Flower season is definitely upon us with spring officially starting tomorrow. From pink cherry blossom trees to stunning tulips, there are flowers all around us during this time of the year. Flower markets are so adorable, but they're usually always found somewhere outside. This stunning indoor market is actually inside, making it easy for you to get into the spring mood regardless of the fact that there's still snow outside.
There are so many things to do during the springtime in Ottawa, but at this very moment the weather is still waaaay to cold to even attempt to go for a "stroll" to a flower garden. Of course, it doesn't hurt to plan what you'll be doing in a couple weeks, but as of right now we're at a standstill when it comes to spring weather. Luckily this beautiful flower market is sure to bring spring straight to your Insta page.
The CF Flower Market is a temporary pop-up at the CF Rideau Centre, so be sure to get that photo before it goes! At the market, you can buy local goodies and, of course, flowers. Different local shops will be featured at the market at different times of this month. Some of the shops that will be at the market include:
- Top Shelf Preserves: March 20 and March 31
- Alicja Confections: March 23 to March 25
- Flawless by Friday: March 28 to March 29 and March 31
