Readers of Clean Plate Charlie don't have to wait. Here's a sneak peek from 2015's Taste Guide, and you can follow this link to see other Taste Guide posts you may have missed.

Hollywood's Yellow Green Farmers Market is hardly a shrinking violet. Standing at a whopping 100,000 square feet, the sprawling building is marked by neon-hued flags, colorful banners, and a distinctive tin roof.

It's hard to miss -- once you know it's there. But located in an otherwise-residential neighborhood, the locavore landmark doesn't get much in the way of foot traffic. Many South Floridians are still unaware it even exists.

Despite that, the community market has grown rapidly since its launch five years ago. From Yelp reviews to Instagram shots to Facebook shares, social media and word of mouth have led folks from across the region to seek out its unique bounty of produce and products.

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'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Rebecca McBane is the arts and culture/food editor for New Times Broward-Palm Beach. She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
