West Palm Beach GreenMarket
GREENMARKET Every Saturday; 9 a.m. - 1p.m. FREE | (GreenMarket will take place weekly on Saturdays beginning October 5, 2019 through April 18, 2020, with the exception of March 28, due to the Palm Beach International Boat Show) West Palm Beach Waterfront, 100 Clematis Street, West Palm Beach, FL 33401 It’s Thyme to celebrate! The West Palm Beach GreenMarket, the premier Saturday spot to gather fresh food and local goods, happens every Saturday from October to April. One of the largest markets in the region, the GreenMarket features a variety of products, including fresh produce, exotic plants and flowers, herbs and spices, baked goods, gourmet and specialty foods, coffee and teas, and much more. The GreenMarket also features live music, unlimited mimosas for $10, free activities for kids, plus plentiful green space and seating for a morning of fun and relaxation. This Saturday morning ritual in downtown West Palm Beach is the place to see and be seen! The GreenMarket is dog-friendly and always FREE. Due to Phase II of the Clematis Streetscape project, GreenMarket vendors will be temporarily located along Flagler Drive for part of the season. It is expected that the GreenMarket will return to its popular regular location in December, once road work is finished. (The project, which is widening sidewalks and adding more shade trees along Clematis Street, is expected to restrict load-in/load-out access for vendors). Parking is available in two City garages, both just blocks from the waterfront. Until the completion of Phase II of Clematis Streetscape, parking is free in the Evernia/Olive garage and in the Banyan/Olive garage before 1 p.m. Once road work is complete, parking will be free in the Evernia/Olive garage during market hours and a flat fee of $5 in the Banyan/Olive garage before 1 p.m. Those interested in arriving by boat can also take advantage of the City's free public docks. Locals and visitors are also encouraged to arrive the sustainable way – on the City’s free and fun trolley. The incredibly popular transport system cuts down on CO2 emissions by eliminating car trips and has several routes with stops near the GreenMarket. In addition, those wishing to ride their bikes downtown can utilize the complimentary bicycle valet located in the City Hall courtyard. The valet, sponsored by the Downtown Development Authority, will be open during GreenMarket hours.
