Tewksbury Florist makes community market greener | New

TEWKSBURY – In recent weeks, the Tewksbury Community Market has welcomed nearly 40 vendors to its latest markets. Among the vendors in attendance was Tewksbury Florist and Greenery.

Located on Main Street in Tewksbury, Tewksbury Florist and Greenery is a regular vendor at the Community Market, appearing at numerous locations throughout the season this year, as well as years past.

The business started in the 1950s as a family-owned flower stand, supplying much of the business of owner Gaetano Colantuonio’s father in Wakefield. Over time, Colantunonio’s business has grown from a small seasonal store to a year-round operation, with greenhouses to support plant growth in all seasons.

The business has remained in the family, with members of the third generation currently operating the business as it is today.

There are eight greenhouses on site, allowing Greenery to prepare for the seasons and the holidays to come by growing a variety of notable annuals, perennials and seasonal plants, such as poinsettias. In addition to plants, The Greenery also has a range of gifts including flags, stepping stones, and other garden accessories.
