Resuming the LA Flower Market Tours with Flower Duet in 2023
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 fee confident and welcome to shop again and again.
The two main markets that make up the LA Floral 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.
We have been offering tours of the Market 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.
