Euclid Farms is the cutest shop around. It’s an adorable small-scale urban flower farm and shop on Queen Street West in the Trinity Bellwoods neighbourhood. The shop owners grow most of their fresh blooms in warmer months, and support and shop locally as much as possible, sourcing the flowers they don’t grow themselves from local farms and relying on imports only when necessary. This is the ideal shop for an environmentally conscious bouquet of stunning blooms for the love in your life that like to shop as locally and eco-consciously as possible. While the shop is currently closed due to flood damage, Euclid Farms is still fulfilling pickup and delivery orders.
A mainstay in the Roncesvalles area, this floral studio offers all the classic arrangements you’d expect from a quaint neighbourhood florist, including Valentine’s Day-themed bouquets and floral subscriptions so you can always have a fresh bouquet on hand.

Might we suggest signing up for a plant subscription which will deliver a house plant in your pot of choice for just $45 monthly.
