We’ve recently started working with our growers to hand select classic and exotic stems and combine them into stunning arrangements. See the Dutch Delight and Willow Bird bouquets below.
We’re taking the work off your plate so all you have to do is grab a bouquet, pop it in a vase, and display your fresh cut blooms on the table. Selections will vary by color, size, and style so you can switch up your festive display depending on your mood or decor.
Roses Are Red (and Yellow, and Pink…)

We’re really excited about our Ecuadorian roses we’re getting from a new grower, so we’re sharing our excitement with you, along with some rose care tips, so you can share these buds with a loved one.
The roses are delivered 4 days a week to every store so they’re always fresh and bloom beautifully in your home. When you get them home remember to keep them in a cool area, change the water and trim the stems daily to keep your roses velvety and vibrant. Remember: don’t use scissors to cut the stems! Our floral expert recommends you grab a sharp knife and cut on an angle.
*From 7.20.11-8.2.11 you can get a dozen medium stem roses for $7.99 (regular $10.99)

Field of Greens

Earthbound Farms recently invited Plum Market’s Phil Cassise and Marc Jonna to California last month to help harvest some romaine lettuce.
While they only pretended to bag romaine hearts (workers do this right in the field, below) they certainly enjoyed the scenery and were very impressed with Earthbound Farm’s organic farming methods.
The farming equipment used to harvest the spring mix triples as a mower, vacuum, and cooler to collect, sort, and keep the greens fresh just before pre-washing and packaging. Who knew so much work went into that mixed greens salad you’re eating for lunch?
