San Francisco is surely blooming in this most gorgeous weather! And a spot I like to pop into to see so many of these blossoms is the SF Flower Mart. This massive space takes up almost an entire square block in the SOMA area and is filled with all sorts of stem flowers, plants, containers and accessories. The mart is open Monday through Saturday and the early morning hours are reserved for wholesalers with badges, but after 10:00 AM the rest of the public can stop in and shop. Selections become very limited the later you go, so it’s best to go early. Nothing is priced, so you’ll have to ask but everything is quite reasonable. And one other thing to note is that half of the florals are imported from other countries, so if you’re all about supporting local and shopping local, just ask the vendor where their goods are grown.
