We get our fresh flowers here on Saturdays. Kind of an amazing place. Closes by noon. Great Street vendor food now too.

Step into one of the largest flower warehouses where most of Southern California's flowers are sold to flower stands up and down the coast. The smell and colors are memories you will never forget!

I come here every month. It's amazing. It will cost you 1$ to walk around, and it closes at noon - but it's an amazing feeling to walk around thousands of flowers for sale - all for super cheap.
