A guide to farmers’ markets in Miami

When a cool breeze begins to sweep across our sprawling county streets, squares, and parks, the allure of outdoor farmers markets grows faster than pumpkins. Here’s information on some of the best markets to find the freshest, locally grown produce, unique crafts made in Miami, and the season’s tastiest home-cooked meals. Most markets are open all year round, unless otherwise noted. It is always a good idea to check the websites of individual markets before going out, as most markets are outdoors and subject to the vagaries of the weather.
