Boca Raton GreenMarket
October 27, 2018 - May 11, 2019
OFF TO MARKET—22nd Year for the
BOCA RATON GREENMARKET
Boca Raton—It’s time once again to grab your shopping bags and head on over to the Boca Raton GreenMarket held every Saturday, 8am to 1pm, beginning October 27 through May 11, 2019. Now in its 22nd year of operation, the Market takes place at the south end of Royal Palm Place in the Monument Piazza parking area located at the intersection of S Federal Highway and SE Mizner Blvd. Plenty of parking is available adjacent to the GreenMarket vendor site.
Boca’s GreenMarket has continually been dedicated to local food production and consumption….produce that travels from farm direct or bakery oven to the dining table……and through the process supporting the Florida agricultural industry and the economy of our south Florida area. Each Saturday, fresh locally-grown fruits and vegetables as they become available in their individual growing seasons—along with fresh herbs, soaps & lotions, juices, potted orchids, ocean shells, fresh cut flowers, assorted variety of plants, fresh baked goods, prepared foods, oils & vinegars, gourmet foods, hydroponic and organic foods, fresh fish and seafood, fresh pasta, doggie treats —are available for purchase. Several of the vendors have participated since the Market began in 1996, with a few new vendors joining each year. Community service organizations participate from time to time to share information or to promote a special project.
The market has blossomed into a Saturday morning community meeting place to have a fresh cup of coffee, a bite to eat, listen to some music, pick up some local produce, plants, grab a gift for someone or restock handmade soaps or candles. It’s just a ‘fun’ place to be on Saturday morning in a relaxed setting, a place for the entire family, including the family pup, to enjoy a few hours in the out-of-doors.
Several special activities, promotions and customer giveaways are planned at various times throughout the Market season. Live music takes place on the Piazza Stage on select market days featuring local musicians. Free recycled shopping bags are available while supplies last.
The Boca Raton GreenMarket is supported by The Boca Raton Tribune, Florida Health & Chiropractic Medicine, Aurora Nurses Home Health Care, Inc., Investments Limited, Inc., Palm Beach County, Happy Day Creations, Premier Productions LLC, LivingFLA.com, and “FRESH from FLORIDA,” a promotional campaign of Florida’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Affairs.
