The “Best Farmers Market” in America is Now Accepting Vendor Applications

Application process to cover two seasons: 2023 – 2024 and 2024 – 2025

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – From sugar and spice to everything nice, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket is looking for new and returning vendors to apply for a two-year term for the 2023 2024 and 2024 2025 seasons. The single application for the “Best Farmers Market” in the U.S., as voted on in a USA TODAY 10Best Readers’ Choice poll in 2021 and 2022, can be found on the City’s website wpb.org/events. The deadline to apply is March 31, 2023.

“Thanks to our amazing vendors, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket remains the most anticipated farmers market among locals and visitors alike,” said West Palm Beach Mayor Keith A. James. “Variety is what keeps our GreenMarket fresh. So, if you have something unique or are the best in your class, we encourage you to apply. We wish everyone the best of luck!”

The City opens an annual application process every March, and this year the application will cover two seasons. There will still be an application process in March 2024 for categories with availability.

The West Palm Beach GreenMarket is a Saturday morning favorite, offering patrons various products, including fresh gourmet food, desserts, homemade specialty items, fresh produce, and much more. This year’s GreenMarket is the largest to date, with more than 110 vendors and a physical expansion to the 200 block of Clematis Street. The current season runs weekly through Saturday, April 15, except Saturday, March 25, due to the Palm Beach International Boat Show.

“Since its humble beginning of only 13 vendors, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket has developed into a hallmark community event,” said Mary Pinak, community events manager for the City of West Palm Beach. “We are excited to see the Market further bloom as we continue to connect the neighborhood to their local businesses.”

The 29th season of the GreenMarket will open on Saturday, Oct. 7, 2023, and run through Saturday, April 13, 2024. Vendors sell various items, including fresh produce, exotic plants and flowers, herbs and spices, baked goods, gourmet and specialty foods, coffee and tea, and much more. The Community Events Division of the City of West Palm Beach Parks and Recreation Department produces the GreenMarket.

The GreenMarket’s mission is to provide the community seasonal access to locally grown fresh fruits and vegetables, plants, and agricultural products. The market supports the Southeast Florida agricultural community and stimulates agricultural development, particularly in Palm Beach County, by providing an outlet for locally grown crops and specialty products. The West Palm Beach GreenMarket has been featured in The Boston Globe and named the No. 1 green market in Florida by Cooking Light magazine. More recently, the GreenMarket was recognized by VISIT FLORIDA with a silver Flagler Award at the tourism marketing cooperative’s annual Florida Governor’s Conference on Tourism.  

Sponsors of the 2022 – 2023 GreenMarket season include Joe DiMaggio’s Children Health Specialty Center, Paradise Exteriors, Jaguar Palm Beach, Land Rover Palm Beach, Bambino by BG011 Cleaning Services, NextHome Real Estate Executives, NW Mutual – The McKernan Financial Group, Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections, Humana, Stretch Zone, WPBF 25 News, SUNNY 107.9, New Country 103.1, The Palm Beach Post, WPB Magazine, and West Palm Beach Community Redevelopment Agency.
