Meet the Shambles Market Trader: Wigginton Road Nurseries

A family-run business since 1976, Wigginton Road Nurseries is run by brothers, Gary and Andrew – specialising in a wide range of high-quality cut flowers and plants.

With a base on Shambles Market for many years, the Wigginton Road Nurseries stall located on Jubbergate has always offered a year-round selection of the very best seasonal flowers and plants. Hand-picked in Holland, the stall offers a fantastic range of fresh flowers, providing customers with some of the more unusual and unique options not available in supermarkets.

During lockdown the brothers have been busy with a bespoke delivery service – driving across York to deliver fresh flowers direct to people’s homes and bring some much-needed positivity and cheer!

Gary said: “It has been wonderful to see how people have been really getting behind local businesses and the support we’ve had with our flower delivery service over the last week has been absolutely superb. Customers have said it really helps to brighten their day, and how lovely it is to have a local delivery service like this, especially during lockdown.

“With our stock being purchased direct from Dutch wholesalers, the fresh flowers and plants are auctioned every day and prices will of course fluctuate with supply and demand. Over the coming weeks stock levels may also be limited by what we are able to get from our suppliers – however, we are keen to do everything we can to continue to provide this service where possible. When lockdown is over, this may continue to be something we offer our customers, along with the option to order for weddings and events.

“We’ve been on Shambles Market for a long time and seen many changes and improvements in recent years. Being part of the Shambles Market community is great – seeing new traders coming in and developments like the introduction of the Food Court has been really positive and people seem to really love the shopping experience and supporting their local traders.

I’d like to say a huge thank you to all our customers past and present for their outstanding support – it really is appreciated, and we look forward to returning to our stall when lockdown is over and seeing everyone again!”
