A Visit to Key West’s MARC House Plant Store

About the MARC House

The MARC House (Monroe Association for ReMARCable Citizens) is a non-profit agency that serves adult residents with developmental disabilities. The agency provides training and support for its clients in a number of ways. And, the MARC House Plant Store is one of these ways.

Located at 1401 Seminary Street in Key West, the store offers a selection of plants and garden products such as pots and fountains. The clients that work here grow plants from seedlings, repot and trim them. In addition, there is an organic garden where they grow fruit, vegetables, and herbs.

A number of plants and are carried here throughout the year, but there are seasonal products as well. The Pumpkin Patch opens every October. Pumpkins and gourds of all shapes and sizes are displayed and sold. And following Thanksgiving, the Christmas Tree Lot opens. Here, Christmas trees, wreaths, and poinsettias are sold until they are gone.

Why Visit

The MARC House Plant Store is a great place to visit if you need beautiful plants at a great price. Even if you are in no need of plants, it is a nice place to visit. The plants are gorgeous. Relax, walk around, and take in their beauty. And, shoppers can support this organization by buying something else from the shop as a souvenir. Books, ornaments, and many other things are available to be purchased in their shop.

Sometimes, I stop by to browse. Okay, I normally do come home with something. But, I like to look around for ideas too. The store is pet friendly as well, so bring along your dog if you like. I have bought plants of all types, pots, fertilizer, and pumpkins from the MARC House Plant Store. It is a great place to support. My favorite time to visit is always during the Pumpkin Patch. Temperatures are perfect and it is fun to pick out he perfect pumpkin to display.

During out last visit, some of the produce grown here was for sale. And the many tomato plants that I saw means that they are sure to have some tasty tomatoes available soon as well. What can be better than fresh produce! I am already dreaming of grilled cheese sandwiches with tomatoes and tomato salads.
