Alexandria VA – SAVE THE DATE!
2024 Spring Garden Market at River Farm
Presented by the American Horticultural Society

Celebrate the start of gardening season with the American Horticultural Society’s annual Spring Garden Market at River Farm. This much-anticipated outdoor event, one of River Farm’s largest and most popular fundraisers, brings together plant, seed and garden accessory retailers, nature-focused artists and authors, gardening experts, food vendors, and fun for the whole family. The 2024 Spring Garden Market will take place April 12 & 13, 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m., at River Farm.

Proceeds from the Spring Garden Market directly contribute to the maintenance, beautification and preservation of River Farm, headquarters of the AHS since 1973. Once part of George Washington’s farmland, the 25-acre site overlooking the Potomac River is enhanced by a blend of formal and naturalistic gardens, including an award-winning children’s garden, woodlands, and many breathtaking views. Offering free access to the community six days a week, River Farm is truly a local and national horticultural and historical treasure.

Joining us for the first time this year are Mid-Atlantic Pine Straw Mulch, Plants with Purpose Farm, Gryffin River Shack featuring oyster garlands and wreaths, Pawfectly Delicious Dog Treats, and others. Of course, returning horticultural favorites include Nature by Design, Hill House Farm & Nursery, and Radical Roots Community Farm, among many others. Fairfax County Master Gardeners Association will be onsite to answer your plant and gardening questions. Lilian and Nathalie Cake can provide an energy boost with delicious edible culinary botanical baked goods, and Rocklands always pleases with their award-winning barbeque.
