Mellano & Company Flowers has been spreading the joy of beautiful blooms for nearly 100 years
Since 1925, Mellano & Company has provided the world with the finest flowers and foliage. Starting in the Original Los Angeles Flower Market as a wholesaler, they service the floral needs of customers through four wholesale locations in California and Nevada, as well as their 375 acre growing operation in North San Diego County California.
Mellano family members serve on many local and industry wide boards; from Floral Trade and Farm Bureaus to SAF and WFFSA, further demonstrating their passion for the industry.
Though Mellano & Co. is a shipper and distributor of flowers from around the world, as a local grower, they are a proud contributor and supporter of the Certified American Grown flower movement.
In May 2020, they wanted to do something extra to serve their community. Shortly after the pandemic hit the United States, they opened the Mellano Farm Stand intending to stimulate the local economy by creating jobs and spreading the joy of flowers of course! Since then, the Mellano Farm Stand has grown to include local honey, jams, and olive oil along with local seasonal produce, potted succulents, and beautiful flowers. Mid-October as things began to look bleak again, the farm stand organized its first-ever Fall festival with tractor rides, food vendors, and of course a pumpkin patch—all while being Covid-19 safe.
With spring holidays just around the corner, and the beauty of the season to celebrate, consider a farm grown arrangement or bouquet from Mellon & Co. Florals available this time of year include vibrant tulips and alstroemeria, eucalyptus for a soft, earthy look, and gorgeous fillers like solidago.
Find their flowers and other products at the Fallbrook Farmers Market every Saturday from 9:30am to 2pm.
