Explore the new Flower Market

25/01/2017 - 10:09

On Monday 3 April our brand new Flower Market will open. We're creating a more inspiring place for you to buy beautiful flowers, plants, foliage and sundries. A more fitting place for our wholesalers to sell them.

Explore the new Flower Market now in our guide for customers and florists. This explains all about the new market and how it works. From day one, you’ll be ready to continue buying, seamlessly, from your favourite wholesalers.

Located just along Nine Elms Lane from the current market, the new Flower Market remains in the heart of London and is a modern, bright and pleasant space for buying and selling flowers, plants, foliage and sundries. A more vibrant place with more buzz.

Covered parking available allows you to load orders protected from the elements, which means no more damp flower heads. Bright lights let you see each petal in high definition, so you can handpick only the best for your customers. A warm café, that is not chilled, will be a cosier place to visit during those early mornings.

But not everything in the new Flower Market will be different. It will still be home to your favourite market wholesalers, as well as a dozen contract florists. The things you love; the energy, the spirit, the community and the banter. These, the essence of the market, all stay.

I lived and worked in the Washington. D.C. area from 1978-1995. On a personal holiday in 1886 I spent a week in London and one morning arranged a taxi to take me to what was then The New Covent Gardens. I chose a Tuesday about 4:30 AM and was given a complete tour of the place. Having worked in the wholesale flower market in Washington for those years I was interested in learning how they did what I did at work. My guide, George, gave me a ride back to my hotel, Park Lane, when he was on his way home. Great memories.

Hi Pete. So nice to hear your memories of the market, sounds like you had a great visit!

Hi

My contractors have been delivering into the market for many, many years.

We have always worked with the system of the porters offloading our flowers and taking them to the stands.

May I ask if this will still be the situation.

Also, where may I find all traders stand numbers for my delivery notes?

Thank you

Donna Lamoureux

Hi Donna Unloading will work

Hi Donna
Unloading will work just the same in the new market as it does in the current one, with porters offloading flowers and taking them to stands. You can find all the traders' stand numbers on a map of the Flower Hall in the new market here: http://brand.newcoventgardenmarket.com/flower-market
I hope this helps, do let me know if you've got any other questions :)
