STORE Self Storage & Wine Storage will be the host of this summer’s weekly “Green Market” in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. Held outdoors at city hall for most of the year, the farmer’s market will be combined with STORE Self Storage & Wine Storage’s existing community event, which has been held every Saturday for the past two summers.
Kicking off May 12, the Green Market will include 55 vendors with booths on the first floor of the five-story indoor facility at 11010 N. Military Trail. Scheduled for Sundays through out the summer months, the market is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and will include food, music, artwork, jewelry and other merchandise. Admission is free.
Brothers Jon and Joel Channing, owners of STORE Self Storage & Wine Storage, told the source they were drawing about 400 people to their weekly summer event. Merrill Newman, who has sold soy candles at the STORE’s event for the past two summers, said he expects the new partnership to bring in more people.
According to the source, the agreement between the city and self-storage facility states the city receives the rental income from the vendors, which is $20 to $45 per vendor each week. In addition, the Channings will spend $10,000 to market this summer’s Green Market. Jon Channing said the influx of people will enable the operator to market the facility to potential renters.
