Early morning flower market buying

One of the things I love most about being a florist is the early mornings. I’ve been in this industry over 10 years now and with two children under 3, I am no stranger to little sleep and early starts.

I get out of bed at 3.30am so I can ensure a good parking spot at Flemington markets. We all stand patiently outside chatting with other florists and friends about upcoming weddings and events and then they open the doors…and it’s on! I love rushing around looking for those finishing touches that will make my next event perfect. Finally, once I’m happy I have everything I need, I order a very strong coffee and chat with a few growers and all of this happens even before the sun comes up. It is my most favourite time of the day. 🙂
