Support the independent voice of South Florida and help keep the future of New Times free.

We've got a breeze. Hurricane season's almost over. And the Greenmarkets are opening again. It's everybody's favorite time of year, and starting this Saturday we'll be getting used to the quaint sight of folks tottling along our streets with a loaf of bread under one arm, a potted plant under the other, and trailing fresh goat-cheese scented fumes. Local greenmarkets purvey everything from heirloom tomatoes to wild Alaska salmon, from Florida steamer clams to rare French cheeses, lavender-flavored maple syrup, and the guacamole and cider donuts so beloved of New Times' staff.

Greenmarkets are scheduled to open Saturday October 18th in Lake Worth, West Palm Beach, and Abacoa; on Saturday, October 25th in Delray; and on Saturday, November 8 in Boca Raton. So get out the WD-40 and oil up those wheely carts!

Keep New Times Broward-Palm Beach Free... Since we started New Times Broward-Palm Beach, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of South Florida, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering South Florida with no paywalls.
