Best Farmers' Market in Broward County Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach 2007 - Festival Marketplace
The quest for a bona fide New York pickle will take connoisseurs to the Festival Marketplace, but that's not all they'll find in the 30,000-square-foot farmers' market. Bins overflow with fresh artichokes and asparagus. Apples and bananas look freshly picked, their colors brighter even than they appear under the fluorescent lights of Whole Foods. By the time shoppers have finished raiding this treasure-trove of produce, they've worked up a powerful appetite which makes the nearby international food court a godsend. The Festival Marketplace has one of the few Broward County farmers' markets that's open daily so when a recipe calls for rare, fresh legumes, this can be a one-stop shopping destination.
