Minnesota’s infamous farmer’s markets are more than a place to pick out the freshest edible crops, they’re also the perfect spot to find a bevy of freshly cut flowers. Here’s your guide for finding some beautiful bouquets. 

St. Paul Farmer’s Market

290 5th St E,
St Paul, MN
651-227-6856

For over 150 years the St. Paul Farmer’s Market has been delivering fresh produce to the city’s people. St. Paul Growers’ Association, Inc operates the market and restricts offerings to locally grown produce which makes the market easy to access and navigate. As the weather warms, the St. Paul Farmer’s Market bounces back to life and bouquets of flowers aren’t far behind. Watch for vibrantly colored wildflowers, flower plants and mums.

Since 1989 Market Flowers has been present at the Minneapolis Farmers Market in stall #403. After some contemplation, the company went through some changes and expanded into what is best described as a DIY (do it yourself) operation. Customers can stop by the Market Flowers facility to choose from a selection of flowers then design and store their bouquets for their special event.
