Greenmarket in West Palm Beach
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.
