What You Need To Know About Shopping in the LA Flower District

  • Expect savings of up to 70% on bulk flowers and 30%-70% on arrangements and bouquets.
  • Most vendors and parking in this areas are CASH ONLY. There are ATMs located inside the markets.
  • Most fresh-cut flowers are sold in bulk – 1 or 2 dozen at a time.

How to Buy the Freshest Flowers

  • Look for straight, firm stems. Discoloration or slime can indicate bacteria and split or curved stems are signs that the flowers are old.
  • Buy flowers with buds that are just beginning to open. Flowers, especially roses, travel a long journey to reach the markets. Those in full bloom have already reached their peak. The exception to this rule is the Gerbera Daisy, which will look like its in full bloom, and tulips, which should be purchased while the bulb is still fully closed.
  • Avoid flowers with loose pollen or seeds. They are past their peak.
  • More insider tips for first time flower market buyers, here.

Flower Care Tips

If you buy bulk flowers, please note they have not been processed. You will need to give them a little TLC to maximize their life span.

  • Remove the flowers from their packaging before placing them in a vase.
  • Remove excess leaves and cut the stems before placing them in water.
  • Keep your flowers in a cool place, away from direct sunlight.

Coral Forest art installation debuts in the Fashion District

Coral Forest Art Installation in Downtown L.A.

Art in Downtown L.A. is about to get a lot BIGGER! The LA Fashion District is excited to announce the official debut of the Coral Forest art installation, an interactive art piece by Los Angeles-based artist Doron Gazit. The Coral Forest art installation is composed of 10 separate larger-than-life-size pieces that can be reconfigured and displayed in various ways. The inflatable art piece uses air as a medium and explores how people interact with the element.

The public is invited to walk through, touch, and take selfies with the art.

View Coral Forest every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at THE WALL Farmer’s Market, located on Wall Street between 7th and 8th Streets in Downtown L. A. The installation will be set up in front of the So Cal Flower Market at 755 Wall St.

Doron Gazit is an environmental artist and industrial designer who focuses his art on air, line, and color. He has done art installations internationally and is based out of Los Angeles. His work has been featured everywhere from the New York Convention Center to the Dead Sea. Learn more about the artist and his work on July 14, 2016 during Downtown Art Walk. Gazit will be speaking about his work and inspiration for Coral Forest at Preux & Proper, where the art installation will also be displayed.

The piece was commissioned by the LA Fashion District Business Improvement District (BID) and curated by Carmen Zella as part of the Fashion District’s space activation initiative. Our goal is to take underutilized and/or less trafficked areas of the LA Fashion District and use art and culture to bring the community together around these spaces. By doing so, we hope to illustrate the full-potential of these streets and what a truly vibrant Downtown L.A. community looks like. The Coral Forest art installation is a mobile art piece and will be installed at various locations throughout the LA Fashion District this summer.

See our previous space activation projects here and here.
