Our Story

It was 1971 when Hans Duivenvoorden opened the original Road Stall outside the family flower farm in Monbulk. Named the Road Stall because it was a stall next to a road, Hans made up for his lack of flair for naming by bringing beautiful flowers fresh from the farm gate to the people of Monbulk (and a few blow-ins). It wasn’t long before the Road Stall was more than just a little stall and soon became a Monbulk institution.

In 2014, more than forty years after the original, the family opened The Road Stall on Spring Street, bringing the same farm direct flowers to the CBD. Today we’re more committed than ever to supporting the farms of Monbulk, Victoria and  bringing Melbourne the freshest seasonal flowers from farmers we’ve actually visited and know. We are also an eco friendly florist! We recycle all of our green waste, use recycled paper and don't use unrecyclable materials such as floral foam, plastic flower wrappings and plastic vessels. More what it was like 40 years ago!
