Flower Market Awards
The Flower Market Awards are an annual award which aim is to give industry recognition to the incredible work and inspiring businesses run by our Flower Market customers, and to the sterling job of our wholesalers who work crazy hours to support them.
If you are a customer of New Covent Garden Flower Market then this is your perfect chance not only to blow your own trumpet but also to sing the praises of your favourite wholesaler.
There are 2 categories in the Flower Market Awards to get involved in:
Florist of the Year
Open to all Flower Market customers, this category salutes florists who have been able to combine excellence in floristry expertise with a strong grasp of how to run a successful business.
It's not size that matters here - you could be a sole trader or employing dozens - nor is the nature of your work important. Instead, you need to be able to demonstrate great design skill, fantastic use of fresh materials alongside an effective strategy to develop your business.

Wholesaler of the Year
Now, this is the bit where you get to vote for your favourite Flower Market wholesaler. If you think one of your suppliers deserves recognition for doing a particularly brilliant job in supporting your business, then nominate them now online.
They are all in the running: flower wholesalers, foliage specialists, sundries traders and plant wholesalers. They all work crazy hours to bring the pick of the world's growers and producers to London - but which one is your personal favourite?
