Planning for an event? See what’s available each month at the market.
Keep in mind that harvest dates can vary as much as three weeks from year to year depending on the weather and growing conditions. Check out our Floral Calendar of Local Product that lists general flower availability by the month.
Buyer’s pass holders may place an order one week in advance using our online marketplace for orders to be picked up in the following week by selecting the orders pick-up date desired. Log-in to your online account using your Floral business email. Orders must be placed online no later than 1:00 pm on Thursday for pick up on Monday of the following week. Orders for Wednesday or Friday of the following week must be placed online no later than 1:00 pm on Friday before the order period automatically closes. Customers are welcome to come shop the floor for any orders needed during the current week from the large selection of products brought to the market for open sales.
Product selection will vary depending on the grower and the pick-up date selected. Wednesday is typically our largest delivery day of the week for receiving floral products. Orders for the same week should be planned for shopping from the market floor open stock as they are no longer available for pre-ordering.
If you need to place a futures pre-order for events more than 2 weeks out please use our Future Orders form online to source the products needed, or email us directly with your advance order to source for you.
Bring your own buckets (BYOB) to the market for water transport! We will wrap product for free. Shipping boxes and packing available for $12.50 box. Buckets are available to purchase if needed.
Buckets at the Market
Due to the shortages of buckets returned in good useable condition along with the high demand for floral buckets, we offer a “Bucket Exchange” program for buckets that are being borrowed from the growers at the Market for return in the following week for a small user fee. Regular accounts in good standing can swap borrowed Market buckets with other Market buckets for a nominal fee at checkout to cover usage, handling, sanitizing, and environmental waste fees. Buckets being returned to SWGM for exchanges must be empty, clean & in a useable condition. There will not be any credits issued for the return of borrowed Market buckets.
Transport and Handling
Customers are responsible for the proper transport, storage and handling of SWGM fresh products. Cut flowers and greens need to be kept cool and require storage in a cooler unless being used the same or next day. Heat and sun will destroy flowers and foliage. SWGM does not assume any liability for the improper handling or storage of products that leave the market in good condition. Flowers and foliage transported dry and not properly processed will not survive their normal vase life.
