Beautiful flower pots at Bloomer’s Greenhouse

Even though our Winter venue is awesome, I think everyone is looking forward to being back outdoors for the Summer Market…looking forward to the dogs joining us, to seeing new faces, and to meeting old friends. It will be fun!

Since our Summer venue did not change for this season, everything should look and feel familiar – parking, vendor locations, the music, and our volunteers. Speaking of volunteers, we do have one special request this year. In this venue, our volunteers put out and then take down lots of heavy cones to make it safe for our customers. Unfortunately, the cones are very tempting for our dog visitors and we understand that. But for the sake of our volunteers, please help steer your dog away from the cones as you enter and exit the Market. Thank you!

Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday, 8 am – 12 noon  behind Lowe’s Home Improvement Center in Glendale!
