Megan Arambul is a decades-long veteran of Portland’s vibrant floral scene. The Yakima native got her start at Portland’s legendary Sammy’s Flowers, where she worked as head buyer and merchandiser for 8 years while spearheading their citywide expansion into New Seasons Markets. She struck out on her own with Fieldwork Flowers in 2010, and has since cultivated a loyal customer base with her freeform approach to arrangements and her inclusion of surprising, culinary-related elements like blueberry branches and rose geranium.
Her long standing relationships with the area’s flower farming community ensures her access to unique, top-quality products, and her commitment to local sourcing remains a cornerstone of Fieldwork’s business ethos. During the pandemic-related shutdowns of 2020, Megan closed her SE Portland studio and took her business online, building bouquets in the home she shares with her very charming daughter PJ.
Our relationship with Megan stretches back years (she counts many of Portland’s best restaurants among her clients), so when she reached out to us a few months ago about reopening her studio in the back of Wellspent Market, the decision to say yes was an easy one. Megan’s enthusiasm for flowers, plants, and people is contagious, and we love having her at Wellspent Market.
Fieldwork’s constantly replenished inventory of locally grown products gives the shop a new vibrancy, filling our recently-expanded space with the rich colors and sweet aromas of Portland’s changing seasons. Her arrangements are unique, approachable and emphasize their locality; Megan encourages people to build bouquets with whatever might be growing in their garden, traditional or not, or to add something of their own to a Fieldwork bouquet.
The Fieldwork selection at Wellspent Market is always changing, but the assortment is always inspired, so please stop in and see (and smell!) the flowers sometime soon.
