October welcomes the return of the Royal Palm Beach Green Market & Bazaar to its beautiful lakeside location at Village Hall. Come out for some fresh air and celebrate the opening day of the market’s eighth season on Saturday, Oct. 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The arrival of COVID-19 brought an early closure to the market last season, which caused its vendors to feel the devastating financial impact much earlier than most, as their livelihoods came to a screeching halt. With the re-opening of the market only weeks away, many vendors eagerly await the hope of a prosperous year to come.
This season, the Royal Palm Beach Green Market & Bazaar will be focusing on safety and following social distancing protocols. Some of these enhanced safety measures will include greater spacing between vendor booths, frequent cleaning and sanitization of high-touch areas, and the addition of hand sanitizing stations and directional and distancing signage throughout the market.
The green market now requires that all people, including staff, vendors and visitors, to respect the market’s public safety guidelines and observe the current facial covering requirements while at the market.
With these safety precautions in place, you are invited to once again come back outdoors and spend time in the fresh air with your family and friends, and stroll the lakeside vendors and merchants at the Royal Palm Beach Green Market & Bazaar.
Patrons of the green market can support their community by shopping for locally grown plants and organic products, including a wide selection of produce ranging from fruits and vegetables to herbs and spices. There will also be everything from fresh fish and seafood to flowers and everyday favorites like delicious baked goods, pastries, local honey and food trucks.
The market also offers artisan and vegan foods, along with a unique selection of artists and crafters selling jewelry, handicrafts, gemstones, clothing, soaps, pet treats and other interesting wares. Come out and see several new vendors, along with all of the local favorites that many who support the market have grown to know and love. The Royal Palm Beach Green Market & Bazaar is a pet friendly market, so bring them along. Admission to the market is free with plenty of free on-site parking.
The Royal Palm Beach Green Market & Bazaar is located at 1050 Royal Palm Beach Blvd. at the southeast corner of Okeechobee Blvd. and Royal Palm Beach Blvd. The market will be open rain or shine on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. from Oct. 10, 2020 through April 24, 2021 and will be closed on Saturday, Dec. 26 for Christmas weekend.
