Our first cold front is coming this weekend in Palm Beach County which means a few things, less humidity and more great outdoor events and activities to enjoy. I put together some of my favorite October events for West Palm Beach.
WEST PALM BEACH GREEN MARKET
SATURDAY – OCTOBER 3rd 9am- 1:00pm
The West Palm Beach Green Market starts back up on Saturday, October 3, 2015! It has been running for the past 20 years and gets better every year.
It will run from 9:00am to 1:00pm Downtown at the West Palm Beach Waterfront. There will be 80 local community vendors including 23 new vendors. The weather will be beautiful this weekend, you can stroll the waterfront with all the amazing local vendors carrying fresh produce, fresh flowers and local products. They will have live music, unlimited mimosas for $10, free kids activities and will do monthly chef showcases.
The West Palm Beach GreenMarket will have the theme of “CrEATe Fresh” which is looking to inspire creativity and your palette. They will feature local chefs from around Palm Beach County that will work with vegetable and fruit displays.
The City of West Palm Beach is hosting a social media contest throughout the month of October where patrons are invited to post their GreenMarket “CrEATe Fresh” inspired dishes on Instagram. Make sure you tag @westpalmbch, and use the hastag #createfreshwpb to be entered to win a cooking class from the Lincoln Culinary Institute in West Palm Beach.
The market will run every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. thru the end of April. The GreenMarket is dog friendly and free. You can now take your boat and dock at the free docking. Take a bike so you don’t have to worry about parking but if you are driving, make sure you park in the FREE parking garage in the Banyan & Evernia city parking garages.
