The 97th annual Rittenhouse Square Flower Market for Children’s Charities will take place in time for Mother’s Day on May 4 and 5 in Rittenhouse Square, this year with the nostalgic atmosphere of the red-and-white striped canopy tents of yore. While only two days a year, the Flower Market is still the BEST place to find flowering plants and herbs in Center City. Food, crafts and entertainment will be offered throughout. The 2011 Beneficiaries are ConKerr Cancer, Dignity Housing, Turning Points for Children and The Salvation Army of Greater Philadelphia. Free and open to the public from 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. Each plant purchased beautifies Philadelphia and benefits at-risk children and their families in our area. www.rittenhousesquareflowermarket.org.
