    Kick off the gardening season and get your green on at the Spring Garden Market, taking place at River Farm, home of the American Horticultural Society (get directions here)! Here are some highlights to expect:

    • Vendors from across the Mid-Atlantic region will be selling a wide variety of plants and seeds, along with garden decor, accessories, books, and botanically themed art. 
    • A food truck will offer refreshments, or you may bring a picnic to enjoy.
    • Garden Carts: A limited number of carts and wagons will be available for carrying purchases to your car, but we suggested visitors BYOC (bring your own cart). 
    • Plant Hold Tent: Park your purchases in one spot while you complete your shopping. When you're ready, plant porters will be on hand to assist you to your car.
    • Master Gardeners: Get research-based answers to your gardening questions.
    • Art Show: Inside the Estate House, enjoy a botanically themed art show. All pieces are for sale (a percentage of the price is donated to River Farm).

    Entrance:  Please carpool so that we don't run out of parking spaces! Entrance is FREE for AHS members with proof of membership, and $10 per car  or (cash only) for non-members. This entrance fee may be applied toward an AHS membership. Proof of AHS membership can be: 1) a current AHS membership card, or 2) a copy of the March/April issue of The American Gardener magazine, or 3) use your phone to show us an AHS email thanking you for joining.

    Please note that parking is not permitted on East Boulevard Drive outside of River Farm's gates, per the National Park Service -- towing is enforced.

    Proceeds from the Spring Garden Market benefit the American Horticultural Society's outreach programs and the stewardship of River Farm. For more information, call (703) 768-5700.
