West Village is already one of the greenest parts of West End, and now it's letting you take some plant-life home with you. No, you can't raid the precinct's garden — but you can browse the stalls at the spot's first 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? Ceramics to spice up your shelves? Succulents and cacti, because they brighten up any space? Good ol' fashioned flowers, just because? Botanical-themed jewellery? Some cactus-shaped cookies? Thanks to a long list of participants including All the Green Things, Max and Mort, Soul Pantry, September Creative, Billeta, Luvia Designs, Succulent Mummas, and Hansel and Gretel Cakes, they're all on offer.

Just head on down to the free event from 10am–3pm on Sunday, June 16 — and if you have some plants at home that don't quite suit, could use someone else's love or you're just not feeling, you can bring them along to the onsite greenery adoption centre.

At hourly intervals, you can also learn a few tips and tricks at the Plant Market's workshops, including about potted plants, making your own plant earrings, and kokedamas — for a fee between $10–60, and with registration required.
