Really nothing compares to the San Francisco Flower market (and Brannan Street Wholesale flowers within it). The abundance, selection, variety is endless and completely amazing in that place. This is a HUGE understatement. The SF Flower mart is a paradise I tell you!
Needless to say, it’s a whole different story a few states over. I’m moments away from befriending someone from parks department, just so I can get a handle on all the Acorn and Magnolia they are trimming back and shedding..I’d love to use it.
I’m still adjusting to what I am able to get from the flower warehouse we have account with for the restaurant. I’m hearing quite a bit of : It’s not in season.
Secretly, I know this to be true. Secretly, I also know everything is in season somewhere. Alas, it’s for the best. Always to use what is growing now: in California (where most of it comes from).
And though my floral rep.had no idea as to what I was talking about when I said : Do you have any tall bunches of figs-on-the-stem? She did mention she had some blooming Eucalyptus this week, and I was quick to say:
Yes, please, I’ll take 5 bunches.
