April 14th at Apex Farmers’ Market – Plant Sale Fundraiser

I’ll be taking part in a fundraiser for the Apex Farmers’ Market that will be held in the the market location, but on April 14th, one week before Opening Day. The fundraiser is to raise money to run the market itself. The market is a registered non-profit organization and relies on donations, grants, and some support from the taxpayers of Apex for funding.

This fundraiser will feature a food truck rodeo and plant sale. For the plant sale, I will donate 50% of all sales to the market. There will also be an area for visitors to the market to donate plants for sale. These plants should be your own plants and there are a few other rules to keep the plant sale in the spirit of an Apex event and to prevent the spread of plant diseases and pests.

This is my current plant list. I may not bring dormant plants to the event, but will have them for sale within the next few weeks. For the most part I won’t have vegetables and herbs at this fundraiser; I have a limited amount of room to bring plants. Vegetables and herbs will be available on April 21st and beyond from myself and at least one other vendor. Please note: I aim to stay in tune with the season. I won’t have items like basil, cucumbers, cotton, okra, and other warm-soil vegetables until early May.

3″ pots are approximately 1.5 cups, and 4″ pots are approximately 1 quart / 4 cups. 95+% of these plants are seed grown with just 4 of the strawberry plants coming from runners from seed grown plants, those will be marked as “Clones”.
