The LA Flower District dates back to the 1900s when flower farmers would drive their wagons to Spring Street, and later Wall Street to sell their fresh flowers. In its current location,The District stretches from San Pedro Street west to Maple Street, from Seventh Street south to Ninth Street and virtually every variety of fresh-cut flower can be found. Two notable areas in the Flower District are The LA Flower Market, the largest flower market in the United States, and the California Flower Mall.
