden Fair & Plant Sale
Friday, May 19
Ithaca Farmers Market
One of the Finger Lakes' most highly anticipated gardening events is the annual Spring Garden Fair and Plant Sale, organized since 1982 by Master Gardener volunteers from Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County.
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.
Master Gardeners from CCE-Tompkins and other community groups participate in the sale to raise funds or create awareness of their programs. Visitors are encouraged to bring carts or wagons to aid in transporting their plant purchases to their cars. Admission is FREE!
