Fresh, Fun and Free: Don’t Miss the West Palm Beach Green Market Every Saturday!

Imagine walking beneath a vibrant canopy of orchids along the streets line byt the glistening Intercostal waters. Your senses will be filled with splashes of yellow sunflowers, rainbows of fruits and vegetables, smells of fresh baked goods and the sound of local music filling the air. This is just an idea of some of the sensations you’ll experience at the West Palm Beach Green Market. If you haven’t been to it on a Saturday yet, it is safe to say you’re missing out. It is held at 101 South Flagler Drive on the West Palm Beach Waterfront. Over 60 vendors represent their farm garden-fresh produce, hand made art and vivacious flowers at the Green Market.  If you have some great ideas to add to the market or want to be a vendor there is room for you too!  The market has built its reputation on its gracious vendors, bustling atmosphere and celebrated produce.

Italian and Spanish open-air markets have inspired the origin of the market. Started in October of 1994 by the former Mayor of West Palm Beach, when it was authorized it as one of the City’s Community Events.  Now locals and visitors alike anticipate the Green Market season. Green Market has a mission to provide the local society with the best in locally grown fruits, vegetables and agriculture. The market and its vendor also have a vision of supporting locally grown crops, helping to stimulate agricultural development, and backing the value added and specialty products.
