The West Palm Beach GreenMarket returns for the season tomorrow to Flagler Drive with some changes.
City officials tell us that the nearly 100 vendors have pledged to eliminate plastic straws, coffee stirrers and styrofoam cups.
The city is also encouraging vendors to eliminate single-use plastic bags like the ones at grocery stores and suggesting that you use the free trolleys to get to the waterfront.
All of this is an effort by the Mayor's Office of Sustainability to be more environmentally friendly.
The Greenmarket runs from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. every Saturday through April 20th.
Here are more details from the city:
The West Palm Beach GreenMarket is produced by the City of West Palm Beach Department of Parks and Recreation, Community Events, and will run weekly through Saturday, April 20, 2019, except for Saturday, March 30, 2019, due to the Palm Beach International Boat Show. The GreenMarket is friendly to dogs on short leashes and is always free. Parking is available in two City garages, both just blocks from the waterfront. Parking is free in the Evernia/Olive garage during market hours and a flat fee of $5 in the Banyan/Olive garage before 1 p.m.
