Betsy Orvis is one of our newest friends that has found her niche by providing the most perfect bouquets sold as “Petite Mason Jar bouquets” Betsy’s husband, Chelsea a talented local metal worker, made the most amazing display holder just for Betsy’s bouquets, check it out!! and I have to say “hi” to their 2 kiddos that make deliveries every week, always happily!!

River Berry Farm – Fairfax, V.T. David and Jane are seasoned growers providing us with lots of beautiful produce and seasonal flowers!

Green Mountain Floral Supply – So. Burlington, V.T. Albeit not a local flower grower, I wanted to mention how much I appreciate the fact that our “off season” flowers come to us from this locally owned & operated whole sale supplier! A family run business for many decades, full of wonderful people that I’m able to work with all year round.

Each Monday morning I send “recipes” to Gr. Mountain for our “Co-branded” bouquets sold exclusively at Healthy Living Market! Gracie. Keith, Heather, and others then transform my “wish list” into perfectly designed bouquets, a true partnership comes to fruition!
