Summer GreenMarket Launches at Delray Beach Tennis Center
DELRAY BEACH, FL (June 9, 2015) – After 19 years, the Delray Beach GreenMarket is pleased to announce it will now operate the popular weekly event throughout the summer months. Located on the eastern half of the Delray Beach Tennis Center, the Summer GreenMarket will take place every Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon, beginning June 20 and ending September 26.
The purpose of the CRA is to improve the quality of life in the Delray Beach area, and its management of the GreenMarket is a positive extension of that mission. The Summer Green Market was established to fill the previously unmet demand for locally produced products and goods in the summer months.
“This request has really come from the community,” said Lori Nolan, GreenMarket Manager. “It’s been a long time coming, so we are excited the day has finally arrived!”
The Summer GreenMarket will be a slightly scaled back version of the regular Green Market, with about 30 to 35 vendors participating each Saturday morning. In addition, the hours will be from 9 a.m. until noon only, to avoid the summer afternoon heat. As always, the GreenMarket marks just another milestone the CRA has created toward providing a thriving community within its district.
The GreenMarket was launched in 1996 by the Delray Beach CRA and has since become one of the most popular and charming aspects of the city. The GreenMarket features numerous vendors from Palm Beach County and beyond, offering farm-to-fork produce, just picked citrus and juice, farm fresh eggs, raw milk and butter, 100% grass-fed and finished (antibiotic and hormone free) Florida beef, poultry, pork and lamb, fragrant artisan baked goods, plenty of gluten free, vegan and sugar free products, fresh cut flowers, plants and other unique gourmet fare along with live entertainment each week.
