Your tour begins at The West Palm Beach Greenmarket which has been recognized as the top market in the state of Florida by Cooking Light Magazine, and Dr. Oz gives it a “thumbs-up” each time he visits.

As we embark on our chef-led tour of the West Palm Beach Greenmarket, we’ll enjoy a Cuban Coffee (Cafe Cubano) and a treat.

Following your tour of the West Palm Beach Greenmarket,  you’ll head to Judith Olney’s beautiful historic home for a hands-on cooking class.

Note:  Our Market Tour & Cooking Class is held at The West Palm Beach Greenmarket AND at Judith’s home.  Guests are required to provide their own transportation, and we will provide you with directions. Upon purchasing tickets, you will receive instructions on where to meet.
