Come Join Us at a Farmers’ Market

Betty T. and Janet D. Power of Flowers Booth at the Tewksbury Farmers’ Market

The times they are a changin’… Can you feel it? There’s a slight nip in the air, a crispness that wasn’t there a few weeks ago. Fall is here.

With fall comes the delightful tradition of Farmers’ Markets. Where local farmers and backyard growers bring their bounty to share with the community. Power of Flowers is proud to set up a booth at some local Farmers’ Markets, where you and your whole family can come to meet a smiling POF Volunteer in person, take some literature, admire some sample POF signature bouquets and even take one home for a donation.

Here’s a list of four local Farmers’ Markets where Power of Flowers will be in the next few weeks:
