City of Lake Worth’s “Farmers Market Waterside” opens at 9:00 a.m. tomorrow.

Do you like organics, Peruvian ceviche, fresh juice, beekeepers, vendors and crafters too? Or how about books to learn more about our little City of Lake Worth? Learn more about location and hours below.

Stop by and check out “The Cottages of Lake Worth — Living Large in Small Spaces” hardcover book
at the Farmers Market Waterside.
Two other convenient places to find the Cottages book in Downtown Lake Worth are the City’s news-
stand at 600 Lake Ave. and bookstore
at 801 Lake Ave. (The Book Cellar just
recently opened
in our City).

The Farmers Market in Lake Worth is open every Saturday until April from 9:00 a.m.–1:00 in Old Bridge Park* across A1A from the scenic Lake Worth Beach and Casino complex (10 S. Ocean Blvd.). Each week the market features between 45 and 60 booths, including fresh produce, mini-donuts, Southern shrimp and grits, sweet and savory foods, and local artisans as well.

Lake Worth City Manager Michael Bornstein encourages everyone to attend and published a special City newsletter titled, “Farmers Market Waterside Returns”:

“Relationships are central to the market’s culture. Eliminating a third party distributor allows residents to have a close relationship with the person who is growing or making their food. As residents return to the market on a weekly basis, they will get to know the vendors, leading to a better understanding of local produce, food, and art.”

*If you’re coming from the west, take Lake Ave. to Old Bridge Park (also called “Hot Dog Park”) located over the Robert Harris (“Lake Worth”) Bridge on the east side of the Intracoastal. The Farmers Market is the park and parking lot at the base of the former Lake Worth bridge on the north side of the road.
