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.
3) Coconut Grove Farmers Market
The mothership of organic and farmers’ markets, this open-air market remains the queen bee for honey, kombucha and local and seasonal produce from Glaser Farms. There’s also prepared Indian fare, nut butters, vegan ice cream and plenty of baked goods. Saturdays from 10 am to 7 pm.
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. Note: Always check Facebook by searching for ‘The Miami Flea’ for event updates, especially during summer or bad weather.
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.
