Learn of Baltimore's rich history while searching for Baltimore florists.
Founded in 1729 by Lord Baltimore, Cecil Calvert, the city was given the moniker "The Monumental City" in 1827 by then president, John Quincy Adams due to the number of monuments he’d noticed throughout the city during his visit.
Baltimore is the site of the first post office system established in 1774, and is also the location of the first Catholic Cathedral in the United States. The city is the birthplace of legendary jazz singer Billy Holiday and another noteworthy musical fact is that the Star Spangled Banner was written in here. First penned as a poem in 1814 by Francis Scott key to recount the British attack on the city’s harbour, and its defence by the forces at Fort McHenry, it was put to music several years later and eventually became the US National Anthem in 1931.
Tourists visiting Baltimore will love Inner Harbour for the shopping, hotels and museums. In fact Baltimore is riddled with museums showcasing the history of just about everything; including the Museum of Dentistry!
The locals often enjoy some more low key family friendly affairs like the Baltimore Flower Mart. Now in its 93rd year, the Baltimore Flower mart takes place on Mother’s Day weekend in May and brings the community together in ways that differ from the typical beer garden type events. With Puppeteers, stories and dance, the Baltimore Flower Mart has a slew of children’s activities and plenty to eat and drink making the weekend event a family affair. At the same time each year, Baltimore florists and residents mark the arrival of spring with the Flower mart at the foot of the Washington Monument in the parks at Mt. Vernon. It’s a popular event attended by Baltimore flower shop owners, floral designers, and gardeners alike. Baltimore area flower farmers and shop owners sell potted plants, herbs, bedding plants and of course fresh cut flowers. Baltimore flower designers, residents and event planners often leave with much more than they originally intended as it’s nearly impossible to resist the wide array of petunias, orchids, azaleas and Baltimore’s flower, the black-eyed Susan. In reality, this isn’t just Baltimore’s flower alone; it is actually the Maryland state flower, but Baltimore flower shop owners can tell you that they certainly do sell quite a few of them.
The flower mart also has a space for vendors in the wellness industry who set up shop to offer free massages and health screenings making the event even more tempting. Spring is always a time of renewal and the combination of breathtaking flora and a free massage is almost too good to pass on making this the perfect way to spend the Mother’s Day weekend.

but his good fortune is small compared to that of the happy mortal who enters this world with a passion for flowers in his soul.
