Go green year-round at the Green Market

It happens every Sunday. Farmers, crafters, bread makers and all sorts of other local vendors converge on Palm Beach Gardens and offer their wares at the city’s thriving Green Market. Now in its twelfth year, the Green Market has become the city’s signature event. It’s quite the happening. An average of 1,200 people attend during the summer and that number soars to more than triple that during the season, when there are as many as 140 vendors manning tables and covered stalls. The variety of products changes constantly, but always includes staples like garden-fresh vegetables and fruits, freshly caught seafood, just-baked breads, and locally produced cheeses. Other vendors sell handcrafted merchandise ranging from candles to jewelry to artwork. The City of Palm Beach Gardens juries all of the crafts to ensure that they are handmade and unique, not bought in bulk. There is also entertainment, ranging from local musicians to full live bands during the season. The Green Market is held at the STORE Self Storage & Wine Storage (11010 N. Military Trail) every Sunday through September 29, 8am to 1pm. Then, starting Sunday, October 6, the event will be held at the Palm Beach Gardens City Hall (10500 N. Military Trail).
