Logan City now has its very own flower market called the Southside Flower Market. Proudly located on the Southside of Brisbane it is proud to serve both the cities of Brisbane and Gold Coast but also more proudly the local people who live and work in the Logan City Area.
Southside Flower Market is now open at Unit 2, 6 Carlyle Street, Slacks Creek 4127 beside FLOWERHUB. Located on the same side of the highway as IKEA the flower market street is easy to find, simply turn when you see the SUBARU sign.
The People of Logan City have never had a Flower Market & have had to trek across town to the Rocklea Flower Markets; a trip that can take more than 1hr in heavy traffic. Well not any more.
Logan City is a Vibrant Multi-Cultural and diverse city and much like Sydney has Chatswood as a major hub outside the CBD, so too is the Springwood, Underwood, Slacks Creek area for Brisbane.
It is only fitting that Australia’s newest flower market is also the most technologically advanced. Every bunch of flowers, pot plant and the floral accessory item is made available to the world online, with real-time, live stock levels. This means that people who do not have the time to travel can simply log on from their favourite screen and live-buy the items they need.
Selling wholesale flowers the South SideFlower Market is perfect for events in Logan City & especially suits the DIY market as it sells wholesale farm size bunches by the box full.
What may be a surprise to know is that the FLOWERHUB has been operating under another name for almost 8 years inLogan, with Christensen FlowerAuction as its sole tenant. Not only was CFA the major tenant occupying the whole market building, it was also recognised as one of the Westpac Bank Top 200 Businesses of Tomorrow in 2018 because of its heavy tech focus.
Just as Europe has Aalsmere & other countries have their own trading flower auctions, Christensen Flower Auctionwas Australia’s only flower auction. Australia also had its very own hi tech digital flower auction right here in Brisbane.Established in 1995 to help local flower growers achieve higher returns for their quality flower crops & to ensure the money flowed back to the farms in just 7 days. CFA was a revolutionary company that shattered the cartel-like behaviour of local flower wholesalers, paying flower growers in 7 days, unlike the wholesalers who extorted the growers& only paid every 90 – 120 days. Ironically, the flower auction was born out of a wholesale operation through the vision of Bent Christensen who saw the struggles smaller quality producers had in gaining entry into a very closely held market space.
Christensen Flower Auction enjoyed 23 years of operation and in that time had major technological advances in the flower industry which made access to the centralized market easier and provided a more open and transparent trading environment.
Flowerhub is the next evolution of the CFA Company. With the 23 years of digital trading at its DNA core, Australia’s Online Flower Market continues the ethos of making flowers more accessible and fairer for all through the use of online shopping technology. Given that the City of Logan is a municipality built on inclusiveness, open access and a fair go for all, it is the perfect place for not only FLOWERHUB but for the Southside Flower Market to be located.
Fun Fact: South Side Flower Market was almost called Springwood Flower Market given the suburb is iconic on the southside of Brisbane.
