Location: The NYS Armory is located off NYS Route 13 at Hanshaw Road or Lower Creek Road. From either road, turn onto Abbott Drive for plenty of parking. The location provides one big indoor room where gardening groups will display plants and outdoor displays by growers in the parking area next to the building. It’s helpful if customers bring wagons to transport plants, however, a plant valet will be set up so once shopping is done, customers can drive up to pick up plants. Visit this MAP on our website.
