Last Saturday was the first day of the new South Miami Farmers Market. Last Friday, I wrote a post about the market's mission of sourcing local produce, cheese, meat, eggs, and value-added products (jams, salsas, and other prepared foods) from local farms, community gardens, home gardeners, and from around Florida. Read the post here.
Unfortunately, the purveyor who was supposed to bring the grass-fed beef canceled at the last minute due to an illness in his family, but one of the market coordinators, Mario Yanez, expects him to make the trip from Ocala in the coming weeks.
The market will run Saturdays year-round, from 9 am to 2 pm at South Miami City Hall (6130 Sunset Drive).
