It’s hard to tell when the seasons start changing from summer to fall in South Florida. The return of the pumpkin spice latte is a good indiction…and so is the return of the West Palm Beach GreenMarket!
On Saturday, October 6th, the City of West Palm Beach will bring back the popular outdoor market for all to enjoy.
The 2018 – 2019 season will include more than 90 vendors selling locally-grown food, fresh flowers, decadent baked goods, vegan offerings, coffees, teas, spices, handmade items, homey finds, and much more.
The Saturday staple, which runs annually from the first weekend in October through mid-to-late April, is the premier place to bring the family – pets included. It takes place weekly on the West Palm Beach Great Lawn, which is on North Clematis, just west of Flagler Drive, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
“I’m so pleased with how the West Palm Beach GreenMarket has evolved over time,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Jeri Muoio. “The GreenMarket is more than a wonderful destination and a nationally-recognized hot spot to shop. It’s also an event-destination that really celebrates our vibrant community, our beautiful waterfront, and the gathering of neighbors, friends and families for conversation, shopping, or a good, locally-grown bite to eat.”
The West Palm Beach GreenMarket is produced by the City of West Palm Beach Department of Parks and Recreation, Community Events, and will run weekly through Saturday, April 20, 2019, except for Saturday, March 30, 2019, due to the Palm Beach International Boat Show. The GreenMarket is friendly to dogs on short leashes and is always free.
Parking is available in two City garages, both just blocks from the waterfront. Parking is 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.
