Sure, South Florida is chock-full of multicultural experiences. But there is perhaps no better place to take in so much of the world under one roof—from pupusas handcrafted by an abuela to customized tropical juice blends mixed before your eyes—than at Yellow Green Farmers Market in Hollywood.
There is more to this regional hot spot (located just southwest of the Sheridan Street exit off I-95) than picking over fresh tomatoes, avocados, and mangoes. The outdoor shopping utopia spans approximately 190,000 square feet and includes more than 325 homegrown operations and small businesses appealing to foodies, wellness buffs, shoppers on the hunt for deals, and all the good vibe–loving folks in between.
Where other market experiences may be meticulously polished and borderline hoity-toity, Yellow Green Farmers Market is far from that scene (in the best way possible). Its grounds are anchored by a towering tin-roof structure—with large fans for air circulation —and rows of individually crafted booths to saunter past on a leisurely weekend jaunt.
Don’t miss clothing and jewelry outposts like Crystal Treasures (for all your metaphysical needs), Red Hot Vintage (a curated selection of throwback tees, sweatshirts, and other vintage wearables), and Blush and Wood (selling handmade perfumes, soaps, and body oils). In between, peruse produce stands piled high with exotic options, herbal remedy suppliers, and seemingly endless possibilities at food vendors offering delicacies from Ethiopia, Thailand, Germany, Indonesia, and everywhere in between.
When it’s time to give your feet a rest, head to the outdoor Happytizer Bar, which boasts a menu of ice-cold brews, a pool table, and live musicians churning out reggae beats to soothe your shopped-out soul.
