Market Street stores offered floral items — a Texas-grown greenery bouquet and basil and assorted herbs — in its annual Best of Texas Expo that took place weekends in July at all 11 Market Street stores in north and west Texas.
Bradley Gaines, director of floral for United/Market Street, said the heat and drought had limited floral offerings for the Best of Texas events that ended the last weekend in July. During the expo, stores featured top products from the Lone Star State, and had sample appetizers, entrees and desserts made from products grown in Texas.
Sample products, along with the floral greenery bouquets and herbs, included tamales, peaches, Campari tomatoes and jalapeno sausage. Guests could watch product demonstrations and Market Street team members were available each weekend throughout July to answer questions and provide recommendations.
Market Street stores are upscale, offering gourmet and healthier lifestyle items. A 12th Market Street location is scheduled to open in December in Flower Mound, TX.
