Annual Tree Sale - Saturday May 7th - Rain or Shine


The Wait is Over...

It's the biggest.  It's the best.  And it only happens once a year!

The MRFC Annual Fruit Tree Sale is tomorrow - RAIN or SHINE!

WHEN:  Saturday, May 7th, 2022 •  9 AM - 3 PM

WHERE:  Premier Sports Campus, 5895 Post Blvd, Lakewood Ranch, FL  34211

The venue is outdoors, so please make sure to bring what you need to stay cool and protected from the sun.  The sale site is a huge open area (225 feet by 650 feet) that will provide plenty of room for our vendors and customers to spread out. The facility has ample parking and restrooms.

WHO:  A selection of the best vendors in central and south Florida. Vendors will bring the best stock available that is suitable for growing conditions in this part of Florida.  Arrive early for the best selection.

Vendors will be accepting payment directly for their own sales -- and many will be accepting credit cards, but it's best to bring cash just in case, so that you don't miss out on your favorite must-have trees.  There will be no ATM available at the site.

Make sure to bring your cart or wheelbarrow, if you have one, to make it easier to move about the site.  There is no "Holding Area" this year.  If you need a plant held, please ask individual vendors about their policy.

Please visit the Manatee Rare Fruit Council table to ask your fruit growing questions and to talk about MRFC membership.

 There will also be fertilizer, t-shirts, and copies of the MRFC fruit cookbook available for purchase.

We hope to see you at this year's Rare Tree Sale!

Come early for the best selection and bring a wagon or cart, if you have one, to help carry your plants as you shop.

We're never sure what plants our vendors will bring, but there will be thousands of trees and other plants that have been selected to perform well in Central Florida.

Each year our sale is a huge success. This is a wonderful opportunity to purchase fruit trees, meet other fruit growers, and even join the MRFC.
