Our Garden Market will celebrate its 25th year on Friday, May 3 (9AM-6PM) and Saturday, May 4, 2024 (9AM-4PM). Last year’s Garden Market attracted over 6,000 guests during the two-day event—our largest ever!
Each year, our guest count rises due to increased awareness through advertising, repeat customers, the quality and diversity of vendor products, and word of mouth. We are blessed that it has grown over these years into such a vibrant and beloved community event!
Our Garden Market gives vendors the opportunity to sell garden-related and natural products to the public with designated booth and ground space on our historic campus. We work to raise community awareness about our event with a mix of print advertising, publicity, signage and social media. We collaborate with our vendors and business sponsors to make this event both pleasant and fruitful for all—rain or shine.
Please realize this is a fundraising endeavor on our part, so we do charge a fee to our vendors as well as solicit business sponsorships. There is no admission fee for visitors to the event.
Monies raised at our event help support our various ministries throughout the year, including:
- Our Outreach Office Food Pantry, which is open year round, 3 days a week to distribute food to people in need.
- Our Mission Committee, which funds worthy charities in our county, state and nation.
- Our Parish Center used as a meeting place for four recovery groups. We support efforts to reduce addiction in our community.
- Our ongoing and committed stewardship of a historic building and property. Our active church, established in 1706, is a registered Maryland Historic Landmark.
For 318 years, St. Mary Anne’s has remained steadfast to Jesus’ mandate to love God and our neighbor. We hope that you will participate in this year’s Garden Market—so that together, we can celebrate God’s beautiful creation for the benefit of many.
Thank you and Blessings,
The Rev. John R. Schaeffer, Rector Dawn M. Rodenbaugh, Vendor Coordinator
