Celebrate Spring by Shopping at These Black-Owned Brooklyn Florists

May 8, 2023

Along with warmer temperatures that we look forward to all winter long in Brooklyn, spring brings the echoes of charming birdsong, canopies of fluffy cherry blossoms and the return of verdant lawns with vibrant floral accents. Being in Park Slope, minutes from Prospect Park, our real estate agents have plenty of opportunities to take it all in. But even more than enjoying spring blooms for ourselves, we love to share the beauty with clients, friends and loved ones this time of year by posting photos on our Instagram feed, attending seasonal events and purchasing flowers.

Whether you’re looking to brighten up your kitchen table, on the hunt for a Mother’s Day gift, or wanting to surprise your friend or loved one (or real estate client) with a bouquet, flowers are always a good idea—and if you can support a Black-owned Brooklyn business in the process, even better.

Here are some of Brooklyn’s favorite Black-owned florists you might want to check out.
