DPC Heritage Photowalk Gazipur Flower Market 18-19th June

Continuing the series of New Photowalks . Here is the brand new walk.

DPC is announcing its next heritage walk to Ghazipur Flower Mandi.

Ghazipur Flower Mandi is a photographer’s {as well as a botanist’s} delight with stalls upon stalls of regular and exotic flowers being sold at wholesale rates.

Delightfully fragrant and a treat for the eyes, this wholesale market of Delhi located in Ghazipur supplies flowers to an array of buyers ranging from event managers, wedding planners, and designer florists to small scale vendors. Look at the flowers, absorb their beauty and take some home – who knows, it might just turn out to be the best “good morning” you’d have wished yourself in a long time!

Focusing on the flowers, the range found here is as impressive as the source itself. These flowers are brought from all over India, as well as from distant countries like Thailand, China and Holland, amongst others. These include marigolds, lilies, roses, orchids, gerberas, irises, anthuriums, and even artificial flowers in shades of reds, oranges, yellows, blues & whites, to highlight just a few of the wide gamut of flowers.

Ever since the flower market made its shift from Mehrauli to Ghazipur, this has become the ultimate spot for wedding vendors, retailers, flower sellers and florists. The range, types and kinds of flowers are enough to convince you to buy some for your home. Coming in from Holland, China and other South East Asian countries, {and from all over India}, the lilies, roses, marigolds, orchids, gerberas, carnations,rajnigandhas and more are top-notch. During festivals {and we went during Diwali}, the bundles of flowers are piled up high, and the trick is to walk deeper and deeper into the market for better deals.
