For those who are interested in learning flower arrangements or running a floral shop in the future, it is a good idea to visit a flower market. Some flower markets welcome customers who have no resale license (or seller's permit). By visiting a flower market, you can learn or get following information:
A. Learn names of flowers and plants
B. Become familiar with the operation of flower market
C. Become familiar with tools and devices used for floral designs
D. Find flyers showing floral shops for sale and how much they are
E. Find posters showing floral design show and flower arrangement seminars
At some flower market, you MAY be able to buy flowers even if you do not have a seller's permit/resale license
. Sometimes a market displays a flyer introducing a floral shop for sale. Floral shop for sale and introduced at a flower market MAY be one of market's customers and staff of a flower market MIGHT be familiar with the shop for sale. You MAY be able to get information about such florist from staff of flower market.
Ikebana arrangements and contemporary floral designs often use greenery for flower arrangements. You can learn not only about flowers but also about other plants such as bear grass, Japanese fatsia, grapevines, monstera, curly willow and horse tail etc etc. These plants are useful for creating a little bit different atmosphere by using together with flowers in designs. If you are planning to learn floral designs or engage in floral business, you can take a chance of learning names of flowers and also plants at a flower market. Once in a while flower markets hold a floral design seminar by inviting a floral artist.
Generally speaking it is pretty expensive to attend such seminar. No matter whether you join a seminar or not, you find how much it is and in what kind of environment seminar is done. If you look around the market, you will find a variety of flower arrangements displayed. Visiting a flower market during seminar is quite helpful for you to become familiar with local flower market.
