It’s officially fall and that means green markets and more events are starting to pop up across our area!
FRIDAY, Oct. 2
Twilight Green Market: the Wellington market is opening for the first time this season. Visitors can enjoy unique, locally-sourced, fresh produce from farmers. Artists and crafters will also be there. It’ll be open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Town Center Promenade on Forest Hill Boulevard. Admission and parking are free.
SATURDAY, Oct. 3
The West Palm Beach GreenMarket: it officially reopens from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the waterfront at the east end of Clematis Street! The months long event was cancelled midway through because of the pandemic. There are some changes this time around. There will be no activities for kids, no live music, and no food samples.
Oktoberfest celebrations are back: It’s yet another sign that fall is here. The City of Port St. Lucie will host one from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the MIDFLORIDA Credit Union Event Center. There will be German-themed music and decorations, and food and beverage will be available for purchase at a few bar locations and at food trucks. You can also enter your dog in the event’s first-ever wiener dog race. Safety measures will be in place and the best part — it’s free!
Feeding South Florida food distribution: It’ll take place from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. at the Greenacres Town Hall. Fresh produce, protein, dairy and shelf-stable items will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. You must remain in your vehicle, open your trunk and roll up windows for your safety and the safety of the volunteers.
SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, Oct. 3-4
The Marine Flea Market and Boat Show and the Treasure Coast Seafood Festival: These two exciting events are happening the entire weekend at the Indian River County Fairgrounds in Vero Beach. They are colliding both days from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. There will be boats for sale, nautical goods vendors, live music, and plenty of seafood! Tickets are $7 and kids 12 and under get in free.
