The Shippan Point Garden Club May Market is an annual tradition that brings the community together to select plants for the upcoming gardening season, visit with neighbors, have a bite from our café and simply enjoy the beauty of our plant offerings.

The event is held the Saturday before Mother’s Day at Our Lady Star of the Sea.

There is a Pre-Sale component of the event assuring your order ahead of time; there are many more varieties that can purchased on the day of the event.

The May Market features:

  • Annuals
  • Perennials
  • Vegetables
  • Herbs
  • Baskets/Planters
  • Specialty Foliage
  • Hanging Baskets
  • Budding Gardeners (for 3–12 year olds)

  • Providing community conservation and education
  • Funding an annual $5,000 horticultural scholarship to a deserving high school student
  • Enabling monthly Garden Therapy for residents of ARK Healthcare & Rehabilitation on Elm Street
