GreenMarket

February 13, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00 am on Saturday, repeating until April 30, 2021

There will be several initial changes this year for the safety of GreenMarket customers, vendors, and staff, who are expected to comply with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Florida Department of Health, State of Florida, and Palm Beach County COVID recommendations.

Included in the changes are the suspension of activities for kids, additional café seating, live music, food samples, and bottomless mimosas. Single mimosas will be available for purchase for $4 at the entrance. Merchant tents will be placed 10 feet apart. Attendees must wear masks to enter, will need to follow a path, and are encouraged to shop quickly. Hand sanitizing and hand washing stations will be placed throughout. Pre- and post-shopping, attendees are encouraged to patronize the multiple downtown restaurants’ Dining on the Spot locations.


The City of West Palm Beach’s GreenMarket and its 90+ vendors have pledged to eliminate plastic straws, coffee stirrers and Styrofoam cups and containers from the market. The initiative, which is a collaboration between the Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, is making a measurable mark on the City’s efforts to enhance the viability of West Palm Beach as a modern model of healthy, environmentally progressive, ecologically sustainable and resilient urban living. The City also encourages vendors to eliminate single-use plastic bags and is suggesting patrons arrive by the City’s popular and free trolleys. Though we sometimes feel small when working as individuals, our collective efforts make a huge impact!
