FREE Vendor Spaces offered to Slow Flowers Members @ The Battery Midsummer Fair
June 25 and 26 
Showcase Local Flowers at a NEW Festival in NYC
The Battery Conservancy is creating a Midsummer Fair at The Battery, the 25-acre park at the tip of Manhattan, on June 25 and 26 to celebrate regional biodiversity and to showcase small batch producers and purveyors of horticulture, agriculture, food, and craft, with a focus on flowers and grains.

The organizers have invited Slow Flowers Members to showcase their flowers and designs as a vendor at the Fair. No Fees are being charged for vendors in this inaugural year!

Given The Battery's high-profile location, more than 60,000 attendees are expected during the June 25-26 weekend. Several feature articles in prominent NYC and food industry publications are planned. 

In addition, the Fair will be an opportunity to connect with many of the region's innovative producers of plants and food.  

According to Anna Morrison of The Battery Conservancy:

"We started out planning this Fair after reading the article about Slow Flowers in Modern Farmer and thinking about the connections between horticulture and agriculture in our own park.  Your work is such an inspiration and we would be very happy if you would pass along the opportunity to members in the Northeast region. As this is our first of many seasonal market fairs, we are not charging any fees to the vendor nor a percent of sales."

An Innovative Showcase for Local Flowers & Food

This June, The Battery Conservancy will celebrate the grand opening of The Battery Oval with a weekend fair to engage the public in  our region’s biodiversity and its emerging food and plant producers.
The Battery Conservancy has created The Fair to fulfill the following goals:
– Showcase innovations in agriculture, horticulture, food, and craft.
– Emphasize the connections between food production and plant production.
– Support and connect small batch entrepreneurs in the Northeast region.
The Fair will feature small batch purveyors who are defining alternative, sustainable systems of natural production without compromising taste and beauty.  
Interested? Here's what to do:
Participation is voluntary but we encourage a group of Slow Flowers members to get together and claim a booth to showcase the NYC-Hudson-Long Island-New Jersey-Connecticut region of local flowers! Timing is tight, so if you're interested, please contact:
