It’s Thyme to celebrate! The West Palm Beach GreenMarket, the premier Saturday spot to gather fresh food and local goods, kicked off its 25th season on Saturday, October 5, 2019. One of the largest markets in the region, the GreenMarket features a variety of products, including fresh produce, exotic plants and flowers, herbs and spices, baked goods, gourmet and specialty foods, coffee and teas, and much more. The GreenMarket also features live music, unlimited mimosas for $10, free activities for kids, plus plentiful green space and seating for a morning of fun and relaxation. This Saturday morning ritual in downtown West Palm Beach is the place to see and be seen! The GreenMarket is dog-friendly and always FREE.
Parking is available in two City garages; both just blocks from the waterfront. Parking is free in the Evernia/Olive garage during market hours and for a flat fee of $5 in the Banyan/Olive garage before 1 p.m. Those interested in arriving by boat can also take advantage of the City's free public docks. Locals and visitors are also encouraged to arrive the sustainable way – on the City’s free and fun trolley. The incredibly popular transport system cuts down on CO2 emissions by eliminating car trips and has several routes with stops near the GreenMarket. In addition, those wishing to ride their bikes downtown can utilize the complimentary bicycle valet located next to Rocco’s Tacos on the 200 block of Clematis Street. The valet, sponsored by the Downtown Development Authority, will be open during GreenMarket hours.
