What the Tour Covers

We offer pri­vate and group flower mart tours of the down­town Los Ange­les Flo­ral Dis­trict — affec­tion­ate­ly known as “the LA Flower Mart.” We tour the South­ern Cal­i­for­nia Flower Mar­ket and The Orig­i­nal Los Ange­les Flower Market.

In addi­tion to show­ing you how to find fresh flow­ers, we teach you buy­ing eti­quette. We show you where to find flo­ral sup­plies around the mar­ket area and the safest place to park while shop­ping. We offer over 20 years of shop­ping the mar­ket expe­ri­ence so you’ll feel con­fi­dent and wel­come to shop again and again.

Tour through the 100-year-old Flower Markets of Los Angeles

The two main mar­kets that make up the LA Flower Dis­trict are over 100 years old. They make up the largest whole­sale flower dis­trict in the Unit­ed States AND the are open to the pub­lic through a joint program.

Once you sign up for your reserved spot on our guid­ed tour, we’ll send you an email to tell you where we meet at the mart at an easy-to-find location.

Flower Duet has offered tours of the LA Flower Dis­trict since the late 1990s when they opened up to allow the pub­lic to shop at the whole­sale marts. We paused over the last few years dur­ing the COVID break but are not offer­ing them again a few Sat­ur­days per year. We had a tour in August of 2023 and our next tour is Octo­ber 14, 2023.
