Three friends who dared to dream and change the story of their lives opened their business in 2019 doing something they all adore…flowers. Missie Polakovich, Renee Koops and Tracey Gerdeman came together with a combined 30+ years of passion and experience in floral design, creativity and hospitality management.
After facing the tragic loss of her husband (affectionately nicknamed “Southside Jimmy”) in 2017, the spark of a dream in Missie’s heart blossomed into something realistic to bring her love of blooms to other people.
Combined with Renee’s passion for gardening and family, and Tracey’s tech-savvy abilities to capture it all, the three best friends built Southside Flower Market from the ground up. The bright red cardinal in our logo signifies the love and encouragement that keeps us going every day, from our beloved family and friend watching from above.
Southside Flower Market is proud to be a female owned and led business, specializing in an ever-changing selection of fresh seasonal blooms and foliage for both retail and event design work. Our work is centered around a romantic and modern style of floral design with lively color, lush texture, and interesting accents at a reasonable price point. We welcome you to visit us in our boutique at the stylish and popular Breton Village Mall.
We offer fresh cut stems you can choose yourself from the beautiful walk in cooler. Bring in a vase, like your Grandmother's vase, and we'll fill it with her favorite flowers. Or work with our design team to create a one of a kind arrangement for that special place in your home.
We offer a full range of bridal services from cash and carry to on site all day support. We will work with you to make this part of wedding planning easy!
