Gardening Talks

Green Elephant Sale

Whatever you call it, a garage sale, a rummage sale, or a re-purposing event, it’s a great opportunity to pick up gently used tools, pots, books, trellises and more at bargain prices while benefiting the Master Gardener program.

Information Tables

Get your gardening questions answered by Master Gardeners at our Information Tables. Bring plants samples to our Hotline LIVE! table for diagnosis, learn about waterwise plants, animal pest control, tool care, and more.

Vendor Fair

Lining Main Street will be 40+ booths ranging from plant nurseries, gardening societies, urban farmers, beekeepers and conservation groups to vendors of containers and raised beds, apparel, mosaics and even chicken coops. List of vendors


Let our Plant Daycare watch your purchases while you browse the vendor fair, attend gardening talks, have lunch from the gourmet food trucks, or simply enjoy the sights of beautiful History San Jose.


The Spring Garden Market is sponsored by the Friends of Master Gardeners of Santa Clara County to benefit the UCCE Master Gardens of Santa Clara Valley program. We're pleased to have History San Jose and San Jose Mercury News as supporters of our Market.
