Boca Raton GreenMarket (Hurry: It Ends May 7!)


Just as our friends to the north bid adieu to an insanely long winter and celebrate the start of Farmer's Market Season, South Florida says farewell to our beloved outdoor produce bazaars, most of which will shutter their stands until the late fall brings more tolerable temps.

Example: Boca Raton GreenMarket will soon go dark for another season when it hosts its last gathering on Saturday, May 7. The small but diverse market operates from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays, rain or shine, in the southwest parking lot of Royal Palm Place at Federal Highway and South Mizner Boulevard. It will reopen for the 2011/2012 season on October 8.

Go for broke and load up on one or two of each of Le Vinois' outstanding rugulah. My favorite is orange/chocolate. Mmmm.

The "Happy Pickle" doesn't suffer grumps, but he does make a mean antipasto.

You don't have to drop a lot at Missy and Greg's to walk away with enough produce to stock the kitchen until next week.

Future pie filling as far as the eye can see. Or at least for a foot or so in front of you.
