21st century version of FlowerMart is presented by Flower Mart at Mt.
Vernon, Ltd., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, which was founded in
2000. The 21st century version of FlowerMart is the continuation of a
tradition of the original Flower Mart, which was operated by a
Baltimore non-profit organization from 1911 through 1999
The original festival was the first Flower Mart in the nation. After the 1999 festival, the non-profit decided to no longer produce it. However, three people were so dismayed at its apparent demise, they decided to do something about it. These people are directly responsible for keeping Baltimore's traditional rite of spring alive after that: Governor William Donald Schaefer, Mt. Vernon attorney and first Board President Frederick Bierer, and previous President Carol Purcell. The current Board President, Karen Lease, is now in charge of perpetuating the tradition.
we are a non-profit organization, we depend on the kindness of friends
to fund the festival. We thank the following for enabling us to put on
FlowerMart in 2017 and several prior years for the benefit of the citizens of Baltimore City and
