Store Policy

In order to shop at one of our stores, we ask customers to register as a Mt. Eden customer or display a current San Francisco Flower Mart badge in order to make purchases.

To become a registered customer, complete and sign Mt. Eden’s new customer registration form, and submit with a copy of your valid resale or business license. Our team will review your documents. If you meet the customer requirements, we will provide you with a unique customer account. There is no fee to register as a Mt. Eden customer. Click here for more info on how to register, including how to get a copy of the registration form.

Customers are responsible for notifying Mt. Eden Floral about changes to account info including: a new or expired resale license, company contact info, and authorized buyers.
