Get your Grower Permit now! Seasonal Green Markets to open soon.

Body

Green Markets are a distinct part of American culture reflecting each community's uniqueness and charm with regionally produced specialties for sale directly to the public.  Palm Beach County Green Market managers may request local growers of agricultural products to obtain a Grower's Permit prior to being an accepted vendor at their Green Market.  UF/IFAS Palm Beach County Extension Agents issue the Grower's Permit at no charge to agricultural producers growing crops within Palm Beach County after conducting an on-site inspection of the farm, nursery or grove and verifying certain criteria.  The issued Grower's Permit is valid for one year.

If you grow vegetables, herbs, or fruit and are interested in obtaining a Grower's Permit for your operation for use with cooperating Green Markets please contact, Anna Meszaros, UF/IFAS PBC Commercial Fruit and Vegetable Agent, 561-233-1718 or AMeszaros@pbcgov.org.

If you grow ornamental plants and are interested in obtaining a Grower's Permit, please contact Emily Marois, UF/IFAS PBC Urban Horticulture Extension Agent, 561-233-1759 or EMarois@pbcgov.org
