OFF TO MARKET – 17th Year at the BOCA RATON GREENMARKET
Boca Raton—Grab your shopping bags and head on over to the Boca Raton GreenMarket scheduled beginning October 5, 2013, 8am to 1pm, and continuing each Saturday through May 10, 2014. Now in its 17th 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 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.
Best of all, Boca’s GreenMarket has become ‘thee’ place to visit on Saturday mornings….as is often heard by vendors and shoppers alike, it’s just a ‘fun’ place to be on Saturday morning in a relaxed atmosphere….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 from 10am to Noon.
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.
