flowerThe sixth annual Main Street Flower Market, set for Friday and Saturday March 15 and 16 will feature a wide variety of gardening items ranging from bedding plants to herbs and garden décor.

The event will be held at the Goodman-LeGrand Museum, 624 N. Broadway, in Downtown Tyler. The Flower

Market is set for 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Admission is free. “This Flower Market will feature everything from plants to lawn furniture and beyond,” said City of Tyler Main Street Department Leader Beverly Abell. “We’re fond of saying that at the Flower Market, you can find just about anything for, from or related to the garden.”

A partial list of things to be on offer at the market includes azaleas, herbs, roses, trees, decorative fountains, exotic plants, bird houses, shrubs, wind chimes, bedding plants, daylily bulbs, pottery for the garden, orchids and more. Well more than a dozen booths will be on-site. The event is organized by the City of Tyler Main Street Department and the volunteers of the Heart of Tyler, Inc. Both groups will have booths at the market. The Main Street Department will offer a large variety of herbs for sale, Abell said, including chamomile, lemon mint, pineapple mint, tangerine thyme, parsley, dill, cilantro, and even catnip. Heart of Tyler will sell geraniums and ferns. Patrons may pre-order the plants by calling (903) 593-6905 and then picking them up and paying for them at the market on Friday or Saturday.

In addition, the Mayor’s Tree Tyler Initiative will be featured at a booth operated by the City of Tyler. The display will feature information and interactive activities aimed at increasing the presence of trees in Tyler. The Main Street Flower Market was created to draw AzaleaTrails visitors to downtown Tyler, and especially to the Goodman, Abell said.
