The Basics

At this bustling wholesale flower market, families shop for low-cost flower arrangements for all occasions, from baptisms to funerals, and lovers purchase bags of rose petals, which are available by the pound or kilo. It's sensory overload, as the stalls are a rainbow of colors and the air is fragrant. The market’s maze of stalls can be difficult to navigate independently, and it’s worth booking a guided tour to get an insider’s perspective.
