Where to get produce in Palm Beach County during COVID-19 closures 

by Alexis Paige

COVID-19 has wrecked weekend plans from here to, well, we have no idea. But, arguably the worst weekend outing that has fallen victim to the rona (at least in my local loving opinion) is green markets. Fresh fruits and veggies from local farmers that can last you through the week and spark new ideas and dishes in the kitchen is my favorite way to celebrate spring.

But, with new obstacles comes new adventures! We bet you probably haven’t heard of a couple of these produce purveyors, but you’ve probably eaten their food. Now you can enjoy their produce at a discounted rate and avoid the grocery store.

Making the healthy choice easier for consumers since 2014, Celis has not only been providing tasty treats such as smoothies, juices, and sandwiches, but actually got their start in produce! And COVID has reignited the flame of their roots. In fact, Celis is making it even easier by delivering it straight to you.
