West Palm Beach GreenMarket-APRIL 20th LAST DAY!

Voting for USA TODAY’s 10Best “Best Farmers Market” ends on Monday, April 15 at 11:59 a.m. EDT, right before the end of the GreenMarket 2023-24 season on April 20.

There it GROWS again! The West Palm Beach GreenMarket is growing – again! 125 vendors will sell various products, including fresh fruits and vegetables, coffees and teas, flowers and plants, homemade specialty items, desserts and treats, and so much more. 


The West Palm Beach Green Market’s mission is to provide the community with seasonal access to locally grown fresh fruits, vegetables, plants, and agricultural products. The market supports the southeast Florida agricultural community and stimulates agricultural development, particularly in Palm Beach County, by providing an outlet for locally grown crops and specialty products.

Mayor's Chess Challenge At The Library

Join the Boca Raton Public Library for the annual Mayors’ Chess Challenge in Boca Raton! Players of all ages, beginner and expert, are invited to play chess with other community members at the Spanish River Library branch on April 20, 2024, from 10:00am1:00pm.

Mayor Scott Singer says, “I’ve been honored to participate in past years of the Mayors’ Chess challenge to highlight the wonderful game of chess to our community and our children. Interest in chess has only risen over the last few years, and the Boca Raton Public Library is again looking forward to joining with other cities and hosting some great, young chess players.”

The Mayors’ Chess Challenge started in South Florida in 2014 to draw attention to the benefits of chess, one of the oldest and most intriguing of games, and is now hosted by over twenty cities throughout the year. Players of all ages and abilities learn critical-thinking skills, improve concentration and discipline, develop problem-solving skills, and build self-esteem and good sportsmanship. Plus, chess is fun! Participants can pick up a special “passport” to log all the local events they attend. Instructors will be on hand to help those new to the game.
