Flowers add colour to the darkest day, making the heart smile and the senses revel in their colour and scent. The Multiflora Flower Market, situated in the heart of the Gauteng Province of South Africa, celebrates the natural beauty and abundance of colourful blooms all under the expansive roof of one market.
The Multiflora Flower Market is situated just south of the city centre, in an undercover area that spans some 50 000 square metres. It provides a massive flower auction space in which more than 600 flower growers sell more than a million stems of flowers every day. These are sold on a bulk scale (to hundreds of local florists and wholesalers), as well as directly to the average consumers and some of the top floral designers in the country. This means that the stunning flowers being sold at Multiflora make their way all over the country.
The vast majority of the flowers come from Johannesburg and its immediate surrounds. However, about 20% of the plants come from further afield, extending to other parts of South Africa, as well as Zimbabwe and Kenya. In addition, orchids are brought in from Thailand and bamboo is imported from China.
Grandiflora is situated at the Multiflora Flower Market, and offers a wide range of extra goods. These include party supplies and decorative pieces for the home, making Multiflora the one-stop-shop for those planning a celebration or event.
There is a Dulcé Café at the market, giving busy shoppers a place to enjoy a cuppa and a catch-up with friends. As the largest flower market in the whole of the southern hemisphere, Multiflora is a must for those wanting to see, smell and touch the widest array of exquisite flowers at very reasonable prices.
