Tyler TX (KETK) — Vendors have until Thursday at 5 p.m. to participate in the upcoming Sixth Annual Main Street Flower Market set for March 15 and 16 at the Goodman-LeGrand Museum and Gardens in downtown Tyler.
Those interested in receiving entry forms should call the City of Tyler Main Street Department office at (903) 593-6905, or go to the City of Tyler website at www.cityoftyler.orghttp://www.cityoftyler.org .
The cost of participation is $40 for for-profit entities, and free to non-profits. Vendors are limited to selling items for, from or relating to gardening.
The market will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Featured items will include daylily bulbs, roses, herbs, ferns, garden décor, trees and much more.
“This event will be one of the first to help kick off this year’s Tyler Azalea and Spring Flower Trails,” said Beverly Abell, City of Tyler Main Street Department Leader. “The Main Street Flower Market is always one of the most anticipated events that occurs during Azalea Trails.”
Two of the event’s most popular booths will return. The Main Street Department will have its own fundraising booth specializing in herbs. The non-profit Heart of Tyler will once again sell large, lush ferns and geraniums. In addition, the Smith County Master Gardeners will be selling roses, and the East Texas Daylily Society will be on hand to sell daylily bulbs.
“Even if you do not garden, it is a treat to just walk through the grounds during the Flower Market,” Abell said. “It is now a rite of spring for many to come to the market to see the front lawn of the Goodman covered in beautiful, colorful gardening displays.”
The Main Street Flower Market is organized by the City of Tyler Main Street Department in order to welcome visitors to the downtown area during Azalea Trails and to highlight one of downtown’s most historic sites.
