The first Bean and Pepper Jamboree was held in 1946 at the Pompano State Farmers Market on Atlantic Boulevard. The Market was a major distribution hub for the country’s winter vegetables. Growers brought their fruit and vegetables there for shippers to purchase. The jamboree celebrated the end-of-season harvest and the entire community gathered at this much anticipated annual event for food, bingo and social time.
