As if choosing from those selections won’t be difficult enough, baked goods also will be available from the family behind the Braker’s Dozen, and you can take home some tasty treats, courtesy of the produce from Coneflower Farms near Princeton.
Something else you’ll want to keep your eyes peeled for is the work of rock-balancing artist, Matt Denault of Princeton. He’ll be set up throughout the gardens and waterfalls, and his unique rock art will keep you wondering how it stays in place.
This also is a good time to wander around Hornbaker Gardens and see what they have for sale. According to office manager Marcia Jaggers, many varieties of hydrangeas, trees and grasses will put on a show, and fall annuals will be sold so you can spruce up your gardens or containers for the cooler season ahead.
“Hornbaker Gardens provides a beautiful setting for this fun day of fine artists, live music and delicious food,” she said. “Bring a lawn chair if you plan to sit a spell.”
Just don’t sit too long, or you might miss out on all the fun!
