Why Local Flowers
Current flower industry statistics are appalling. Approximately 80% blooms in the US are shipped in from foreign countries, most covered in massive amounts of pesticides and preservatives, as well as wrapped in paper, cardboard and cellophane, in order to last the journey from farm, to distributor, to grocery store, and finally to your home or business.
Avium Flowers wants you to experience cut-flowers at their finest. We are proud to provide Chicago with fresh floral that is fragrant and long lasting, because we literally just cut it for you. Buying our locally grown flowers, you are supporting safe and sustainable growing practices, lessening your carbon footprint, and saving valuable resources. Each stem strengthens a conscious consumer economy and a vibrant local community.
Weekly Flower Share
Also known as a CSA, you will receive either a full share (12 weeks) or half share (6 weeks) of loosely arranged, weekly bouquets of 25+ sustainably grown and insanely fresh stems, cut for you the morning of your CSA pickup, with love by our farmers.
2017 shares are SOLD OUT! Email us to be the first to know when 2018 shares are available.
We are excited to work with local businesses to create a customized weekly floral delivery!
Keeping in mind your individual aesthetic, we will cut a specific amount and length of stems for you to design with each week, or we can do the arranging for you!
Bridgeport Sunday City Market
Hosted by Antique Taco and on-site at their Bridgeport location, we will be selling bouquets and single stems out of a retro Airstream on at the Sunday City Market between 8am and 2pm.
Join us this summer starting July 9 through September 10, as we celebrate local grown with flowers, tacos and our community.
Weddings hold a special place in our heart as our first unofficial season was to grow and design specifically for Lindsey + Eric's wedding; the first ever Avium Wedding. From a la carte items like bouquets and wedding party personals, to full service design, we want to bring the local beauty of the marvelous midwest to your celebration.
Limited availability for 2017 and currently booking for 2018.
Floral for the more hands on type, this option allows the season to flourish around you at your next celebration or event. Locally grown and freshly cut blooms are provided un-arranged, giving you the flexibility to arrange and design simple statements or elaborate installations in your own vision.
Offered June through October, weather permitting.
