Travelling to Jakarta - Jakarta Wonder No. 5

Rawa Belong Flower Market
Text by Sari Widiati Photos by Yoppy Pieter

Twenty-four hours a day, there's always something happening in Jakarta. One bustling center of activity is the Rawa Belong flower market, a flower and ornamental plant promotion and marketing center in West Jakarta.

The action begins each morning at two, when nearly all the flower dealers start unloading their flowers. The best time to visit is between 3 and 7 am, when the flowers and plants are still fresh and the selection is still complete.

Rawa Belong Flower Market was established on 25 July 1989 on an area of 1.4 hectares and has since been the barometer for the growth of Indonesia's flower and ornamental plant business. The supplies of cut flowers and ornamental plants are brought in from farmers in Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, and East Java, and are then distributed to various places to meet the demands of consumers, both within Jakarta itself and elsewhere in the country, and even for export.

Each day, transactions take place involving between 500 and 1000 customers – florists, individuals, offices, hotels, social halls, and caterers.

Flower products such as orchids, subtropical (mountain) flowers, roses, bouquets, decorative leaves, and other such accessories are available, all fresh and in excellent condition. You can also buy agricultural supplies – fertilizer, pesticides, shears, and spades, and a complete range of garden decorations.
