Markets are an opportunity for local businesses to sell their products in person. These events were put on pause last year due to global COVID-19 shutdowns.
Norbert Quintero, the Coconut Grove Foodie and Farmers Market administrator, said the market lets vendors expose their products to people in Coconut Grove.
The market at 2750 McFarlane Rd. sells a wide variety of products. There are fresh fruits and vegetables, drinks, oils and spreads, and pastries. Non-edible products, such as clothing and crystals, are also available to purchase.
One vendor compares the market to freedom.
“Being at the market, for me it’s a synonym of freedom,” said Christine Emanuely, owner of Everyday Miami Meals. “You come here, you’re in a nice environment, it’s a warm day outside, you meet some amazing people. You share a lot of experiences, you have a lot of possibilities.”
The market is held every Sunday outside St. Stephens Church from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
