Cone & Steiner’s displays feature locally-grown Triple Wren Farms bouquets for American Flowers Week.

Flower farmer Steve Pabody and grocery entrepreneur Dani Cone. It’s all about local, community, and connections.

On the first day of American Flowers Week, June 28th, I met up in Seattle with Steve Pabody, partner in Triple Wren Farms with his wife Sarah Pabody.

Their Ferndale, Wash., flower farm makes weekly deliveries to Cone & Steiner, an innovative new-old neighborhood convenience store, with soon-to-be 3 locations.

Steve delivered straight bunches of lovely anemones and mixed bouquets in Mason jars — all labeled American Flowers Week.

Triple Wren Farmrs’ anemones for American Flowers Week!

I had a chance to ask owner Dani Cone for her take on the holiday – and on buying from local flower farms. Enjoy our interview:

Here are a few more beautiful floral shots — eye candy that greets neighborhood customers stopping by Cone & Steiner, enticing them to grab a bunch to add to their coffee or sandwich purchase.

Beautiful mixed bouquets, wrapped in paper — ready to take home.

And P.S., these are just a few of the American Flowers Week bouquets that Triple Wren delivered to Pacific Northwest area retail outlets. Steve and Sarah delivered bouquets and growers’ bunches to New Seasons, Whole Foods and Metropolitan Market stores in the area, too!
