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.
