Spring will soon be blooming somewhere in Utah, and that place is the Utah Flower Market in Pleasant Grove. Each week, from April to October, 15 local flower farmers bring their best and most beautiful blooms to Grove Station in Pleasant Grove to sell to florists and to the public.
With flowers being sourced locally, the flowers sold at the market change with the seasons – even week-to-week. Throughout the season customers will find specialty narcissus, tulips, peonies, ranunculus, garden roses, sunflowers, lisianthus, cosmos, dahlias as well as hundreds of other unique and delightful varieties of flowers and foliage.
President of the Utah Flower Market, Julie Hall said that those who shop at the Market not only purchase quality flowers, but by doing so, they are helping the local economy and ecosystems.
“You can’t help but feel good when you come to the Utah Flower Market,” Hall said. “ It’s amazing to be surrounded by an abundance of flowers and to connect with the farmers and flower lovers who come to the market. When you shop the market you are supporting local farmers, small businesses, and local ecosystems. We know our customers feel really good about the flowers they take home, and are excited to share them with their clients and the people they love.”
The Utah Flower Market will officially open its second season on Wednesday, April 19 at Grove Station in Pleasant Grove.
The market is open to wholesale customers from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. and then open to everyone from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Customers can purchase flowers in 10-stem bunches or they can shop the flower bar and create their own custom bouquets.
Grove Station also has rotating food trucks and a soda shop available on Wednesdays during the public market.
If you want more connection and beauty in your life come to the Utah Flower Market weekly from April 19 to October 4 this year.
