 Fall Gardeners Market
Saturday, August 25, 2018

Vendors are needed for this year's Fall Gardeners Market.  If you are a vendor and interested in applying for a vendor spot, please apply here.  Just a couple spots left-hurry and sign up.
This event is open to the public, you do not need to be a member to shop here.  Please bring a friend and share your experience of the many wonderful events the HPS offers.

Fall will be here shortly! after a long hot summer it’s time to take stock of your garden and make plans for the end of this year and next Spring by shopping now at the Fall Gardeners Market. Our annual event brings together all the nurseries you love to shop at all in one location. As usual our vendors will have a fabulous selection to satisfy all your planting needs.

This ever popular event will continue the tradition of offering an auction, special pricing on nitrile gardening gloves and a membership booth, nonmembers can chat about HPS with longtime members, and may join or renew HPS that day.

Volunteers will be on hand to direct parking and load your cars. Bring a wagon or cart to carry your purchases. A plant park is available to leave your selections, while you continue to shop. Bring your friends and neighbors. The sale is free and open to everyone. If you are available to help set-up, greet, or sell raffle tickets the day of the event or have a question,  please contact Laura Axel at [email protected].   To apply to be a vendor, click here.
