Strolling Along the Coconut Grove Farmer's Market

Last weekend we decided to try something new. Believe it or not, we had never stepped foot into a farmer's market in Miami! Miami does not have an abundance of fresh food markets like other places in the U.S. We have been to so-called "farmers markets" in Miami Beach, but they do not offer the variety of produce that we expect to find.

We read about an organic farmer's market in Coconut Grove on yelp.com and decided to give it a shot. It is located at 3300 Grand Ave. and is in business every Saturday. They have a very large variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts, salads, oils, butters, herbs, etc. This place is heaven for foodies. We found things there that we couldn't find at Publix or Milam's, for example, celery root. It is also paradise for photographers like Mr. P. Check out his photos below.

After buying some herbs and veggies, we took a stroll around the city taking pictures of the peacocks public art exhibition. Click here for more information about the Coconut Grove Peacock Tour.www.coconutgrovepeacocktour.com/

  1. Hi guys, thanks for posting this. I spent the summer living in NYC and spent almost every Saturday at the Greenmarket in Union Square .... heaven!! I wish there were more of these in Miami. I went to Whole Foods today and got some pretty heirloom tomatoes, I think I'm going to make a pizza tomorrow. Check thefitcook.net :)

  2. Love it!! I see you got the celery root and dragonfruit! Can't wait to see what you make :-)

    The peacock art exhibit is so cool, too. When I lived in Texas we did one around Dallas with steers - lol.

    Best,
    Veronica

  3. Veronica- The celery root was great. I was disappointed with the dragon fruit. They told us it was pink inside but it wasn't. I don't know if it wasn't ripe enough. I have another i am going try tommorow, hopefully it is better.
