Reporting Jessica Kartalija
BALTIMORE (WJZ)—Spring is here and so is a Baltimore tradition that’s been around a century: Flowermart, famous for the lemon peppermint sticks and vendors offering up unique items.
Jessica Kartalija has more on the fun.
In historic Mount Vernon, the blooms are back. Flowermart means it’s time to celebrate spring.
What’s the best part of Flowermart?
“Just the people and the atmosphere,” said one patron.
“Butterflies and even lady bugs,” said a little girl.
It’s a great place to take a stroll and even pick up chicks.
“My mother used to take me out of school when we were younger, when I was 10. So I’ve been coming here 30 years,” said a frequent attendee.
There’s plenty of food, fun and flowers, and all for a good cause.
The late William Donald Schaefer loved Flowermart. And we’re told one of the last contributions he made was the Flowermart recipe book. It goes for $20 and all of the proceeds go to Mount Vernon.
Flowermart continues Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
