Blia Lor started her farming career at a strawberry farm after she moved to Washington from Laos 30 years ago. She later started her own 14-acre flower farm in Carnation and has been selling at Pike Place Market for 20 years. She also grows an acre of produce that she sells through the Pike Place Market Basket CSA, though you'll find her selling flowers in the North Arcade.

Blia's son Peter started helping his mom when he was seven years old, and he still pitches in at the market and the farm, while also balancing a busy freelance photography business and his studies in radiology. You might also see Blia's four other children helping out at the stall.
