West Palm Beach suspends GreenMarket and other events thru Jan. 24

The City of West Palm Beach announced on social media that it would be suspending operations for all City-permitted events through January 24th, 2021 due to a recent surge in COVID-19 cases.

The post says in part, “Due to a recent increase in the weekly COVID-19 positivity average, an anticipated post-holiday surge, and a slower than expected rollout of COVID-19 vaccine, the City of West Palm Beach is suspending all existing permits for events occurring through January 24, 2021. This will include events produced by the city, such as the GreenMarket, and any private or public property event permit issued or pending. The City will continue to monitor the situation and modify or extend the suspension as needed.”

People shop at the City of West Palm Beach GreenMarket on December 5, 2020. All attendees are required to wear facial coverings and abide by social distancing guidelines.

We will continue to monitor the situation and let you know when City-permitted events are allowed to take place once again.
