Raise your Lemon Sticks – Flower Mart is back! With major support from The Agora Companies., which recognized the value of a revitalized Flower Mart to the community, Baltimore City’s annual rite of spring returns to its original roots with a 21st century twist. Flower Mart, under new leadership of The Mount Vernon Place Conservancy, takes place Friday, May 3 and Saturday, May 4 from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. in historic Mount Vernon Place. Cherished traditions will be honored, with a renewed emphasis on local vendors. There will be flower and food stalls, jewelers and woodworkers, workshops and lectures, musical performances, and, of course, Lemon Sticks.
