The West Palm Beach GreenMarket is produced by the City of West Palm Beach Department of Parks and Recreation, Community Events, and will be open each Saturday from October 6, 2018 - April 20, 2019, except for Saturday, March 30, 2019, due to the Palm Beach International Boat Show. Check back in the spring for details on our pop up ‘Hurry to Currie’ market, which will make a return on Saturday, March 30 at Currie Park.
On the third Saturdays, starting in November, visitors can take advantage of “By the Banyan” walking tours, which point on key historical locations throughout the downtown community. The 90-minute guided tour starts at 10 a.m. and is led by architect and historian Rick Gonzalez. The tour will highlight the evolution of downtown West Palm Beach buildings and landmarks.
Tours begin “by the Banyan tree” on the east end of Clematis Street, 101 N. Clematis St., and end at the Richard and Pat Johnson Palm Beach County History Museum, at 300 N. Dixie Hwy. Tickets are $10 per person and tours are rain or shine. Visitors can learn more and purchase tickets by visiting www.hspbc.org/events/#historytours or calling 561.832.4164 ext. 2.
