At FloraHolland Aalsmeer (flower auction) around 20 million flowers are auctioned every day, from Monday to Friday morning. A stone’s throw away from Schiphol Airport you'll find the export auction with a very broad and deep range of flowers and plants
They are auctioned at thirteen clocks in five auction rooms. The center is known for its sophisticated facilities for processing and assembly, for example of small bouquets. The Aalsmeer location is the biggest trade center in the world. The auction complex houses businesses in trade, export and the processing of decorative plants. The logistical services are completely geared to processing large quantities of products quickly and effi ciently. For smaller buyers, the Aalsmeer location has the Cash & Carry Cultra.
Trading hours for the auction are from 6.30 AM to 9.30 AM, opening hours for visitors are 7 AM - 11 AM.
Beware that bought flowers, plants and seeds need to have a customs cleared stamp (on the packet) when you cross country borders.
