One of the things that South Florida residents appreciate most is the year-round growing season. But the best time of year is autumn, when fall harvests deliver a bounty of fresh vegetables and fruit. From all around Florida, local growers deliver locally grown produce to food lovers in West Palm Beach. Here are the top three sources for the most healthy and flavorful produce that West Palm Beach has to offer.
Rorabeck’s Plants & Produce

The prices are incredibly affordable, the food is 100% locally grown, and the staff are always ready with a smile. Open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.
