2019 MGAP Autumn Garden Fair

FISSUL, Silves - 26 & 27 October 2019


Following the undoubted success of our Spring Garden Fair at this location, we are very pleased to be moving our ever-popular Autumn Garden Fair to this venue. This allows us to expand the space for stall-holders, provide easy free parking nearby and improve the experience for all of our visitors. We are indebted to the Freguseia of Silves and their President for enthusiastic support.



FISSUL Conference Centre,  Silves

We plan to make it easier for visitors to find the plants & products they want to buy and the sellers they want to visit, with improved signage and layout. We also aim to improve the catering available on site and provide an improved experience for everyone.

As usual, there will be a range of stall-holders, some new to our events, selling specialist and ornamental plants, trees, herbs, organic produce, books and seeds. The ever-popular Plant Crèche will also be available. A special feature will be an extensive display of ornamental orchid species suitable for Algarve gardens and shady terraces, provided by the Orchid Society of Portugal.

Keep checking for updates nearer the date. As always, we are interested to hear about good new nurseries selling plants suitable for our mediterranean gardens in Portugal .
