Welcome to our Market, we offer Professional Floral Buyers 3 different ways to make your purchases
Are you a professional floral business with an account already registered with us? If not, please Learn about getting a Buyer’s Pass. A Buyer’s Pass is required for shopping at the Market during our regular business hours, ordering online, or placing a future order for your floral needs. 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 other than our DIY Buckets. Please contact a local florist if you have specific needs for items for a specific date.
Professional floral buyers can shop from the Market floor in-person for your current week 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. Shopping from the market floor allows you the sensory experience firsthand of seeing and selecting from the fresh floral products our local growers have delivered that week as it arrives!
Professional floral buyers can place a pre-order using our online Marketplace to reserve products for pick up during the following week during our regular weekly pre-order periods. Go to our new online Marketplace to place orders during the current week for pick-up during the following week. Orders may be placed online through your own customer log-in based on your business email account. Create your own password and manage your account settings for all new orders. Orders must be placed online no later than 1:00 pm on Thursday for pick up on Monday of the following week. Orders for pick-up on 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.
With the increased floral demand, we are not able to accept any week-of requests for 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. Peak Floral Holiday periods may have earlier deadlines for placing pre-orders.
Professional floral buyers can place advance Future Pre-Orders to reserve products for future needs and Events that are more than 2 weeks out to 6 months or more! If you would like to place an advance order for future Events more than 2 weeks out use our pre-order form below. We ask for at least two weeks or more lead time to source your requested products. 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.
