Fresh Cut Flowers are this week’s Fresh Pick of the Week from the Summer Certified Farmers’ Market. Each week, Juan Arriaga, of Arriaga Farms, brings in a fresh batch of California-grown cut flowers – direct from the farm to the markets. Choose from sunflowers, lilies, mixed bouquets, and more – all fresh cut and ready for Summer enjoyment.
California's unique climate means that flower growers like Arriaga Farms can produce some of the finest cut flowers in the world – and they can do it all year long. California-grown cut flower growers use the latest technologies to produce and transport their cut flowers to market in the quickest and most efficient way, ensuring that customers always receive fresh, long-lasting products. You won’t find fresher flowers than the ones at the Summer Certified Farmers’ Market unless you’re growing them yourself!

The agency is funded in part by the State’s largest cut flower growers, and in part by a grant from the California Department of Food and Agriculture. It provides a resource for California Cut Flower Growers of all sizes.
