2024 Spring Seedling Sale at MAP’s urban farm

On Saturday, May 4, 2024, Massachusetts Avenue Project (MAP) will host their annual spring ‘Seedling Sale’ event, which promises to offer a wide range of garden treasures, including vegetables, herbs, and flower varieties such as lemon verbena, oregano, pineapple mint, calendula, squash, broccoli, peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, zinnias, and tulips. All total, there will be over 70 varieties of vegetables, flowers, and herb seedlings, all grown at the West Side farm. MAP’s Mobile Market truck will be on-hand to ensure that visitors to the event have access to seasonal, farm-fresh goods.

Topping off the incredible seed sale, there will be 15 vendors present at the event, serving up all sorts of delicious delights, including Colombian arepas (Breva Kitchen), soul-food style barbecue (Denver N Dallas), Armenian pastries and appetizers (WNY Armenian Community), gluten-free and vegan dessert items (Sack + Sugar), and coffee, tea (Undergrounds Coffee).

“For over a decade, MAP’s Spring Seedling Sale has served as an opportunity to promote food sovereignty and empower folks to connect with the land and grow their own food,” said Diane Picard, Executive Director, Massachusetts Avenue Project. “Last year, we sold over 2,500 seedlings and we are thrilled to once again open our doors for this important community-building event in support of our local food system.” 

Local vendors will provide a diverse assortment of offerings for sale including:

Youth-made functional art for gardens from The Foundry

Ceramics from a variety of artists will also be available for sale

Books from Read It & Eat Bookshop

Garden-oriented products from BFLO Worm Works, Creekside Flowers, and more.

Last but not least, the event will feature a number of community partners, such as Grassroots Gardens WNY, The Tool Library, Greater Buffalo Urban Growers, and WNY Partnership for Regional and Invasive Species Management. There will be plenty of takeaways, for people who want to live healthier, more sustainable lives.
