The Bedner family has been embracing farm-to-table long before it became a culinary trend. Farmers for five generations, they have been growing locally since the 1960s. Bedner’s Boynton Beach farm, with seasonal “u-pick” opportunities and a market, has amassed a fan following among families and foodies. Now, with the opening of Bedner’s Farm Fresh Market in the former Ragtops location on Dixie Highway, West Palm Beachers can get their produce fix daily.
In addition to a selection of the 45 items grown on their farm, the Bedners benefit from relationships with farmers all along the east coast to ensure they receive the freshest, highest quality produce. But the market is much more than a fruit and vegetable stand.
“Our goal was to be your everyday green market,” says general manager Lane Brooker. “Along with amazing homegrown produce, we have USDA Prime Black Angus steaks cut by old-world butchers; fresh seafood including many local varieties of fish and stone crabs; hot soup, salads, or sandwiches for lunch; a great bottle of wine at a really good price; international, fresh-cut cheese; and healthy, cleansing juices.”
Here, we highlight a few more unique products available at Bedner’s that will make you feel good from the inside out.
