The first annual Four Seasons Spring Plant Market was was held on Sunday morning at the Longford Village Green.
The community were joined by residents from Launceston and neighbouring towns to celebrate the beginning of spring with more than 40 stallholders offering food, coffee, homewares and an array of plants.
Natives, succulents and ornamental plants were all on offer along with outdoor ornaments pots and garden furniture.
Rotary Passport Club of Tasmania president Sandy Astill said the market was the first of four events the club planned to hold each year to celebrate the beginning of the growing season.
"We wanted to run a signature event that would benefit the health and wellbeing of the local citizens," she said.
"Just take a look around, it's outside, it's in the garden and the sun is out, it's a hit."
Year 12 student Amy Golest was one of the stallholders who was excited to experience an event that focused on horticultural produce.
The budding businesswoman and co-owner of A+A Flora said she started a dried flowers business as a way to repurpose disused flowed from her second job as a florist.
"I just couldn't stand to see the flows going to waste and I wanted to do something to give them a second life," she said.
Ms Golest said the stall was still a part-time project, but after successfully running her third market she was starting to transition the hobby into a business.
She said after working in a recent market she was approached by a customer to design custom bouquets for their wedding.

The business has become something of a family affair with Ms Golest father sourcing old pots for her to upcycle, and her grandmother growing the hydrangeas that she dries and sells.
Danielle Watkins was another stallholder selling plants and garden ornaments.
She jumped at the opportunity to have a stall in the spring market after hearing about the event from a Rotarian.
She said the Spring Plant Market was the third event she was scheduled to work in as many weeks, which has seen the hobby transform into a business.
"I've got three markets booked over three weeks and the business is only five months old so I would definitely say it's a small business now," she said.
