Flower Mart at Mount Vernon Place 2023

Celebrate the beginning of spring at the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy’s Flower Mart, Baltimore’s oldest free public festival and home to the iconic lemon stick! The springtime celebration takes place in Mount Vernon surrounding the Washington Moument with vendors lining the streets. Flower Mart was founded in 1911 by the Women’s Civic League, an organization that advocated for better living conditions throughout Baltimore, and has remained a beloved tradition ever since. The event helps promote green living by featuring sustainable vendors, many of whom grow and make their own products, hosting educational sessions and providing a beautiful, floral-filled atmosphere for Baltimoreans to get outside and enjoy the spring weather.
