Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market opens in WPB
The third location continues the charm for this company with this small, but loaded, market. The Bedner family concentrates on providing locally produced fare, and complements that with choice, upscale products you may not find easily in your ‘hood.
The West Palm Beach Bedner’s opened this weekend to appreciative crowds–socially distanced and mask-wearing at all times–with some terrific price specials. The other two markets are in Boca and Boynton Beach.
The Boynton Beach market also soffers U-Pick options most of the year. Right now, strawberries and green peppers are on schedule. Check before you arrive to make sure the produce has ripened the day you want to visit–Facebook is a quick way to do that.
West Palm Beach hours: Monday to Saturday, 9 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Sunday, 9 a.m. – 6 p.m.
