Flowers can play a role in any occasion, from the saddest and most solemn to the most joyous and celebratory. Flowers are there to cheer and comfort us through the highs and lows in life. Read on for five well liked flower shops in San Francisco.

Farmgirl Flowers
640 Brannan St.
San Francisco, CA 94107
(415) 800-1220

You may have heard about Farmgirl Flowers, with its burlap-wrapped bouquets that stand out from the usual floral offerings around town. Farmgirl Flowers began with a great idea; the company's goal to "completely change the way flowers are purchased in the U.S. by providing a better alternative to the big guys." Customer service is a priority here, only second to providing farm fresh, American-grown flowers at reasonable prices, of course. Farmgirl Flowers has a mindful agenda. Using only beautiful U.S.-gown flowers allows the shop to support local growers, aiming to reduce our environmental impact, like their recycled coffee bags from local roasteries morphed into the cutest bouquet wraps.

Amazing Flowers and Events
5522 Geary Blvd.
San Francisco, CA 94121
(415) 752-5522

First class customer service and beautiful bouquets live up to the name of this hardworking, family owned and operated florist shop. Amazing is a common term fans use to describe the flowers and service the Amazing Flowers and Events owner, Tim, provides by going the extra mile to fulfill customers' special requests.
