Need Suggestions in finding a flower vendor

trillium28June 6, 2006


I'm new to this site and its great to read all this wonderful information.

I am in search of any suggestions or ideas in finding a flower vendor for our small market. We are too small for the larger growers, been there tried that. That's why I believe a smaller grower may be right for us.

Are you looking to sell flowers or to buy flowers.

Hi Trillium,
I am a cut-flower grower in Northern IL, currently involved with several markets in the Chicago area. I have heard, from other market mgrs that we cut-flower growers are not too easy to find in this area! Perhaps you could share more info about your market - where is it, day and hrs of operation, traffic flow, etc. It is a bit late to be looking for someone for this season, as most growers are already committed to markets and began planning crops, quantities, etc a number of months ago. On the other hand, sometimes a market will just not work out as expected for a grower, or circumstances will force a change in market schedules.
More information is needed from you!
