Following Governor Ron DeSantis’s recommendation to local municipalities to strongly consider limiting or postponing mass gatherings in the State of Florida, Mayor Keith A. James and the City of West Palm Beach have ordered the cancellation of the following city events through June 30, 2020: Clematis by Night, Screen on the Green, and Sunday on the Waterfront.
Due to the National State of Emergency, the City of West Palm Beach suspended its 2019 – 2020 GreenMarket season. The expected end date for the popular Saturday market was April 18, however, the City closed the season early due to the COVID-19 crisis. "Lettuce” not go nuts until we “meat” again! Stay safe, stay home and stay tuned for updates on the GreenMarket’s return.
The City of West Palm Beach’s GreenMarket and its 90+ vendors have pledged to eliminate plastic straws, coffee stirrers and Styrofoam cups and containers from the market. The initiative, which is a collaboration between the Parks and Recreation Department and the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability, is making a measurable mark on the City’s efforts to enhance the viability of West Palm Beach as a modern model of healthy, environmentally progressive, ecologically sustainable and resilient urban living. The City also encourages vendors to eliminate single-use plastic bags and is suggesting patrons arrive by the City’s popular and free trolleys. Though we sometimes feel small when working as individuals, our collective efforts make a huge impact!
