Spring Market 2024 Recap

To All of the Rowayton Gardeners,

Wow, now THAT was fun! Congratulations to everyone that participated in this year’s Spring Market & Plant Sale. Saturday’s event was a smashing success!

A special thank you goes to the Committee heads and all of the Volunteers that made it possible.

Here are the highlights:

* We were blessed with gorgeous weather.

* We had customers waiting at the gate thirty minutes before we opened the Market.

* We had over 500 plants from friends and member’s gardens.

* All of the Bouquets To Go (new this year) sold out in the first hour and the Dahlias (new this year) were gone in an hour and a half.

* The food offerings at The Cafe were as visually exquisite as they were delicious, so everything sold very well.

Second Hand Rose surrounded The Cafe and incorporated many beautiful items along with our plants and hanging baskets.

* The Veggies & Herbs area was busy with customers all day.

* The Information Allée (new this year) hosted our RG membership table with the Who We Are, What We Do & Community Map posters as well as Davey Tree.

* Davey Tree handed out 200 free trees (new this year).

* The Hold area and Cashiers kept the crowds moving smoothly through the shop and purchase process.

* The Electric Lawn Mower & Equipment display (new this year) was located in the southwest corner of the market area and appeared to have many visitors.

Financially, we did very well, more to follow on that.

In closing, Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! for making The Spring Market & Plant Sale the fun, community building and successful event that it was!
