Arguably the coolest six blocks of wholesale greenery occupying any city are the streets that make up the downtown Flower District of Los Angeles, California. There is just something special about witnessing one of the most massive concrete jungles overrun with the season’s latest blooms. Today, hundreds of flower vendors cover the streets with every kind of flower able to grow under the SoCal sun, which thanks to great weather and fertile soil is just about anything. The Flower District didn’t bloom overnight though. The seed was first planted back in the early 1900’s when flower farmers from all over the area would drive their horse-drawn wagons into the Downtown Los Angeles produce market to sell their blooms. The first dedicated flower market in Downtown was established by James Vawter, a snazzy carnation grower from Santa Monica who found even more prominence there on Spring Street. By 1917 European immigrants had begun coming together to offer their locally grown flowers to city florists and nursery owners, apart from the Japanese-American flower market that they were not allowed to participate in. In 1921, all of the streets connected and the entire flower community came together under a new d.b.a., Los Angeles Flower Market.
Today, the Los Angeles Flower Market, known as the Los Angeles Flower District, is well hunkered down in its new, but longstanding, home in the 700 block of South Wall Street, Los Angeles. Being at the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, The Flower District is located near some of the best things to do in SoCal like the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Downtown LA Walking Tours, The Real Los Angeles Tours, The Broad, OUR Skyspace LA, Japanese American National Museum, The Orpheum Theatre, Old Trapper’s Lodge, Clifton’s Cafeteria, Sidewalk Food Tours of Los Angeles, and The Last Bookstore.
