Mother’s Day Ideas from the Delray GreenMarket


Mom always said, “The early bird gets the worm.” Guess this can apply when shopping for a Mother’s Day gift, too. This weekend is the Market’s second to last for the Spring 2014 season (May 10 is the last one until the Fall), so it’s high time to get thinking of what to get mom! Here are a few ideas to impress your mom on Sunday, May 11, all while benefitting local businesses.

  1. Fresh Flowers: You can never go wrong with these! Stop by Amazing Creations or The Orchid Doctor for the most beautiful, fresh arrangements around.
  1. Body Care: Pamper mom with a gift from Serenity Flow Soaps. They carry a varied selection of scents from lavender to sweet vanilla, and products from soaps to whipped shea butter. And stop by Tespen’s Body Care for a variety of products as well.
  1. A Furry Friend: Each weekend Tri-County Humane Society and Dezzy’s Second Chance Rescue bring adoptable dogs looking for “fur-ever” homes. Make sure you clear this one with mom first J
  1. A Home-Cooked Meal: At the Market you can find ingredients to whip up breakfast in bed or a gourmet dinner for mom. The possibilities are endless. There are fresh pastas from Pasta Amore, seafood from Independent Seafood and Finn-A-Atic Fish Co., spices from around the globe from The Spice Booth, Anita’s Guacamole and salsa if you are feeling some Mexican inspired dish and not to mention all the fresh fruits and veggies for a complete delicious and nutritious meal for mom. And for the carnivore, Farris Farm has grass-fed beef and poultry and Arrowhead Beef Co. is another option too!
  1. Dessert: Mom have a sweet tooth? The variety of desserts is endless. From brownies, to French pastries, muffins, breads and more. Life is short, eat dessert first!

15 Reasons Why Mom Deserves Her Own Holiday

By Paula Detwiller

Here at the GreenMarket, we appreciate all the little things Moms do. In honor of Mother’s Day and the 15th anniversary of the Delray GreenMarket, we put together this list of 15 reasons why mothers deserve their own special holiday.

  1. She brought you into this world—through her own body. 
  2. For at least two years, she changed your dirty diapers. 
  3. Her first instinct was always to stick up for you. 
  4. She made you eat your vegetables. 
  5. Her lullabies (and later her lectures) could put you to sleep. 
  6. “When you’re a mother, you’ll understand” turned out to be true. 
  7. Dad’s hugs are nice, but not as nice as Mom’s. 
  8. Her chauffeur services were first-rate. 
  9. She cooked your favorite meal when you came home from college. 
  10.  She did your laundry when you came home from college. 
  11.  She put you through college—or provided moral support while you did it yourself. 
  12. Two words: homemade pie. 
  13.  Mom does the worrying for everyone in the family! 
  14.  She taught you to play fair and watch your mouth. 
  15.  There’s no better babysitter.

So when you stop by the GreenMarket this Saturday, why not pick up a Mother’s Day gift—for your mom, your auntie, your grandma, or yourself? From orchids to scented soaps to fashionable sunhats to fresh-baked desserts, there’s something for every mom at the Delray GreenMarket.  And don’t forget—only two more markets left (May 7 and May 14) before we close for the season!
