The 95th annual Flower Market festival enjoyed three rain-free days and temperatures in the 80’s, helping attracts thousands of people to Rockford Park this past weekend. The Flower Market is a little bit of everything — live music, carnival rides, food vendors, retail merchants, and of course flowers, herbs and plants of just about every kind. The stellar weather this year helped boost attendance, leaving a few exhibitors low on supply. By Saturday afternoon, Oh My Balsamic sold out of several varieties of bottled vinegar and olive oils, even though owner Jackie Dougherty traveled back to New Jersey on Friday for more. Floral and plant vendors also enjoyed brisk business. “I don’t remember there being so few plants and flowers left to choose from on the final day,” said Flower Market visitor Xannie Morris.

The Flower Market expects to generate $110,000 this year and award grants to some 70 non-profit organizations.
