There's an array of vibrant markets throughout Brisbane that cater for everyday items and, as I've only recently discovered, Brisbane is also home to a market dedicated to supplying patrons with the freshest, seasonal flowers. Open to the public and commercial buyers 6 days a week, the Brisbane Flower Market at Rocklea supply a large selection of freshly cut flowers that can be purchased in pre-designed arrangements, bunches or use your creative talents to hand-pick single flowers and design a tasteful arrangement that's exclusively yours.
Flowers are an ideal way to convey an unspoken message of love, congratulations, commiserations, apology, welcome and an affordable gift idea that will brighten someone's day and let them know how much you mean to them. Likewise, it's not uncommon for people to purchase a bunch of flowers for themselves in order to uplift their spirit and add colour and fragrance to their home.
Sebastian is the owner of one of the wholesale supplier companies, Brisbane Market Flowers (not to be confused with the name of the market). Sebastian creates affordable flower arrangements for individual and corporate customers and specialised wedding flower packages. You can speak with him personally at the market or order online. Sebastian works alongside his daughter and also offers workshops for people wanting to learn how to make their own professional flower arrangements.
Located on Sherwood Road, Rocklea, the Brisbane Flower Market is open to the public and commercial buyers 6 days a week. Opening hours are Monday to Friday 5am to 3pm and Saturday 6am to 1pm (closed on public holidays). There is plenty of on-site parking and entry is free.
Whatever flower you're after, be it roses, chrysanthemums, lilies, carnations, sweet-peas, sunflowers, tulips, etcetera, you'll find what you're looking for at the Brisbane Flower Market.
