Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Farmers Market


Located on El Prado Park, this open air farmers’ market features locally-grown fruits, produce, and, ironically, empanadas and popcorn. A plus for your pet, they also sell dog biscuits! You can also stop here for hand soaps, shea butter, and other lotions. The market is open year-around so you can have your local produce any day.

To The Moon Marketplace


With over 90 types of dark chocolate bars and famous hard-to-find candy, To The Moon Marketplace is nirvana for those with a sweet tooth. Open every day, this market carries sweets like marzipan bars, Sanders fudge, and candy from the year 1806 to now. Not to mention the rare snacks like British crisps and Bonomo Taffy. In a nutshell, it’s a wonderland for those who have long-searched for their childhood snack and candy favorites. Drop by to discover their classic toys for a gift, or peruse their collectible items from Betty Boop to Lucy. This is the place to go if you’re looking to gift something special.

Oakland Flea Market Mall


If you’re looking for a bargain, Oakland Flea Market Mall is your best bet. With over 200 booths of merchandise, you can comb through hundreds of thousands of times from cookwares to beauty supplies. The market also is home to a pawn shop, a nails spa (so you can get a mani & pedi after your shopping spree), as well as a tattoo parlor and smoke shop. They sell everything from electronics to lingerie and even offer a computer repair service. Talk about your one-stop-shop.

New India Bazaar

Market, Bazaar, Store

Another ethnic food favorite, New India Bazaar is located in Pembroke Pines and features tasty food and spices that are a must-try for the culturally curious. The market carries canned and ready-to-eat food, and has a bread section with plenty of naan. Try malasa gravy soups or papad noodles, there is also an endless array of spices to take home at affordable prices.

Marando Farms

Market, Shop

Shop at Marando Farms for fresh produce grown in a pesticide-free farm. Located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, they offer a farm-to-table experience, and shopping here means you’re helping the local food market (not to mention reducing energy consumption). The market sells raw cow’s milk, as well as yogurt and other dairy products. Their juice bar makes some deliciously healthy concoctions.

2 years.


It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
