Saturday marks much-anticipated annual return of WPB’s waterfront GreenMarket

Posted On: 09-29-2015

More than 75 community vendors—from farmers to seafood purveyors, cheese-makers, confectioners and more—are on tap for Saturday’s anticipated annual return of West Palm Beach’s waterfront GreenMarket.

And when the alfresco market opens at 9 a.m. Oct. 3 in downtown West Palm Beach—along and around Centennial Square and Waterfront Commons—it’ll also feature area chefs’ fruit-and-vegetable displays as part of a multi-faceted GreenMarket theme called “CrEATe Fresh.”

It’s the GreenMarket’s 21st year, having launched in 1994 in the old City Hall parking lot with 13 vendors.

The market, with live musical entertainment and children’s activities, is held 9 a.m.-1 p.m. every Saturday (with the exception of a few dates coinciding with large downtown festivals) through May 28.

“We love getting ready for the opening of our GreenMarket season,” says Katrina Resch, the City of West Palm Beach’s GreenMarket manager. “It’s one of the city’s most beloved events and people can’t wait until opening day.”

Vendors set for this Saturday fall under a number of categories, including produce, plants and flowers, gourmet foods, baked goods, snacks, cafes and restaurants, seafood, meat, dairy, crafts and more.

Nearly a third of the 79 vendors are making their GreenMarket debut this season. They range from a Taste and See Creations (confections) to Spen Wen Agriculture (produce), Andre Gourmet Sauce Co., Smoking Gator BBQ and others.

As part of this season’s “CrEATe Fresh” theme, not only will Palm Beach County chefs feature their fruit-and-vegetable displays, but GreenMarket patrons are invited enter a social-media contest during October by posting photos they’ve taken of dishes of food they’ve created using products sold at the GreenMarket.

Those who share their “CrEATe Fresh” GreenMarket dish on Instagram (tag @westpalmbch and with hashtag #createfreshwpb) will be entered to win a cooking class at the Lincoln Culinary Institute.

The GreenMarket is dog-friendly, and parking during market hours is free in the Banyan Street and Evernia Street city garages; boaters can take advantage of the city’s free public docks downtown along the Intracoastal Waterway.
