As we know, the Netherlands is a country renowned for its flowers and its horticulture.
The first Market Flower of Amsterdam opened in 1862 on the Sint-Lucienwal.
In 1883, the flower market at moved to its current place on the banks of the Singel.
At that time, the market was called: market to trees and plants.
Cut flowers began to have success in the 1960s... Perhaps because of the success of the first Floriade Horticultural Exposition which was held in Rotterdam in the Netherlands. It was first horticultural exhibition of A1 category approved by the BIE and AIPH, the same category as Expo 2016 Antalya.
