Nectar and Company’s second annual Garden Market, a unique plant sale designed to inspire and create, will be held at the Museum of Arts and Sciences.
Garden Market will consist of six enticing themed concept shops in a 60 by 60 square foot tent. Under the auspices of the giant tent, attendees will be directed to these “shops within a shop” areas specifically designed to highlight the creativity and fun of gardening.
How to videos, designed and created to show guests fun, unique and exciting ways to utilize the Garden Market merchandise will be available for purchase. Action and cooking stations will inspire guests to decorate and entertain inside and outside of their homes with featured flowers and plants. The shops will also feature demonstrations by local chefs, kids’ activities, and passels of suggestions for plant usage.
A portion of Garden Market proceeds benefits the Museum of Arts and Sciences.
