Montreal’s Jean-Talon market is full of life, and sure, that feeling stems from the bustling patrons, and scores of local merchants hawking fresh produce, but it also comes in large part thanks to the florists at Binette et Filles.

Despite their size, they manage to go toe-to-toe to toe with some of the bigger florists in town, handling arrangements of all sizes, for all manner of important occasions without breaking a sweat.

The fresh-cut flower industry has come under fire in recent years for the heavy toll it takes on the natural environment. The florists at Oursin Fleurs are part of a new breed of florists who want to turn the industry on its head by striving for zero waste, adopting recyclable packaging, and only sourcing their flowers from local farmers that share their passion for reducing their impact on the planet. Oursin fleurs also apply that same care and attention to detail in preparing their arrangements which are respected and admired all over town. They look beautiful too, there's a really nice luxuriuous, sophisticated aesthetic to their arrangements and photos. They also sell non-floral gifts like vases, furnishings and more.

Buy a workshop for a handy person, or just cut to the chase and get them beautiful flowers to look at – either way, it's going to be high-quality here. They also do other nice smelling gifts such as candles and perfumes.

The Mile End is full of iconic institutions and business, but perhaps none among them is more iconic than Dragon Flowers, owned by businesswoman and longstanding mile-end resident, Tamuy Leu. For just a small, family-run flower shop, Montrealers (and Mile-Enders specifically) have very fond feelings for it. Evident by the fact that the community banded together to donate over $12,000 in just 24 hours to get the shop back on its feet after a devastating fire in 2013. Happily, Dragon Flower’s classic outdoor display of hanging seasonal flowers, crawling vines, and painted birdcages now lives on and continues to act as a local beacon for anyone in the market to buy a beautiful bouquet. The products look as wonderful in your home as they do around the store, so be reassured that you really can't go wrong with this place. Of course, if you need some help the staff are more than accommodating.
