Two years ago, while shopping for clients at the SF Flower Mart, I stumbled upon Farmgirl Flowers. The booth immediately caught my eye since it was abuzz with creative floral energy. Botanical arrangements were being arranged with locally grown materials to be delivered throughout San Francisco via bicycle. With my trusty camera in hand, I began capturing the moment and interviewing the owner of this unique operation, and, of course, I had to blog about it.
Just this past Sunday, Farmgirl Flowers was featured in the New York Times Business section. What an amazing accomplishment! The founder and owner, Christine Stembel had a vision of supporting local farmers by selling seasonally inspired bouquets while keeping prices affordable. Is is so rewarding to witness a fellow entrepreneur get the recognition and attention she so richly deserves. Here's to ingenuity and perseverance!!!
