Rosslyn Flower Market
April showers are bringing May flowers to Rosslyn (virtually and in-person) this spring!
Roses are red, violets are blue, if you’re looking for fresh flowers, Rosslyn is here for you! With spring in full bloom, the Rosslyn BID is continuing Rosslyn Refresh with a series of outdoor flower markets. Rosslyn Flower Market will bring local plant, herb, and flower vendors to Central Place Plaza, Saturdays April 24 - May 8.
But the series doesn’t end after your stop at the market! Head home to join virtual workshops including plant care basics with Rewild, a cocktail demonstration with your new fresh herbs from Salt, and Mother’s Day floral arranging with Blue Ribbon Floral Truck. Plus, look for the Rosslyn Flower Cart throughout the neighborhood on April 22, April 29, May 5 and May 6 for special giveaways to get you in the spring spirit!
Restaurant Specials & Giveaways
As a bonus, there will be a special plant-based giveaway for each day of the flower market. To enter, eat at a Rosslyn restaurant the day of the market (April 24, May 1 or May 8), and the first 50 to show a receipt to a BID Ambassador at the flower market will receive the special gift!
Additionally, if you buy from a vendor at the market, show your purchase to a Rosslyn BID Ambassador on the way out of the market to receive a special seed packet that can be used as a coupon for a 10% discount at the nearby Bethesda Bagels (1851 N Moore St).
