Sat@LoCoFlo: Your Weekend Routine

Tags: Sat@LoCoFlo, At LoCoFlo

Note: Check our We're Not Going Viral post for updates.

Saturdays at LoCoFlo has become our favorite event. It's the bomb. We get to talk about flowers, show off our weekly local display from the farms and our dope shop, hang out with friends, meet new people, have kid and animal visitors. It's chill. It's different. It's its own thing.

We didn't even plan it. Sat@LoCoFlo grew out of customer demand from the 32nd Street Farmers Market.

When we first moved into our space our entire business was wedding flowers. We were the florist to over 100 weddings a year! The studio was perfect for us: we built a big cooler, we had lots of space to design, storage for everything. We didn't give much thought to the market down the street each Saturday morning.

With our bay doors open, wrapping the wedding bouquets and packing up the van with centerpieces, we started getting market-goers peering in. Then a few questions. Then some people hanging out. Ellen, with her MBA training, recognized the opportunity: we should sell flowers out of the shop.

Genius!

Today, we are doing less than half the wedding work we used to and Saturday mornings are our jam. Now we have dozens of regulars who make visiting LoCoFlo part of their Saturday routine.

What is it?

Sat@LoCoFlo is our weekly flower hang out. Bring your Blacksauce. Build a bouquet. Design an arrangement. Pick up your PickUp. Every Saturday 8:00AM-12:00PM the shop is open to buy local flowers.

How it Works

Just drop in. We're only a half-block from the farmers market. We display all of our flowers. You can pick them out by the stem or we can make a bouquet for you. We also have a design table set up. Chat with our knowledgeable team about the varieties, the farms and design. It's the place to be.

Hope to see you there!

Ellen, Forgive me but what is meant by "bring your Blacksauce"? Thank you!

Blacksauce is a vendor at the market. Get Damian's bomb biscuit sandwich and eat at our shop! (When we're back to normal)
