Due to the increasing popularity of using edible flowers, there are organic flower farms that are specifically growing flowers you can eat. As its not always possible to grow your own edible flowers, you’re probably asking where can I buy edible flowers? Ask at your local independently owned fruit and veg store as they often have contacts with local producers. Many farmers markets also supply edible flowers if there is a local grower.
I’ve also found that Instagram is a great place to find growers and suppliers #edibleflowers
