The West Palm Beach Green Market on Flagler!

West Palm Beach Green Market

If you haven’t had a chance to stroll the weekend green market in West Palm Beach you absolutely should! If you haven’t been to it on a Saturday yet, it is safe to say you’re missing out. The Green Market of West Palm Beach is a summer time event you shouldn’t miss. The Green Market is held at 101 South Flagler Drive on the West Palm Beach Waterfront. Over 60 vendors represent their farm fresh produce, hand made art and vibrant flowers at the Green Market.  If you want to be a vendor there is room for you too!  The market is known for its friendly vendors, buzzing atmosphere and unbelievable produce.

LOCAL, FRESH AND LOVELY

The market’s origin comes from inspiration of Italian and Spanish open-air markets. It began in October of 1994 when the former Mayor of West Palm Beach 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.

Come check out the newest thing at the Green Market, “Fresh on Wednesdays!” enjoy the market every Wednesday night from May 23 to September 19, 2012 from 5 to 8 pm. This market highlights the warm summer nights and avoids the heavy heat of summer days. Bring your friends and family to enjoy the fresh fruits and vegetables, hot meals including Spanish, American and European cuisine, live music, and the tropical native flowers and freshly baked breads and pastries. The Fresh on Wednesdays Green Market is a must do for you, your friends, and your family. Parking is available in the Banyan Street garage.
