Hey friends! Today I just want to share a few photos from my trip to the San Francisco Flower Mart! I visited during my last #SanFranciscoStaycation in November! I’m actually on staycation again, as my vacation at work happens in two week chunks. Sometimes that means a big international vacation, but because Pat has a job too, it often ends up with me taking the time to relax at home and explore my pretty city.
I’d been wanting to go to the San Francisco Flower Mart almost since we moved to San Francisco but it feels like I’m always at work! I seized the opportunity to visit during those blissful two weeks. I couldn’t resist coming away with a literal armful of flowers. It was fun trying my hand at making my own bouquet at home.
The flower mart has recently been in the news as real estate developers try to get rid of it to build office space in its place. It’s sad to think of this lovely space being leveled and replaced with cubicles. It’s free to visit, open to the public, and definitely worth checking out! I hope you will support this amazing local gem. It’s one of the many things that makes San Francisco so unique and special. It’s also an Instagrammer’s heaven!
