WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Saturday is the last day for the West Palm Beach GreenMarket this season, but local residents who attend will receive a special green gift.

More than 90 vendors will be on hand as the market closes for the 2018-2019 season.

However, if you attend on Saturday, the city is giving away free trees in honor of the success of the season and Earth Day.

West Palm Beach residents can get a free tree on site by presenting their identification, courtesy of the Mayor’s Office of Sustainability.

Each address is allowed to select up to two trees. The trees are either native or "Florida-friendly" and in three-gallon pots, standing no more than 5 feet tall.

Also, the city says representatives from Palm Beach County will also be giving away vouchers for free trees for anyone who lives outside of West Palm Beach.

Trees are available on a first come, first-served basis while supplies last.

From October to April, the GreenMarket is held at the West Palm Beach Waterfront located at 101 N. Clematis St. from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The city says the GreenMarket is attended by nearly 3,000 people each week, providing locally-grown fresh fruits, vegetables, plants and other agricultural products.
