Flower Auction and return to Amsterdam

This morning we were on our bikes at 6:45 am, yes am, to go to the flower auction in Aalsmeer. This flower market receives flowers from all over the world and sells and ships them all over the world. 60% of the worlds flowers go through this auction and a large proportion of those flowers are grown in Holland. The auction was organized chaos, to put it briefly. People on carts were zooming through giant warehouses getting the flowers to where they needed to go.

There are thousands of carts with flowers and plants in multiple warehouses.

Lynn WalkerIf I’m not mistaken, this market is the Rose Parade floats flower supplier.

The warehouses were huge with carts and trains of carts zipping around.
