This Sunday, the Borough Hall Greenmarket will transform into a one-day flower market, complete with master gardening classes, demonstrations, and, of course, dozens of kinds of plants to purchase.
Per an email from the organizers, the Council on the Environment of NYC:
Greenmarket kicks off its first borough-wide annual one-day Flower Market this Sunday, April 19th from 8 am to 4 pm at Brooklyn Borough Hall. Shoppers can celebrate spring with a bounty of perennials, annuals, bulbs, herbs, flats, house plants, and cut flowers. There will be special planting activities, expert advice from CENYC’s Open Space Greening Program’s Master Gardner, Gerard Lordhal, cooking demos, music and more!
UPDATE: Here’s more information, from event organizer Sabine Hrechdakian:
We’ll have Greenmarket farmers Chris Emmerich from Emmerich Greenhouses, Rich Hodgson from Hodgson Farms and Mark Phillips from Phillips Farms. …And [we’ll have] a very large variety of perennials, annuals, bulbs, herbs and flowers. It will be a great way for people to get inspired about planting and gardening, especially with our resident expert giving free planting advice from 12 – 4 pm.
