Lunar New Year Flower Market (251-111)

Sat, Jan 24, 10:00am--3:00pm

Lunar New Year Flower Market Turns 10

To celebrate the Year of the Ox, the San Francisco Botanical Garden Society will host its 10th Annual Lunar New Year Flower Market this January in the County Fair Building’s spacious gallery at 9th Avenue and Lincoln Way. There will be a bounty of traditional New Year plants for sale, with blossoms that symbolize prosperity, good luck, and the fresh start of a New Year. Expect to find azaleas, narcissus, kumquats, Buddha Hand trees, orchids and African violets, among many others.

The Market is not only a plant sale, however. Attendees can browse booths of beautiful handcrafted items, sample the delicious foods for sale, see a performance by the West Coast Lion Dance Troupe, and take a docent-guided tour of the San Francisco Botanical Garden. Children will also enjoy fan painting and origami activity stations, as well as special Asian-themed story readings in the Helen Crocker Russell Library.

A wonderful alternative to the crowded bustle of the downtown New Year celebrations, the Market has gained popularity in its first decade as a place for all San Franciscans to celebrate an important tradition. “This is the time of year for the community and the neighbors of the SFBG to come together to celebrate with great hopes for the coming year,” says Ernie Ng, event co-organizer and SFBGS Docent.

Admission to the Flower Market is free and the event is open to the public.
