West Palm Beach GreenMarket Ranks Second in USA Today 10Best Poll

The West Palm Beach GreenMarket in Florida has been ranked second in the USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice poll for the best green markets in the country, behind the Worthington Farmers Market in Ohio. The GreenMarket had previously held the top spot for three consecutive years from 2021 to 2023, making it the only market to achieve such a feat.

The Worthington Farmers Market, which runs along a stretch of High Street in Old Worthington every Saturday from 8am to noon, was voted the best farmers market in the country by USA TODAY readers. The market features nearly 100 vendors from the Columbus area, selling high-quality food and plants. It adapts to the seasons, with an outdoor market in the summer and an indoor market during the rest of the year.

The West Palm Beach GreenMarket, established in 1995 by former Mayor Nancy Graham, takes place every Saturday from October through April and features over 125 vendors selling local produce, goods, and more along the Intracoastal Waterway. The market is currently on its seasonal break but will reopen in October, taking place every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Why this matters: The USA Today 10Best Readers' Choice Awards highlight the best in travel, food, and lifestyle across the country, as voted by readers. The recognition of the West Palm Beach GreenMarket and Worthington Farmers Market showcases the growing popularity and importance of local, fresh produce and goods in communities nationwide.

Despite losing the top spot, the West Palm Beach GreenMarket remains a prominent destination. "The West Palm Beach GreenMarket still has game," the article notes, adding that it will be "gunning for the top position next season." The market finished its 2023-24 season on April 20 and is set to reopen in October, ready to compete for the coveted title once again.
