Rittenhouse Square Flower Market Benefits Turning Points for Children

This May 4 and 5, you can support the work of Turning Points for Children and brighten the lives of children and families in a unique way with your purchases at the Rittenhouse Square Flower Market.

Turning Points for Children is both proud and grateful to be among the beneficiaries of the 97th annual Rittenhouse Square Flower Market for Children’s Charities (RSFMCC). The organization hosts its signature French flower market in Philadelphia’s Rittenhouse Square, for the benefit of four annually-changing children’s health and welfare service organizations, as well as for the maintenance of the Square.
The Flower Market on Wednesday, May 4, and Thursday, May 5, is from 8 AM to 5 PM. A Garden Party will be Sunday, April 3, from 4PM to 6 PM.

At The Flower Market, Committee members, beneficiaries, nonprofit and commercial vendors sell brightly-colored flowering standing and hanging plants, flower-related crafts and savory herbs.

This year, to further mark their 97th anniversary, the Flower Market bringing back the nostalgic red-and-white banjo striped tents.  The Flower Market will be dedicated to a celebration of Mothers (and Fathers, Grandparents, etc.) and Children, and will be held during the week immediately preceding, and as a tribute to, Mother’s Day.

Another major addition to the Market is the “Children’s Resource Center” section.  The market is making space available to other notable, worthy charities providing services, education and recreation to at-risk children in the Philadelphia area.  These charities will be showcased starting at the goat corner of the Square.

The Flower Market days mark the culmination of a year-long project for these beneficiaries, in which their advisory boards, their constituents and their volunteers work together to plan their booth, order and/or create their products, and sell them in a colorful, fragrant arena.
