Mark your calendars for the return of the West Palm Beach GreenMarket.

Returning for its 22nd season on Oct. 1, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket will highlight 82 vendors, including 15 new merchants and an opening day produce market featuring food grown by local students.

The market will take place on the West Palm Beach Waterfront every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. until April 22.

“This is going to be a stellar year for the GreenMarket and our vendors are just as excited as we are for opening day,” Mary Pinak, City of West Palm Beach community events manager, said in a statement. “In addition to the special student showcase on opening day, we also have several new vendors for our savvy shoppers to enjoy all season long.”

The West Palm Beach GreenMarket strives to give the community the best selections of baked goods, gourmet and specialty foods; exotic plants and flowers; coffee and teas; and seasonal fresh produce.

This Saturday, the market will be selling fruits and vegetables grown by “Farmers in Training," students from local community centers including Gains Park, South Olive, Pleasant City and Coleman Park. Proceeds will benefit local Center Gardening Programs.

Live music, $10 unlimited mimosas and free activities for the kids will also be available while locals do their afternoon shopping. Dogs are also welcome to come along for the day.
