New Year’s Resolutions…South Florida Style!

Whether you are looking to make South Florida your permanent home or are planning a seasonal residency during the winter season, you will find that we South Floridians have an interesting take on New Year’s resolutions.

Experts agree that the number one resolution for most adults in the United States (US) is to get more physically fit.  A close second is to pay better attention to what you eat.  Yes, the adage, “You are what you eat,” really does matter; however, this does not need to be an intimidating undertaking.  According to Cynthia Sass, a nutritionist with the University of South Florida in Tampa and a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association® in an article by Jeanie Lerche Davis in a WebMD® feature article, “When making dietary changes, “start small,” she says.“  Set a few realistic goals.  In the long run, you’ll have better self-esteem and more self-confidence because you’ll actually stick with them.”

What better way to kick-start your resolution for change than to patron one of the several fantastic green and farmers markets in the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast?

Here are a few that we have found:

Ft. Pierce Downtown Farmers Market – “Ranked one of the top 5 nationally for America’s Favorite Farmer’s Markets™” since 1997, there are usually over 70 friendly vendors that offer a wonderful and diverse selection of delicious foods, exotic plants, savory spices, and much more!  Bring the whole family and your pets every Saturday, (rain or shine) between 8am to noon.  Come enjoy our special events and great bands.  There is always great music, great food, and a great time waiting for you.

Stuart Green Market – Every Sunday from 9am until 1pm, the quaint Stuart market dates back to the late 1990s, with funding and support through downtown Stuart’s Main Street organization, the Stuart Green Market is located next to City Hall beside the picturesque St. Lucie River waterfront.

Jupiter’s Harbourside Place Green & Artisan’s Market – The Green & Artisan’s Market features farmers and food producers and the work of artisans from South Florida and is held every Sunday from December through April, from 10am-3pm. Catch up with friends and listen to live music while shopping.  Just-harvested local vegetables are highlighted at this farmer’s market with the farmers present to chat about the products from their fields.

The Gardens Greenmarket – The Gardens Greenmarket is celebrating its 16th season, located at the Palm Beach Gardens City Hall Municipal Complex.  At the Market, you can shop from over 120 vendors with an abundance of just-picked, orchard-grown goods, a wide selection of seasonal vegetables and fruits, fragrant herbs, honey, and homemade old-fashioned breads, pies, cheeses, sauces, handmade crafts, and much more.  The Gardens Greenmarket takes place every Sunday, year-round from 8:00am-1:00pm with live entertainment each week.

West Palm Beach Greenmarket – In its 23rd season, and fresh on the waterfront, the West Palm Beach Greenmarket has been attracting locals and tourists alike. With over 70 vendors, the Greenmarket represents hundreds of acres of local farm land.  The market is open from October 7th through April 21st on Saturdays from 9am until 1pm, and is located at the waterfront and City Commons.
