About The Bloomin' News
The Bloomin' News is published by the American Florists' Exchange / Los Angeles Flower Market every other month (January, March, May, July, September and November). The publication was started in October 1949 by the Southern California Floral Association, which operated the two major wholesale flower markets* that, along with storefront vendors, today comprise the Los Angeles Flower District in the 700 block of Wall Street in Los Angeles.
Today's Bloomin' News features from 16 to 24 pages, but at one time in its early years, our newsletter was published monthly in 32 or more pages and covered every detail of the floral industry in the Los Angeles area. For a brief period in the early 1990s, it also included the newsletter of the California State Floral Association. In its first 20 years, its pages featured popular columns, articles and updates from flower and industry associations and many long-running ads by local florists, shippers, wholesalers, wire services and others. It's always been a popular place for the Los Angeles area floral industry to get together.
We are pleased to be able to offer this great tool, The Bloomin' News, for retail florists, designers, event and wedding planners, wholesalers, growers, vendors and Market tenants to stay in touch with each other and up-to-date on the events and news of the floral industry both locally and nationally.
