Go Green

The West Palm Beach GreenMarket on Waterfront Commons

You simply cannot let another Saturday go by without a visit to the West Palm Beach GreenMarket.

Cooking Light magazine calls it the best in Florida. Now in its 22nd year, it was the area’s first and is surely the most extensive.

More than 80 vendors offer local and organic produce, plants, herbs, exotic flowers, baked goods, coffees, teas, olive oils, spices, candy, meat, seafood, cheeses, and artisan housewares.

You can crunch a half-sour pickle, slurp up a messy Cuban sandwich, or grab yourself a “walkaround cone” of apple cider doughnuts (our guilty pleasure). We love to cherry-pick the freshest and most unusual produce and then go home and create our evening meal around it.

The GreenMarket runs from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays from October through April (this year’s last market is April 22). It’s held on the Waterfront Commons (Flagler Drive & Clematis), and parking is free at both the Banyan and Evernia garages. Coming by boat? You can dock nearby. And don’t leave the dog at home, because it’s pet-friendly.
