Established in 1980; in the floral industry since 1996 and loving every minute. I recently moved from a flat and landlocked region of the Midwest to the glorious beauty of Oregon! I'm convinced I won't need a vacation for at least 15 years as my life now is very vacation-esq. I'm all outdoors in my spare time...hiking, camping, or lazing by a river. Oh & eating too! the restaruants here are out of control in the best way possible! My favorite flower... peonies! No wait it's Lilac... but no, Ranunculus. i love them all!!

As a supply buyer and manager I do a lot of problem solving—making sure we have what we need on our shelves and procuring what we do not. I’m fortunate to travel to Gift Shows –it’s an amazing experience every time and I am always humbled and rejuvenated with each trip. I wish everyone had the opportunity to go. While I’m there I try to be the eyes of our customers and return with the latest and greatest our industry has to offer. I love that our industry is constantly evolving-I love when our customers share pictures of their work-it is so gratifying to see the products we sell in action. Being a floral supply buyer is challenging but I am always up for a challenge, so let me know what you are looking for. My favorite flowers are tulips—I always smile when I see a butter yellow one or white and green parrot tulip with a hint of coral. I’ve also never known a container that wasn’t made better by having a bunch of tulips in it.

:                I started at Frank Adams August of 2014 as the cashier. I really love the customer interaction of that position. I met many wonderful folks. I left for greener grass and found out that the grass is not greener. I returned to Frank Adams as our supply buyers assistant. What do I love about this job? Just about everything. There are challenges and successes every day. I still get to work closely with our wonderful customers. And who does not want to work around pretty things and amazing people.

                         My favorite flower…….. has to be Sweet Peas, the scent and delicacy always make me smile. They remind me of my grandparents, they grew them every year and would always send me home with a bunch.

With many years spent pushing posies’, I can definitely say I know my way around a cooler. However I am exposed to new varieties and learning all the time. I have an eye for color and style coordination so my peers have dubbed me the wedding/event expert. That suites me fine because I enjoy compiling specific flower theme’s and palate’s for orders. When I’m not frolicking in petals you can find me camping, kayaking & gardening with my honey and being a mom to my cats. My favorite flower? Starting in the A’s Anemone…

I am a native Oregonian who has been involved in the floral industry since 1982, where I began my journey at the Grand Avenue Portland Flower Market.  I have worked in both the supply and fresh flower departments and met numerous people and friends that I have to this day.  My favorite flower would be the Calla Lily because of their simple classic elegance.  My outside interests include R&B music, History, exercise and just being thankful for living in such a beautiful area.

Over the 40+ years in the wholesale florist business I have seen lots of changes. The Portland Flower Market is a unique place to work and shop. I enjoy golfing, fishing and all sporting events, especially those Cowboys!   It seems the flowers have been a part of my whole life and I think my favorite is King Protea, because it's good to be a king!

I have been in the floral industry for 15 years. I love it! My family at Frank Adams keeps me on my toes and keeps me loving life. Great people and great flowers are what I surround myself with. I love olives! A lot. My favorite flower...hmmmm, Tuberose. Can't get enough of that fragrance. I must have music and laughter in my life, they are both food for the soul.

With over 20 years of floral and event planning experience, I am always creating; a floral arrangement, a tableau, an experience. New to the Frank Adams family, I now have the opportunity to learn the ‘other side’ of the industry. I have found it to be very interesting. Non-working hours are spent letterboxing, hiking, and reading. My greatest joy is traveling – anywhere and everywhere. Favorite Flower? Who doesn’t love Tulips!

Thirty one years in the floral business must mean I love all things floral. My husband and I started the largest outdoor cut flower operation, Accent Gardens, in Boulder Colorado. From there we expanded into selling to five wholesale markets, farmers markets, and wedding and floral designing. After a short time away from the flower industry and raising two amazing children, I am now the founder and co-owner of Pacific Garland. Frank Adams has allowed me to meet customers and introduce premium garland and wreaths. Tuberose has my heart.

I love working here! My coworkers are part of my family; they value my time and efforts in making this a great place for our customers.  We recognize the importance of team work and customer service.  What I like most about living in Oregon is that I can enjoy all four seasons, no need to go elsewhere.  My favorite flower is the bird of paradise (strelitzia reginae) because it reminds me of my beautiful country; Nicaragua.

Well hello! My name is Darren. Born and raised in the sweltering heat of Southern Arizona  (GO WILDCATS) I found myself craving somewhere new. So picked up and moved to Portland almost 4 years ago and simply love it! I love the outdoors, hiking, camping, mountain biking, and kayaking.
