5th Annual Orchid, Exotic Plant Sale & Gourmet Food Festival at Bonnet House

This unique sale on the Bonnet House Grove has an exciting line up of over thirty orchid and exotic plant vendors. Flora fanatics have the opportunity to see and buy an exclusive selection of bamboo, butterfly garden plant and fruit trees, orchids, fruit and native vegetation seedlings, as well as plants directly from the Bonnet House property.

The two-day event will also feature plant accessories and supplies, garden art and a green market. There will be demonstrations and lectures for the whole family, a silent auction display, not to mention food and wine for guests. Newly added to the event this year are seven gourmet food trucks. Their offerings of edible bites for kids and adults alike are complemented by demonstrations from Whole Foods Market and Market 17. Chefs will give tips on caring for your garden and preparing healthy meals for the entire family. There is also a kids’ corner where Green Market owners will host children’s planting and gardening activities in the fruit grove.
