It is the City of Plantation’s goal to create a special market atmosphere. We are always open to fresh ideas and vendors selling new local items. Please note that we are not a craft or “flea market”-type event, and carefully screen products to ensure they are an appropriate fit with the Market’s vision.
Plantation Volunteer Park
Every Saturday from 8:00 AM – 2:00 PM
Plantation hosts a Farmers Market featuring fresh, certified organic produce, locally produced honey, homemade hummus, plants and orchids, fresh cut flowers, breads and Danishes, olive oils, cheeses, dips, spreads and more. It is located at Volunteer Park, from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM, and will run year round.
Whenever possible, the produce is locally grown or at a minimum, is grown in Broward County or the state of Florida. The word “organic” refers to the way farmers grow and process their agricultural products, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, dairy products and meat. Organic farming practices are designed to encourage soil and water conservation and reduce pollution. Farmers who grow organic produce don’t use conventional methods to fertilize or control weeds, but rather organic farmers may conduct sophisticated crop rotations and spread mulch or manure to keep weeds at bay. When produce or other products are “certified organic,” that means they have passed rigorous standards established in 2002 by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that include annual inspections, detailed records of farming practices and ecologically friendly methods.
The Plantation Farmers Market is the most recent project implemented by the City’s Climate Change Task Force, in an effort to encourage and educate our citizens – especially our youth – on the importance of being environmentally responsible and of healthy eating habits. On your way home from shopping, Saturday games, or lunch, please stop by and see what's new. We're sure you'll find something to enjoy.
The City of Plantation established its Farmers Market for the purpose of providing the Plantation community access to fresh and wholesome goods. But in addition to that, our hope is that Plantation’s Farmers Market will become a weekly event that families will look forward to attending; that it will help them feel connected to the community and the friends and neighbors they may see there. We hope to see you there!
