There is another place in Harlem that is selling inexpensive flowers-aside from the place in Spanish Harlem I told you about last October. Fine Fare 20110829-112631.jpgSupermarket, located at 136 Lenox Avenue between 111th and 112th, sells a variety of flowers and plants for an inexpensive price. At this Fine Fare, roses are selling for $6 a dozen or two dozen for $10. Not bad. I purchased $20 dollars worth. My little casita is filled with flowers.

Check it out the Fine Fare near Central Park North if you interested in inexpensive roses. If you live in East Harlem, I buy flowers at the NW corner of 116th and Lexington Avenue. They are reasonable there as well.

There is a rose in Spanish Harlem, an abundance on East 116th Street

Do you remember the song by Ben King called “There is a rose in Spanish Harlem?” It is an oldie, but goodie hit! We thought of this song recently when we passed by the flower stand on the northwest corner of East 116th Street and Lexington Avenue this past weekend.
This particular flower stand has an abundance of fresh roses, sunflowers, daisies and mixed flowers for sale-more so than other Bodega stands in Harlem. The flowers at this stand are all beautifully stacked and grouped accordingly where it makes the street-walker stop, look and buy. That’s what happened to us. We ended up buying two dozen colored roses for $10 and a bouquet of daisies for $5! What a deal! This stand has to be one of the least expensive places with gorgeous product in the area. We wanted to buy more flowers, such as the mustard colored sunflowers for $5 or mixed flowers for $8! However, we only had two sets of hands. We’re going back though. After our two dozen roses finish blooming!
As the song goes, there is a rose in Spanish Harlem beautiful and inexpensive, and it’s on 116th Street and Lexington Avenue.
