"Most of them come from within about two hours away," said a vendor.

Founded in 1921, the market traffics in fresh flowers of California, as well as imports.

Primarily for wholesalers, the market is a treat for the senses. You can purchase flowers, as well as twigs and branches, bark, seed heads, cones, and just about any other product from the plant kingdom. In addition, you'll find a wide assortment of vases and containers to arrange flowers, ribbons and other flower-arranging supplies.

If you plan to visit, check out the details at the website of the Original Los Angeles Flower Market.

But if you can't make it to the Original Los Angeles Flower Market in person, check out the slide show for a virtual visit.
