Annual BBQ Rib Competition

Sign up in store or call us if you have what it takes to be the “Rib King”.

The grilled meat must be pork spare ribs.

You can prep them at home but they must be cooked here on site.

Free* Houseplant Repotting

Sep 26th, 9:00am - 5:00pm

Bring in your root bound houseplants and a new pot, or purchase a new pot from our great selection. We will supply the labor and soil.

Our only restrictions are we cannot do pick ups or deliveries, you cannot drop off your plants ahead of time and *for Orchids there will be a $2 each charge for those requiring a bark medium.

Monarch Butterfly Release

Sep 27th, 2:00pm

Bring the kids and your camera for our annual Monarch Butterfly release.

Stop in Saturday to get an up close view of the Butterflies in their enclosure.

There will be a monarch wing photo-op for pictures of your little butterflies.

The Bridge Market will be here with their new pizza truck, and Sweet Treats will have ice cream available, so come early to buy lunch and a treat!
