Being able to recall moments from 10 or 20 years ago might be the strangest part of getting older to me thus far. At 33 years of age, I’ve lived just long enough to have this minor luxury. But as our bodies decay each day as our minds get wiser, luxury itself seems further removed from the meaning of existing.

The Original Los Angeles Flower Market (OLAFM) knows a thing or two about aging gracefully. Founded by the American Florists’ Exchange in 1919 and officially incorporated in 1921, this iconic LA institution has lived several seasons. At 100 years old, it's the beating heart of what is now the largest flower district in the United States.

For a century its doors have continued to nourish the floral community and welcome flower enthusiasts from all corners of the world. Within its walls, you can find beauty consuming every square foot; far beyond the blooms — to its people. Hard working hands carrying the torch from previous generations, coloring the now, and inspiring the many Springs to come.

Happy Holidays and cheers to 100 years of flores!
