Please join us for FlowerMart 2014
Baltimore's annual rite of Spring
which will take place in the parks of Mt. Vernon surrounding the Washington Monument on Friday, May 2, 2014 and Saturday, May 3, 2014 from 11AM to 8PM both days. FlowerMart has no admission charge and is full of flowers, food and fun for families.
It is also a good place to buy gifts for a friend, loved one or yourself because arts and crafts are in good plenitude. French linens, pottery, collectibles, Japanese textiles, handbags, soaps, pet accessories, housewares, stationery, photos, watercolors and many different kinds of jewelry are only some of the many kinds of unique gifts available for purchase.
Many types of bedding flowers will be sold, plus hanging baskets, herbs, carnivorous plants and vegetable plants. Some of the garden accessories available include iron decorations, plant hangers, hanging chairs, pots, tomato cages, potting soil, bird feeders and birdbaths.
In addition, several non-profit, wellness and commercial vendors will be there to display their services and goods. You can get a massage or a blood pressure check and learn about window replacements and Center Stage’s upcoming season. Be sure to stop by the Wilkins Subaru booth in front of Mt. Vernon Place United Methodist Church to check out the two automobiles that will be parked there.
Check our entertainment page for the schedule of the many great vocal, dance and instrumental acts that will perform on two stages: some are returning favorites and several new entertainers will grace FlowerMart with their efforts. Classic autos will be displayed in the East Park both days! The children’s area on Saturday from 12 - 5 in the West Park will feature several different kinds of hands-on activities. Enter any or all of our five contests: the Grand Hat Contest on Friday and on Saturday the Pet Contest, the NEW Over The Top Fabulous Hat Contest, Best Flower Costume Contest and the Dance Contest. Don’t forget to visit the Duchess of Windsor Happy Hour booth at the Monument on Friday from 5 - 7PM.
While you’re enjoying all these things, avail yourself of the food court offerings, among them gyros, fresh fruit smoothies, crab cakes and soup, kosher hot dogs, Linganore wines. Up at the monument, treat yourself to such delectables as soft ice cream, handmade chocolates and pecans. Of course, you must pick up a lemon peppermint stick next to the Peabody Institute and maybe take one home for a loved one since special takeout packages are available.
So if you want to come down to Mt. Vernon just to see the progress of the restoration of the Washington Monument, why not stick around and enjoy the Mart!
