The Green Market @ Boon Lay will be held at Boon Lay Community Centre and will host over 25 booths that will excite your inner gardening geek.

The Green Market @ Boon Lay will feature booths selling locally grown vegetables for you to taste some of our local fresh produce. You might even be surprised by the wide selection of veggies grown in Singapore. You can also find new plants to spruce up your home with potted plants from Little Botany, The Plant People, Greenfingers Singapore, Chengtai Nursery and more. 


You’ll also be able to stock up on some of your gardening necessities and tools at the market. If you’re looking to repot some of your plants, make sure you check out Soil Social which makes microbiologically-diverse compost that is healthier for your plants and will help them thrive.
