Original Los Angeles Flower Market

OUR ROOTS GO WAY BACK

Historically speaking, The Original Los Angeles Flower Market has a proud heritage and family history that span nearly an entire century.

Inspired by the success of local Japanese-American growers who had established the city’s first major flower market in 1912 (the Southern California Flower Market), the organization that would ultimately be known as The Original Los Angeles Flower Market was founded in 1919 as the American Florists’ Exchange by a group of 30 enterprising European-American growers.

Seeking a more efficient way to sell and distribute their freshly grown, highly perishable flowers to local florists and nurseries, the fledgling American Florists’ Exchange set up shop in a garage on Winston Street near Fifth.
