Yellow Green Farmers Market

Hello to all my fellow travelers! In honor of the newest addition to our family, Sheridan Ocean Club , this month we decided to go down the street and check out one of the biggest farmers markets I’ve ever seen - Yellow Green Farmers Market .

According to their website, The Yellow Green Farmers Market is a “dynamic outdoor venue that connects local producers and artisans with the community.” In addition to food and artisanal crafts, the culture of the market includes live music and other market happenings such as yoga, art and dance classes. They have over 350 different booths! We had a great time exploring all the food, drinks, and artisan products.

First, let’s talk about the practical stuff. Yellow Green Market is located just West of Interstate 95 and Sheridan Street. You’ll want to park in the North Lot where the first 30 minutes are free. After that, a flat all-day rate of $10.00 will apply. We arrived at the parking lot, grabbed our ticket, and jumped on the free golf cart ride (leaving a tip, of course) to the entrance.

We started with the outside area, which is bigger than many Farmers Markets in their entirety. Immediately upon entry, we were greeted by the mouthwatering smells of BBQ and this guy.

The outside vendors were a smorgasbord of fruit smoothies, acai bowls, juices, ice creams, and barbeque. If you are a meat eater, this place is for you! If you are not, there is plenty for you to eat as well, such as this great booth that sells street corn!

We made our way inside to discover row upon row of vegetable stands, spices, nuts, fruits and food from all over the world! After purchasing my required beet chips and crystalized ginger, we headed to the tea shop, where I bought some spices, and two tea mixes to make cold brewed iced tea to beat off the Florida heat.

We also checked out some of the products, like the booth where I bought a vegan “leather” purse for my sister that was made out of cork, but felt just like suede!

After sometime shopping and perusing, we stopped at an indoor cafe for some yummy pork and veggie tacos, then made our way to the second outside portion, where we had Frosés, which, if you haven't had the pleasure, are a frozen rosé concoction that seems ready made for an outdoor farmers market kind of day.
After a long day of eating, drinking and shopping, we were ready to head home. It was a great time, and I will definitely be back. Next time, I think I will come later in the day, where I can sit at the bar and listen to the live bands that are booked from 4-7 PM.

While the market has so much to offer as it is, there are some great changes and add ons coming in the near future: The Nest and The Station.

The Nest will be an air-conditioned trove of antiques, collectibles and more, while the Station “transforms the old-world tradition of the marketplace into an air-conditioned, style-appointed shopping and dining experience.”
