Hot Tips for Shopping at the March Edible Plant Sale
Take a look at some helpful information for maximizing your enjoyment at the sale.
Wagons, boxes, plant flats and friends are all helpful ways to help you carry your plants. We will also be selling plastic plant trays or "flats" at the "Buy a Flat" station near the entry for $1.
Pick-up a Wristband in the Morning. A staggered entry system will allow the maximum number of people to enter the sale and keep the entrance flowing smoothly during the busiest times. Beginning at 8 a.m., you can get an appointed time of entry when you pick up a color-coded wristband in the lower field west of the sale entrance on 5th Ave S. This will allow you to enjoy the activities in the lower field outside of the sale without needing to wait in line. Busiest times are usually 9 - 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.
- Travel Smart.
GET DIRECTIONS to Pacific Market Center. Carpool, take a bus (#131, #132, #154 or #173), or use other alternative transportation. Ample, free parking is also available in the lot on 5th Ave S.
- Leave the Pooches Home.
Because of the high volume of people at the event, dogs are not allowed in the sale.
Look for plant info on signs, or ask a plant seller. If you have any questions, ask the garden educators at the Seattle Tilth booth.
Stock Up and Fuel Up.
Buy a copy of our new book Your Farm in the City or the Maritime NW Garden Guide, seeds, supplies and more at the Seattle Tilth booth. Cedar Grove compost and potting soil will be available for $6/bag - you can pay at check-out and pick-up your bags at the loading zone in the parking lot on 5th Ave S.
Patty Pan Cooperative and Mighty-O Doughnuts will be there cooking up tasty local, organic food. Visit the Seattle Farm Co-op, Seattle Seed Company, Seattle Burlap, and Burnt Ridge Nursery booths in the parking lot for more plants and supplies.
