Summer Green Market Every Saturday in Palm Beach Gardens

Sometimes it seems like South Florida packs up for the summer, not realizing that there are people who live here year 'round. Many green markets close for the season, partly because of snowbirds flying north but mostly because the growing season is over and many farmers either take the summer off or migrate to farms north.

Luckily for us, Store Self Storage in Palm Beach Gardens starts its annual green market just as others are packing up in anticipation of the hot weather. 

Though you won't find many local greens, you will find a ton of other organic and local products from about 40 vendors that offer their wares every Saturday from now through September 15.


Though the vendors can vary weekly, count on some regulars like Joy of

Garlic, the Pickle Peddler, Olive Oils of the World, Tropical Oils &

Scents, Affordable Organics, and Oceana Coffee. Perusing the booths,

you'll find fresh fish (bring a cooler), tropical fruit trees for

planting, orchids, fresh baked goods, and fresh summer fruit in season.


Best of all, the green market is indoors, so thunderboomers and intense

heat is no deterrent -- this market happens rain or shine.  Shop every

Saturday this summer from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
