The Winter GreenMarket officially ended another successful season on May 18th, 2019.  The Winter GreenMarket featured 65 + premier farmers and artisans this past season.  Snowbirds, vacationers, and year round residents enjoyed farm-fresh produce, citrus, eggs, raw milk and butter as well as 100% grass-fed and finished Florida beef, poultry, pork and lamb.  We also enjoyed artisan baked goods and hand-made items all season long.  Going to the Winter GreenMarket which is just a half block north of Atlantic Avenue has become a Saturday morning tradition for many people.  The nostalgia of going to the open air marketplace to purchase your provisions for the week is reminiscent of bygone years.  The
