Doing the Sale
This is a map of the 2021 sale, which is now past. Watch for information on the 2022 sale starting in December 2021.
The sale will be in the huge parking lot that’s the Midway during the State Fair. It’s several times larger than the Grandstand. Aisles will be much wider than usual, and the number of shoppers at a time will be one-quarter as many or less. (Find out more details about what it will be like at this larger, outdoor sale here.)
Enter the parking area Dan Patch (which is called Commonwealth if you are coming from the west). Park on the west end of the big parking lot. Shoppers will enter from the west end of the fenced-in plant sale area.
Detailed maps will be handed out at the sale entrance, showing where individual plants by catalog number are located.
