Willow and Star in Nora is awesome! They have fresh stems, gifts, plants, and offer workshops! It’s cool spot! They also do events (parties, weddings, etc.)” — Ashley B.

Fishers Flower Farm! Mother-daughter owned and it’s the cutest thing ever.” — Melissa S.

“Hello!! One of the largest and longest existing is McNamara Florist... It might be a little more old school BUT if you have massive events or need columns or other furniture in a special events location, they are your florist. Their quality is great. The main store is on Mass Ave in the warehouse district...and other locations scattered among the city. I do love Flower Boys, the vibe in there is incredible!!” — Terry S.
