Food has the democratic power to bring people together. Nowhere in West Palm Beach is this more apparent than at Grandview Public Market, where on any given day, different cross sections of our community connect over a mutual appreciation of good food from authentic local vendors. You’ll find young families getting ice cream at Crema, professionals grabbing a cold brew at Rabbit Coffee, yogis refueling with a smoothie from Celis Produce, twenty- to thirtysomethings congregating around the bar, and old friends catching up over Detroit-style pizza from The Corner. It’s a place to spend a workday—laptop in tow—or meet a large group in the evening to enjoy tacos from Zipitios and live music and DJs. “There’s something for everyone’s tastes, but it’s not just a food hall,” explains Grandview developer and owner Chris Vila. “It’s a social hall. I felt like we as a community needed something like this.” If the frenzied crowds that have flocked to the market since its opening are any indication, then yes, we did.
