Cheng Saelee started growing flowers back in 1982 on her farm, Cheng Chio Saelee Garden.
Back in the early 80s, their project was mainly based on vegetable farming. Cheng Chio Saelee Garden grew all kinds of Asian greens and collard greens, mustard greens, peas, and more. Later in the 90s, the farm started to focus more on flowers.
Today, they still do vegetables, but not as much. Having vegetables tends to be a lot more work than flowers! They began selling in the Market in 1992. Cheng Chio Saelee Garden’s farm is located in Woodinville, Washington, about 20 miles from the Market.
Cheng Saelee and her family grow all the flowers and sell their harvest themselves. They take care of them from day one. Their flowers are as fresh as they come! They’re grown without chemicals, are picked in the morning, and bunched right at the Market.
You can find them set up on the farm tables in the Market’s main arcade.
