Known informally as Athens Blooms, we are a volunteer group that exists to beautify public spaces in Athens Township with flowers, for the enjoyment of residents and visitors to the community.
We plant hanging baskets, planters and flower beds every Spring and coordinate the efforts of volunteers across the community who adopt a planter or flower bed and tend it throughout the summer season.
The Athens Farmers Market Season begins May 17th and runs until October 31st.
If you have plants, produce, homemade products or crafts and are interested in a spot in our market please download the Farmers Market documents and bring them to the Municipal Office at 1 Main St. West.
The cost is $75.00 for the season and includes liability insurance. If you are only interested in a couple of days over the summer, we have daily permits for $10.00. Athens Farmers Market is a member of Farmers Markets Ontario.

The Athens Tree Committee and the Township of Athens are once again offering to Township residents a maple sapling for $20.00. The 7-9 ft balled and burlapped maple trees will be available in early May. Residents in the village may have their trees planted by student volunteers. Residents outside the village will be responsible to pick up and plant their own tree. Supply is limited and will be on a first come, first served basis.
Please sign up at the Township office by May 8th.
Please also note that self serve wood chip mulch is available at the Township garage at no charge for Township of Athens residents.
