The Flower Farm Comes to Mid-Market

Flower children are taking over the Twitter building. 

Flowers from Farmgirl Flowers

Flowers from Farmgirl Flowers 


Farmgirl Flowers is a veritable poster child of San francisco ideals: it’s local (blooms are largely sourced from Norcal farmers), sustainable (yielding less than 1 percent waste), eco-conscious (bouquets are wrapped in recycled burlap coffee sacks), borderline twee (deliveries are made by bicycle), and tech-savvy (offering streamlined online ordering).  And now it can notch one more S.F. trope in its belt: it’s opening a shop in the Twitter building.

But the bluebird out front doesn’t mean that owner Christina Stembel is forsaking her small business roots. Case in point: the daily bouquet is just $20 at the new shop (previously $35 and up online). The subway-tiled storefront also includes a DIY flower bar where shoppers can choose from six to eight seasonal varieties by the stem (from $1). This month, you’ll find bunches of ranunculus, anemones, garden roses, calla lilies, protea, and snapdragons. The Market on Market, 1355 Market St. (at 9th St.)
