Flors al Mercat
A plant-based weekend
The third edition of this plant-based event will bring together, next weekend, at Plaça Margarida Xirgu, which once housed Barcelona's central flower market, florists, artisans and designers who are inspired by nature, initiatives that work in favor of urban green and a more sustainable city, free activities for all ages such as the exchange of cuttings, paid workshops and with prior registration such as "Your fern is a trophy" with Paul Justin Scott, and gastronomic proposals. Flors al Mercat thus becomes a space for meeting and learning about the world of plants.
Invited to introduce their projects will be the activists from Eskocells, who propose to cultivate micro-gardens or orchards in the street pits where the trees are planted; the Col·lectiu Eixarcolant, which recovers wild edible species and traditional agricultural varieties to promote a more responsible, ethical and fair model of food production, distribution and consumption and socio-economic development, and Cooltivat, pioneers in putting Barcelona's first online vegetable garden within a click.
Among the flower shops you will find Casa Pampa with its collection specimens, Àrbora with its tillandsias or aerial plants, Minimal Moss terrariums, The Boj bouquets, Fedra kokedamas, Verde Raíz seed bombs, decorative balls that they bloom by BoladeFang…
And also, pots by La-a and Ani Ceramics, textile creations by Minipicnic, basketry by Montse Roa, illustrations by Gala Pont, vegan and solid cosmetics...
