Spotted some buds outside of Hawthorne Valley Farm Store in Ghent!
It’s springtime and everything seems to be coming up roses! Farmers markets are popping up (and u-pick farms are welcoming us hobby harvesters -- asparagus is up first!), live, outdoor music is making a comeback, COVID-19 capacity restrictions are gradually being lifted -- including in our beloved restaurants of New York City. Places of business and entertainment are opening once again and for that reason, we’re in a May “Budding” State of Mind. New York: Hang on to your mask, though. All of this is great news, but we still have to keep safety in mind.

May is for graduations and we’re so excited to see so many commencement ceremonies happening in person! Our Marketplace is packed with great gifts for graduates, like this Custom Graduation Necklace made by AsOne Jewelry, as well as spring essentials and some new product drops too! Click here to take a look.
On our Magazine this month, we will be getting to know some of our blossoming makers more and sharing their stories with you: Poy Kritchaya Twitchsri-Granati of Summer Space Studio, literally a paper flower making passion turned full-time career; Eva Hayes of Lucky Bug Clothing, a line of ethically produced bamboo baby clothing hand sewn in New York; and our brand new maker Lily Walla of Spots NYC, delicious, customizable baked goods. In addition, our May “Budding” edition would not be complete without a list of our favorite New York flower farms to visit!
April showers did in fact bring May flowers this year, and we are reveling in the sensory delight their blooms bring (along with some allergy sneezes to make it real)! Enjoy New York in its latest spring wardrobe!!!
