Out And About: Farmgirl Flowers

On a buying [botanicals] mission to the San Francisco Flower Market for an upcoming event, Natalia and I encountered Farmgirl Flowers by sheer chance.  Their stand, unlike others at the mart, is a full fledged studio composed of work tables, unique vessels and locally sourced vibrant botanicals.  Daily floral arrangements are artfully composed with seasonal materials, ultimately wrapped in burlap and delivered to businesses and residences throughout San Francisco via bicycles, remaining true to this company's mission:  simple, local and beautiful.   Not only has the owner and founder Christina Stembel realized her dream of  being an eco-conscious and affordable florist, she also created a super cool work environment for her talented employees.  Take a good look:
