National Cathedral Flower Mart this Friday and Saturday
The first Flower Mart, held in 1939, was 
a handful of  booths with jaunty green 
and white striped awnings lining the 
Pilgrim steps.  It is said that Mrs. Woodrow 
Wilson was in one of those booths 
selling fruits and vegetables.  Since then, 
eight "First Ladies" have opened or 
 attended Flower Mart.  I

Admission is free and guests will enjoy
 music, dance, rides and games, vendors 
and flower booths selling a wide variety 
of herbs, annuals and Proceeds benefit 
the gardens and grounds of Washington 
National Cathedral.
