Yes! We offer DIY Buckets of Blooms. This is a one time purchase of farm fresh flowers for your event or wedding that does not require a seasonal buying membership. Learn more about our DIY floral options here!
To shop from our weekly wholesale flower market, you must fill out our buyer’s pass application. Once approved, we’ll contact you with a membership login along with the online pre-ordering and in-person buying process.
Once you’ve activated your buyer’s pass membership (via our website), you’ll be supplied with our seasonal availability guide and a detailed documentation of how the ordering process works! Online pre-sales are accessed through our shop page each Monday, in-person shopping is Wednesday. We strongly encourage you to treat our Monday online shopping as your must have items to guarantee you’re getting what you need that week. Once your online order is submitted and paid for, our farmers will be contacted and they will harvest it for Wednesday pickups at MFB. Every Wednesday MFB will also be open for shopping from all florals that we’re not pre-ordered, or what our farmers have available that week. Quantities are limited for each week, so any online “pre-orders” products are what sells first, in person shopping is great if your floral needs are flexible!
If you know your floral design requires in-demand seasonal blooms (dahlias, peonies, ranunculus), please contact MFB at least 3 weeks before your event date. We’ll need estimated stem counts and color palettes to provide accurate ordering opportunities.
The MFB is a private marketplace, not open to the general public for shopping. Members will be notified of pickup and shopping times, which take place each Wednesday May – October. We are located in Bennington Township (Owosso, MI), 5 minutes north of I-69. Looking to get local flowers as a one time purchase for your event? Check out our DIY Blooms page.
We accept new and seasoned flower farmers. You will need to be able to supply your products in wholesale quantities (growers bunches) to sell, and have sustainable practices in place. Our team will visit each new flower farming members farm during the season. We have a limited number of spots available for farmers each season, based on our number of buyers.
Start with applying here. Once we’ve reviewed your application, you’ll be notified of acceptance or if you’re on our wait list, via email. Once accepted, you’ll get a welcome email with our market process, and what is required as a farmer member with MFB. All farming members have an online account where products are uploaded to our store each week for buyers to shop from.
Absolutely. A flower farming member can add on a buyers pass for $50. Just select that option on your farmer’s application.
If there is an error, or you’re unhappy with the quality of your product upon pickup, please let us know! We provide the highest quality cut-flowers and guarantee fresh products every week. You’ll approve your order upon pickup. If there are any issues within 24 hours of receiving your products, you must contact us immediately to arrange a refund or credit. After the products are in your care for more than 24 hours, we cannot accommodate any issues as buyers are responsible for proper care.
The Michigan Flower Barn concept is inspired by the replicable flower co-op structure and other local wholesale models across the US. After realizing the undeniable need to supply flower farmers across Mid-Michigan with a central hub to distribute their blooms, our wholesale flower market was created.
