Greenmarket in West Palm Beach

  • f

The Greenmarket, held on Saturday mornings indowntown W.P.B. just north of Centennial Square,is worth checking out. Finally went there after thinkingabout it for the last two years. This is what I found:Three or four vendors selling super-fresh local produce, including truly excellent tomatoes. Not cheap, but not a rip-off either. Some beautiful burgundy-colored ones that are sugar sweet.A Finnish baker that makes cardamom bread, superbpasties ( meat and rutabaga-filled turnovers) andsalmon pies. Also, Renaissance Bakery selling an astounding variety of custom breads. I selected thekalamata loaf. Delicious.Sisters in the Pot, some large Bahamian womencranking out hot conch fritters, conch salad, chickenw/stewpeas and rice and other savoury delicacies.A team whipping up gourmet omelets and wafflesand other breakfast treats. Three or four vendors ofcafe con leche, lattes and what-have-you. Other folks selling fresh seafood, cut flowers, plants,potted herbs, roasted nuts, etc. Not a bad way tostart the weekend.
