Stojinski named head of Flower Mart

March 01, 1994|By From Staff Reports

The Sykesville Business Association has selected Frank Stojinski as chairman for its Flower Mart, scheduled for May 1.

Mr. Stojinski, association treasurer and owner of A Cup Above Coffee Service, will work with a three-member committee to organize the event.

Although he is new to the flower mart business, Mr. Stojinski said he is looking forward to organizing Sykesville's first such event.

"I have never done anything like this before," he said. "We would like to make it an annual event."

The association will rent space on the McElroy parking lot, off the 7500 block of Main St., to about 50 flower and produce vendors, who will sell their wares from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

"We chose a Sunday so we wouldn't take away parking from businesses on Saturday," said Craig Taylor, association president. "After church traffic, the lots are fairly empty."

Mr. Taylor said the association scheduled the market to coincide with Mother's Day shopping and "the time when most people begin thinking about their yards."

Only flowers and fresh produce will be available.

"This will be an old-fashioned, low-key celebration," he said.

Anyone interested in reserving space should call Mr. Stojinski.
