Flowers on Broad Street

Nestled in the charming historic district of Fuquay-Varina, NC, Flowers on Broad Street’s story began on March 1, 1997. With such an idyllic setting, one might expect to walk into a quaint little shop that sells flowers. Instead, open the door and find yourself in a secret garden. Filled with a surprisingly delightful collection of flowers, charming vintage pieces, wreaths that will make your door win best on the block, and other really fun stuff to hold flowers and plants.


Fuquay-Varina Downtown Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to building a community that supports local businesses and private investment in our historic core. Since 1993, activities and programs created by Fuquay- Varina Downtown bring foot traffic and customers to our downtown core and educate residents on the importance of the support local movement.
