Summer Can't Stop Miami's Farmers' Markets: Where To Go and What To Buy This Season

As temperatures creep into the high 80s, it’s no secret that summer is around the corner. But don’t worry – Miami's notorious heat doesn’t have to stand in between you, your favorite fruits and vegetables and Miami’s farmers' markets.

While some farmers' markets are nearing their annual hiatus, these local markets see no end in sight, planning to stay open through rain, shine, humidity and any heat wave that comes our way. But there's a catch – you'll probably notice subtle changes in produce options as summertime approaches. Surprisingly summer brings us more than just scorching heat and water overdoses – everything from avocados to watermelons are just about to hit their peak, giving farmers' markets tasty new additions.

Make sure to keep your eye out and grab these favorites at your local year-round markets while they’re at their freshest, tastiest and cheapest all year.
