Professional floral buyers are able to place advance orders to reserve products for future needs
Placing an online order is not required to shop at the Seattle Wholesale Growers Market! We work hard to maintain a plentiful selection on the sales floor throughout the week. Our growers deliver multiple times per week during the growing season, and many customers find shopping from the market floor to be their preferred way to shop.
If you would like to place an advance order, we ask for at least two weeks lead time to source your requested product. With the increased floral demand, we may not be able to accept any week-of requests for floor pulls or pre-orders due to seasonal product limitations. This includes any requests after close of business on Friday of the previous week. Growers are already harvesting as much as possible, so please plan to shop from the market floor if you have not placed an order prior to this cut off.
Are you a professional floral business with an account already registered with us? If not, please Learn about getting a Buyer’s Pass. Do not place an order if you are not a professional floral business with a registered account. Public customers are not able to special order any products. Please contact a local florist if you have specific needs for items for a specific date.
Due to the high volume of weddings and orders during the growing season, we recommend placing pre-orders as early as possible for specific varieties needed. Please be mindful that certain items are limited, so prepare your clients that they have flexibility, and substitutions in mind. We are always happy to suggest alternatives to achieve a similar look.

Cancellation of Special Orders and Pre-Orders
It is important for buyers enrolled with SWGMC to understand that there are no cancellations allowed once an order period closes. As a buyer, You know that our farms are harvesting specifically to fill each individual order. Cancellations after an order period closes may result in the farm having to discard or otherwise lose sales on product set aside for Your order. Because of this, buyers may be charged a cancellation fee of up to 100% of the product total. We appreciate your understanding.
Commercial accounts will require a 50% deposit on all orders which will be cancellable up until 14 days prior to the order pickup, at which point refunds and cancellations will be on a case by case basis. Orders we are unable to cancel with growers will remain the customers’ responsibility. To learn more about out Cancellation Policy and Substitution Policy Click HERE.
