Fall is in full swing in South Florida, which can mean only one thing: farmers' markets. And lots of them.
The greenmarkets are back in business starting this month, and this year brings a few expansions and improvements to the outdoor market places we know and love. That includes everything from an unlimited Sunday-morning mimosa bar in West Palm Beach to dozens of new and specialty vendors at markets including Wellington and Royal Palm Beach.
If you're looking for the dates, times, addresses, and details on South Florida's most popular farmers' markets in Broward and Palm Beach counties, look no further.
We're fortunate to have a number of farmers' markets, many of which were established long ago — as well as a number of new ones started in the past few years. What you'll find on any given day depends on the season and the clientele the market attracts.
If you are specifically looking for local produce, markets like West Palm Beach's and Palm Beach Gardens will offer you a variety of certified organic products grown locally (and with no synthetic or conventional chemicals). Always ask: "When was it picked?" What time of day the farmer collects his or her harvest directly relates to the nutrient profile of the fruits and vegetables you buy. Example: Those who pick in the late afternoon ensure the most nutrient-dense (and thus tastiest) produce. Other markets focus less on fresh produce and more on specialty products and goods.
For example, the Sailfish Marina Sunset Celebration is all about crafts and live entertainment, although food and drink is available. Likewise, the Tequesta Market has some locally grown fruits and veggies; it's also known for selling meat, farm products, and arts and crafts.
