Hi there! You all know I love everything that’s fresh, new, and fun. One of my favorite things to do once it’s warm outside (read: year round) is find things to do that get me and my Hubby outside and in the sunshine. Visiting a local farmer’s market is a very social thing. You meet people who are also visiting, you meet the farmers, the merchants, and the artisans that are so passionate about what they do. Last week we visited the Wynwood Farmer’s Market and had such a great day! Right now, I feel like this market is a hidden gem but it won’t stay like that for long.
Being the food-obsessed person that I am, I must start with telling you how amazing the food is. You won’t find any fancy-schmancy stuff here – prepare to get messy! I had a Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwich with fresh Florida mango salsa, house BBQ sauce, topped with cotija cheese from Grumpy Greg’s BBQ. If I could, I would visit Wynwood every day for this sandwich alone. I’m a sucker for fresh mangoes. I basically become a mango hoarder during mango season – eating all the mangoes I can and freezing the ones I won’t be able to eat.
My Hubby had a Loaded Pork Taco from Milty’s Gourmet. He did not share and I barely had enough time to take a photo… Enough said.
What’s really fun and different about the Wynwood Farmer’s Market are the different themes each week. It was Art Day when we visited and were able to see local artists and their work. We met Sergio who was busy creating his next work of art at the market! I also loved these pieces from Dani Betan Arte. She creates each of her works with a paintbrush, melted crayons, and a lot of love.
We picked up some fresh bread from Ciabella Miami. They prove that healthy can also be delicious with their vegan breads that include zero additives, preservatives or GMOs. What’s super cool about this bread, they explained, is that you can freeze it for up to six months which is really handy since we really shouldn’t be sharing an entire loaf of bread between the both of us… Just place the frozen bread into the oven for 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit if you want it soft, or 400 degrees Fahrenheit if you want a crunchy crust.
We met with the friendly farmers of Miami Fruit. They explained that they harvest fresh tropical fruit from local farms all throughout South Florida. Their CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) Program it really convenient. You can join their Fruit Club and have a variety box of the freshest fruit around delivered to your door on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis. Their payment options are also really easy. Payments can be made through PayPal and Venmo. Imagine all these color fruits delivered to your door…
I love skincare and these plant based soaps from Apples Apothecary are gentle for you and smell divine.
They even come in fun shapes and sizes for the perfect party favor! This cute cupcake one was perfect for me!
One day is just not enough to try all there is at the Wynwood Farmer’s Market. From paella and crepes to fresh lemonade and teas. I could tell you more but you’ll just have to go visit for yourself!
The Wynwood Farmer’s Market is open every Saturday from 11:00 AM until 6:00 PM
