5 local farmers' and makers' markets

1) Firehouse MRKT

This 5000-square-foot market-eatery, set to open September 2017, is modeled after the famed San Miguel Market. Located in the erstwhile Fire Station No. 2, it features five main sections interactive foodie fun: Fish & Meat restaurants, produce stands, baked goods and coffees, a salumeria and a despensa (tapas bar).

2) Flavorish Market

This bakery, cafe and gourmet shop carries goods that are just as enticing to consume as they are on display. Many are locally made, from Zac the Baker breads to cookbooks by local authors such as Cindy Hutson (Ortanique on the Mile, Zest Miami). Wander in stomach-growling wonder.

4) The Miami Flea

Sunday afternoon is for drifting through this kid-friendly, pet-happy village of more than 125 community makers, bakers, face painters, thrifters – whatever you’re browsing for, you’ll likely find it, accompanied by a soundtrack of local musicians.

5) Upper Eastside Farmers Market

This compact but dense market at Legion Park is a favorite for the residents of the Upper East Side. Buy everything from Florida heirloom tomatoes to free-range chicken eggs to grass-fed beef. Snack on hummus and mozzarella as you go; just don’t drip on the tables of jewelry, crafts and clothing.
