Garden Fair

Garden Fair

The annual Garden Fair will be held Saturday, May 18 and Sunday, May 19. This fundraiser for the public library will be held at the usual location, 118 Jackson, Orient. The second day will be the Plant Sale only from 9:00 am - 1:00 pm.

 The Garden Fair will have a good selection of annuals for the first time. It’s going to be fun to have all those pretty colors to choose from!. Also an excellent assortment of perennials from local gardens will be for sale, along with potted succulents, heirloom tomato plants and possibly other vegetable plants. Expect to see vendors selling items such as jewelry, corrugated metal designs, lavender products, quilts, birdhouses, signs, garden art, used books, and handmade soaps.

 Another feature of the Garden Fair is food and it will again be available! Look for the bright yellow Soulshine food truck parked on the property serving a variety of lunch menu items. Desserts will also be available to purchase and seating will be available. Customer parking is north of the Garden Fair, not on the street. Handicap drop off only in driveway.
