It’s Always Springtime at the Flower Market
Visiting the Chelsea Flower Market in Manhattan is about stepping into a hive of fragrance and color, the ultimate florist’s destination, and a pretty good spot for passersby to pick up a lush vase arrangement for the foyer.
The NYBG's Continuing Education Department recently sponsored a workshop in the Market headed up by Floral Design graduate Maureen Laning, keen to take advantage of the many generations-old flower stalls and florist shops that line West 28th Street. It's one of the few places in the city where doing business hasn't changed in decades, making it something of a city treasure for those who know about it.
As with the best meat, fish, and produce markets, the professionals are already hitting their go-to suppliers well before sun-up, but everyone else is welcome to take advantage of the market as well (generally after 8 a.m.); unlike many wholesale operations, you don’t need a license to shop there. —MN
