When we travel, we enjoy visiting and shopping at farmers markets and while the pickins are scarce where we are staying, there are several within an hour’s drive on the Atlantic coast. Our first one was the Palm Beach Gardens Green Market which seems to be put on by the city and is held in a parking lot beside the municipal building.
With more than 120 vendors, it is a very big market with my two photos showing only about ¼ of it.
It is a collection of arts & crafts, produce, prepared foods, bakeries, plants, seafood, cheese, and food & drink vendors and they were all intermingled so you had to walk the entire market to find all of the produce, for example. I didn’t take many specific shots but this quiche looked too good to walk by.
As you can see from above, it was very well attended and a parking space was hard to come by – I’ve never seen so many clean cars in my life and being where we were the high dollar models were pretty common.
We ended up buying a little produce, some baked goods, two quarts of bisque, made from Maine lobster, and a quart of spicy sour pickles – hard for me to believe no jewelry was purchased. If in the area and you like farmers markets/ craft fairs you will probably want this one on your must see list.
From the market, we headed over to the beach and drove Ocean Drive north to Jupiter before heading back to the campground.
We all commented at never seeing the Atlantic look prettier.
Photos best if enlarged by clicking on them.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.
