First Farmers Market

First Farmers Market 16

This week we enjoyed huge success at our first Port Coquitlam Farmers Market.

We had a great time offering our Sweet Pea stems to all that passed by and it was gratifying to see everyone swoon at their scent.  Those who had never experienced the smell of Sweet Peas  were really enchanted.  For others the smell was very nostalgic of the past, which was actually quite emotional for some.

We also enjoyed taking time to get to know our customers and answer their questions:

Q: “Are they (floral arrangements) real?”
A: We’ve organically grown each flower from seed, harvested and arranged each vase individually.  They don’t get any more real – the blisters on my hands are a testament to that.

Q: “Where do your flowers come from.”
A: We grow them on our small farm on Kennedy Rd. in Pitt Meadows which happens to be 7km from the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market.

Q: “Do you produce floral designs for weddings and how can we buy your flowers besides at the market?”
A: Yes, we still have spaces available for custom floral design for Weddings and events for this summer/fall.  You can also find our flowers at our farm gate stand on Kennedy Rd.  or contact us to make a special bouquet .

We’d also like to give a shout out to our week’s favorite market vendors:
Double Trouble Creations – who was a great “neighbor” with the most amazing cookies – we are still having Snickerdoodle dreams
Mom and Me Pies – wonderful ladies, divine pies.
Montakarn Winery – shockingly good wine.

Dessert, wine and flowers – this is a piece of the good life!  See you at the Port Coquitlam Farmers Market this Thursday 3pm-7pm.
