Enjoying the fresh product of Miami has never been easier. Check out our day-by-day guide to farmers’ markets in Miami. The rich and fertile soil plus the excellent growing conditions in Florida culminate in some of the best produce around. The healthy foods from local farms might be fully organic or not but without any doubt, the produce you will find in a Florida farmers market will be superior to what you’ll get in a normal grocery store. When given the opportunity, you should always look to support local agriculture and eat local and seasonal fruits and vegetables. Here the Culture Trip presents seven of the many wonderful farmers’ markets that Miami has, listed in order of the days of the week (Monday-Sunday).
This is a year-round open air market offering locally grown organic fruits and vegetables, artisan baked goods, French pastries, cupcakes, orchids, drinks, and smoothies, local honey, kettle corn, and aromatherapy products.

When: Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays. 8am to 5pm, open year-round

Not everything grows here in Florida, but a lot does. And if it’s grown here, then you are guaranteed to find it at the Grove Green Market. Every Thursday from 2 to 8 p.m., you can peruse the fresh veggies pulled directly from the ground or buy locally made products such as breads, jams, and treats. The items vary each week, creating a unique treasure trove of goodies each time, such as piña colada preserves from Freakin Flamingo Jams, goat cheese from Hani’s Mediterranean Organics, and maybe even colorful beans from Seasons Farm Fresh.
When: Thursdays, 2pm to 8pm
Where: In the parking lot of the Coconut Grove Playhouse. 3500 Maimi Highway; Miami, FL, USA
