Plethora of Green Markets

Farmer's Markets are popping up all over. We have our Thursday Grove Green Market at the Playhouse lot from 2 to 8 pm each week and the Saturday Green Market on Grand Avenue, across from CVS from 11 am to 6 pm.

Other new markets not to far away include: 

Fairchild Gardens Farmer's Market: Which is every Saturday except when they have special events at the garden from 9 am to 2 pm. This is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road. It is located in the parking area near the entrance to the Garden and has many stands of local and organic produce, local honey, pastries, prepared foods, Zak the Baker breads, dried pastas, crafts, and much, much more.  

South Miami Farmer's Market: Moving to a new location on Sunset Drive and 57th Court across the street from Sunset Mall is the South Miami market which features local and organic produce, honeys, pastries, prepared foods, Zak the Baker breads, dried pastas and various specialty vendors.  This market is Saturdays.

Then there is the Fresh Start Farmers Market on Biscayne Blvd. 
This urban farmers market, located at 50 Biscayne Boulevard in downtown Miami, will provide the following fresh, local produce: grapefruits, oranges, tangerines, lemons and limes, tomatoes, bell peppers, egg plants, zucchini, yellow squash and onions, papayas, mangoes and carambola. I'm looking for Napole (prickly pear), wonder if they have that. I'm going to check it out next week. 

Also available is sour dough breads and pastries, local honey, orchids and herb plants. It’s more than just a market, you can bring your pets, listen to live music, register to vote, learn about affordable healthcare and exchange used light bulbs and showerheads for more efficient ones.

Fresh Start Farmers Market is winner of The Miami Foundation Public Space Challenge and funded by the Health Foundation of South Florida, is also about repurposing public spaces into community gathering areas.

This event repeats weekly on Saturdays for 4 times: Feb. 8, Feb. 15, Feb. 22, and March 1 from 10 am to 3 pm.
