Boca Raton GreenMarket will have special offerings on Easter Saturday, March 31. The lively market, at the intersection of S. Federal Highway and SE Mizner Boulevard, has more than 40 vendors.
Market Coordinator Emily Lilly said they have four different flower booths including Art of Petal which has “cute little arrangements,” Marlene’s, Estelle Orchids, and the corner floral booth, Bary’s, with its wide array of affordable roses in different colors. (Be sure to ask about their weekly bouquet special.) One of the other vendors, Samantha, stopped by to pick out a bouquet, debating between a pale pink or a more vivid color of rose.
Lilly said another vendor makes special doggy treats – and had them packaged in Easter wrap. And the vendor Cool Beans makes their own chocolate, she said.
Adam at the Local Honey booth said they now offer Citrus Honey, as well as a new harvest of Saw Palmetto. He described the taste of Wild Melaleuca as having a hint of rum notes. These are just a few of his 17 “Lip Smakin’ Good” raw and unfiltered Florida honeys.
Fresh European-style pastries are sold by Le Petit Pain and Saquella Café (the latter offers a free cup of coffee to go with a purchased pastry). And when you first walk into the market, be sure to stop by new booth Stephies, for a made-to-order smoothie, giant cookies, and crumb cake.
MisGreg’s Produce, with its wide array of vegetables, greens and fruits, has been with the market since it first opened 21 years ago. It is one of two produce vendors at the market.
Check out the seasonal Saturday market that meets, rain or shine, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. through Mother’s Day weekend. (Saturday, May 12 will be its last day until the end of October.)
