This week, we're talking farm to tabletop, or rather farm to vase!
Weather you want to shop small or shop local, Christine Hoffman of Foxglove Market & Studio has got you covered. Not only does Foxglove have a wide array of locally produced and vintage home goods, they also specialize in being one of the only dedicated local flower shops in the state.
Did you know that most of those lovely bouquets you're bringing home are grown using a heavy mix of fertilizers, chemicals and preservatives? Add to that worker exposure, ship time, resources and packaging and you’ve got one loaded bunch of tulips. Read more about it in Christine's words here. We knew there had to be another way to have our flowers and not feel guilty smelling them too, thankfully that's where Foxglove comes in.
Foxglove Market & Studio is open, Tuesday - Saturday 11am - 7pm or Sunday 11am - 4pm and is located at 792 Grand Avenue in St. Paul.
Stay up to date on upcoming classes and events, stop by for seasonal flowers and decor and this holiday season. Think about buying a locally made wreath or centerpiece for your celebrations, wreaths are between $35-65 a piece. Interested in becoming a local flower producer yourself? Foxglove is accepting new growers for the 2015 season.
Boom! Now let's hear what the lovely Christine had to say when we bombarded her with quyestions one sunny afternoon.
