The Brisbane Flower Market will ‘rose’ to the occasion during the month of love to ensure they have the very freshest flowers and the biggest range in Brisbane ahead of this Valentine’s Day.
Brisbane Flower Market spokesperson Luke Leeson says roses experienced great growing conditions this year and are set to be in high demand over Valentine’s Day.
“The cost of roses has dropped slightly this year, so customers will be able to share the love more,” he says. “We encourage prospective Valentines to pre-order online and arrange delivery.”
Largest floral hub
The Brisbane Flower Market is Queensland’s largest hub for the wholesale and retail of fresh flowers. Flowers are sourced from around Australia and overseas, and sold to customers including florists, fruit shops, the general public and retail outlets by direct sale.
The Brisbane Flower Market is open to the public from 5am weekdays and 6am on Saturdays. In addition, the Brisbane Flower Market will extend trading hours on Monday, 13 February and Tuesday, 14 February 2023 from 5am to 5pm.
Say it with flowers
Research from Australian Retailers Association (ARA), in conjunction with Roy Morgan, suggests flowers will be in “hot demand” this Valentine’s Day, identified by 42% of respondents who plan on buying a gift.
“Flowers remain the go-to gift, cementing their status as a staple of the Valentine’s Day experience. They’re a sentimental token of love and affection that can be customised and tailored to fit any budget,” says ARA CEO Paul Zahra.
