Driving through town, the bright yellow daffodils and abundant forsythia are a great reminder to mark your calendars to visit the Suffield Garden Club’s annual MAY MARKET on May 20.
Admission is free, but don’t forget to bring cash or your checkbook for most purchases as there will be many delightful treats to tempt you. Over forty vendors will participate, with many of your favorites returning yet again. Shop for jewelry, textiles, spices and decorative items for house and garden. A welcome new addition will be the “Smoke N’ Fire Food Truck” featuring a variety of BBQ favorites such as those featured at their Suffield restaurant, the Fire on the Mountain Smokehouse, located at 82 North Main Street.
Students from the Suffield Regional Agriscience Program are coming back to May Market with potted herbs, veggie plants and sprouts to plant in your own garden. Students also grow the popular geranium plants every year, and there will be a lovely selection available at the geranium booth. Want to learn more about gardening? Stop by the Suffield Garden Club booth for helpful tips as well as a selection of practical garden tools for sale. Also onsite will be the Suffield Conservation team to help you learn about wetland preservation activities in Suffield. Returning favorites include the popular Collectibles booth as well as the Member Plants tent which includes reasonably priced perennials guaranteed to grow in our area.
The Suffield Garden Club, organized in 1934, is a non-profit organization dedicated to the beautification of Suffield. Proceeds from this event support civic beautification, scholarships, town conservation, horticulture education, and garden therapy programs.
