Vendor & Operations Manual

WELCOME TO THE GARDENS GREENMARKET      

This market began in January 2001 and has evolved into one of the largest greenmarkets in South Florida.  The Gardens GreenMarket, sponsored in good health by Palm Beach Gardens Medical Center, is a Farmer’s Market, Art and Food public event.  This is accomplished by providing fresh produce and a social gathering place to the community while encouraging the promotion of the agricultural industry. The market is a “green” shopping opportunity and a cultural event. 

Entering its 19th season, The Gardens GreenMarket has become a true Palm Beach County tradition by continuing to operate as a market that contributes to the success of local foods, growers, producers, small businesses and artisans.  This market also supports the performing arts by promoting local artistic talent and providing live entertainment to enhance a festive atmosphere for both vendors and shoppers.  By providing opportunities for farmers, agriculture related products, artisans and others to showcase their products, this market enables producers to sell directly to their customers and reap the rewards for their hard work and long hours. Expanding the economic strength/viability of local growers and small businesses positively impacts the health and wellness of our patrons.

The “Always Fresh” theme for this market is eye catching and has been well received by the public in our marketing and media promotions.  It truly conveys the purpose of a green market to patrons. New elements such as the kids’ area, started last season, have been a huge hit.  We will continue to strive to attract current, past, and new market attendees through monthly “highlights”, special attractions, and the inclusion again of art/culture related exhibits.
