Ward’s Supermarket stocks edibles and ornamentals from several local nurseries, including Firefly Farms and Dewar Nurseries. As the seasons progress and change, so does our variety. You’ll have new surprises waiting for you each visit. From beautiful flowers, to succulents and indigenous species, to fruit and olive trees and bushes designed to grow well in our local climate, we strive to offer a variety of plants and herbs. We also offer Soil Food, made locally by Gainesville Compost. Soil Food relies on compost to nurture the plants and also helps the planet by reducing waste.
We receive plant deliveries 5-6 days per week, so there will always be plenty of gorgeous, healthy plants to choose from. Our collection is so extensive that Alachua County listed Ward’s as a resource on their Gardening 101 sheet.
Our live plants include fruit trees and vegetable plants that are manageable for almost anyone. We give sunlight suggestions on each plant and would love to help point you in the right direction. We have a wide variety, including broccoli and more.
Ward’s Supermarket proudly offers herbs that are locally grown. Most of our herbs come from Firefly Farm. Our herb section, which can be found on the right side of the storefront, includes a wide selection of herbs to season your foods or use around the house.
In addition to plants and herbs, we also stock seasonal items such as pumpkins and gourds in our plant section. Don’t miss out on these incredible deals.
