Due to covid restrictions, we are unable to provide a shuttle for this year’s May Gardeners Market. Parking is available on May 1st at Moretti Field on Bible Street where a marked trail through the woods will lead to the market. Additional parking is available at the end of Montgomery Lane, just a short walk from the GBC. A designated plant pick-up area will be provided so that you may return with your car to pick up your purchases.
The May Gardeners Market continues to thrive as a popular community event for Greenwich residents and many others in Fairfield and Westchester County. This annual fundraiser supports the Educational and Senior Outreach programs of the Greenwich Botanical Center.
