Treat Your Mom to Union Square this Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day falls on Sunday, May 10th, and we’ve got the ultimate guide for finding the perfect gift for the occasion. From fresh flowers to spa treatments, we’ve got you covered with ideas sure to make mom smile.

Gift Ideas

Union Square Greenmarket Flowers
Make sure you pick up flowers from the legendary Union Square Greenmarket in the Park’s North Plaza, directly from the producers. Some vendors include:


  • LocalRoses, the last commercial rose grower on Long Island, at the Greenmarket on Mondays and Fridays.
  • Race Farms, a fourth-generation family farm in New Jersey, at the Greenmarket on Mondays. Farmer Ryan Race recommends getting mom a perennial such as a bleeding heart, as it will continue to bloom for years.

In addition to the Greenmarket, the Union Square neighborhood has plenty of gift options including sweet treats, spa deals, and fine wines.
