Gardeners who have been patiently waiting to put their warm-weather plants in the ground will want to “get growing” by checking out the array of flowers, native plants and vegetable plants available during Spring Flower Day from 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Sunday, June 2, at the Oakland County Farmers Market.
The market will be filled with colorful displays of annuals, perennials, plants and vegetable starters. Shoppers will find garden art and other garden-related items for sale, too.
There will be plenty of fun for the whole family as children can burn off their energy jumping on the inflatable bouncer (socks required) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and everyone can enjoy tasty barbecue from market vendor Red Wood Grill.
“Spring Flower Day is one of the best days of the year,” Market Manager Jeremy Brown said. “Our vendors are excited to showcase their fresh flowers and plants now that spring has finally arrived. If you are a first-time gardener or need advice on what to plant, stop by and speak with our farmers. They are available to help customers get the growing season off to a great start.”
All plants are grown locally as the Oakland County Farmers Market is a producer-direct market. Year round, the market hosts nearly 100 farmers and artisans, representing 17 Michigan counties.
A limited number of courtesy wagons will be available for patrons to use as they shop and visitors are welcome to bring their own wagons, too. Parking will be available at the market and the Road Commission of Oakland County lot located west of the market.
This event is sponsored by Vibe Credit Union.
The Oakland County Farmers Market is located at 2350 Pontiac Lake Road in Waterford. Regular market hours are 7 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday.
