Right along the Snoqualmie River (about 30 miles outside of Seattle) there sit’s a 2 acre organic farm where Marigold and Mint grows flowers and edibles for their beautiful shop in the Melrose Market. Founded in 2008 by owner Katherine Anderson a trained Landscape Architect, Marigold and Mint is an organic farm, retail shop and studio all in one.

They sell and deliver their beautiful seasonal flowers and arrangements to florists, individuals and businesses in the greater Seattle area. In addition to selling flowers from their Snoqualmie farm they also sell flowers grown by Erin Benzakein from her farm called Floret located in the Skagit Valley.
