West Village is already one of the greenest parts of West End, and now it's letting you take some plants home with you. No, you can't raid the precinct's garden — but you can browse the stalls at the spot's returning Plant Market.

Looking for something leafy to sit on your window sill? A statement plant for your back deck? Terrariums and kokedamas to place (and hang) wherever fits? Then you're headed to the right place. Keen on ceramics to spice up your shelves? Succulents and cacti, because they brighten up any space? Good ol' fashioned flowers, just because? Again, you'll find them here.

The long list of participants includes All the Green Things, Harris Farm Markets, Elle's Balcony Garden, Billeta Ceramics Succulent Mummas, Makers of Something Special, Luvia Designs and Craft Chino.

The market will also include workshops, as well as live tunes.

Just head on down to the free event from 10am–2pm on Sunday, August 28 — and if you have some plants at home that don't quite suit, you can bring them along to the onsite greenery adoption centre. It works the other way, too, so you can pick up a plant that someone else didn't want and take it home with you for free.
