I seem to always be drawn to Anne Kent’s stall at the market when I have my camera with me. Her beautiful cut flowers are definite eye candy that tempt you to take a look. I had recently written a post about Delightful Dahlias which are Anne’s specialty. I was pleased to see the beautiful flower tucked into her arrangements and proceeded to snap a few photos of these brightly coloured displays.
During my last visit to the market I asked Anne what she enjoys most about being at Royal City Farmers Market and she cheerily replied “the atmosphere is great as well as the other vendors.” Anne has been selling her blooms at the market since the tail end of last season and every market this season. Her Secret Garden business is run out in Bradner (near Glen Valley Organic Farm) and is 7 acres filled with assortments of florals such as perennials and of course, Dahlias. Her cheery attitude makes her a delight to speak with should you have an questions about her flowers. I even came home with an arrangement of Dahlias which now sit on my office desk as a cheery reminder of the beauty nature has to offer.
Anne Kent is at every market from 3-7pm until October 7th. Feel free to ask any questions about her flowers as she is very passionate about them and make sure to buy a couple stems because they really do add a bit of cheer to any area of your home.
