1. This isn’t Magic City Flower Market’s first rodeo.

If the name Magic City Flower Market sounds familiar to you, you might have heard of them here when they opened in Rosegolden in Avondale in April 2019. Or maybe you caught them in our roundup of 5 locations. to buy fresh flowers in Birmingham in November. 2019.

Either way, what you need to know is that they are Birmingham’s go-to place for locally grown flowers and the USA all year round.

2. Get your local and American flowers at the Magic City Flower Market.

If you like your flowers to look like they’re straight out of a Georgia O’Keefe painting, you’ll want to stop by the Magic City Flower Market to see what these local growers have to offer:

  • Hepzibah Farms
  • 1818 Farms
  • Stone Hollow Farm
  • Boom Boom Flower
  • McLeod Family Farm
  • Blue Rooster Farm
  • BelAir Farm

Sarah hopes to add more local flower growers this year.

Additionally, she brings “other flowers grown in the United States to complement and add to our landrace varieties. It gives me the opportunity to find awesome flowers/foliage that we don’t have access to locally.

Magic City Flower Market is committed to sustainability, best practices in the flower industry, and support for local growers.

3. “I’ll Get What She Has” – the rod bar and other offerings, including PHRESH.

When I stopped by on this gray day, it was so much fun to learn from Sarah about all she has to offer. Here are a few :

  • Flowers per bouquet.
  • A stem bar – create your own bouquet.
  • Arrangements—you can view them on the website for Valentine’s Day pre-order.
  • PHRESH—follow @magiccityflowermarket on Instagram so you can find out when they launch this flower club membership, with weekly bouquets and more.

4. Watch this space: Community Design Collab.

In case you didn’t know by now, Magic City Flower Market is more than a flower shop. There’s a whole community aspect to it, supporting local flower growers and also working with local floral designers through the Community Design Collab. Here’s what Sarah had to say about it:

“I work with floral designers in town in hopes of building good, lasting relationships. Two designers came to help me create my vision for the seasonal installation. It will rotate every two months and my plan is to take two different designers each time to present their work!

These are fixtures that will last and stay in place until we move on to the next seasonal design. This time it was with Brooke Mcafee of Lilt Florals and Mary Ashley “Mitty” Twitty of Fox and Brindle. I shared my inspiration with them and they made it happen!
