LUCKY YOU if you live in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami, High Pines (and Ponce corridor), or Pinecrest, because they are Farmers’ Market communities! A community is only as good as its ‘sense of community’, and there is something wonderfully refreshing and ‘grass roots’ about bumping into friends and neighbors while shopping for fresh produce!
I shop at least one Farmers’ Market each week, and to add to the adventure, I either walk or cycle (sometimes I don’t recognize myself). I have to admit my favorite is the Pinecrest Gardens Farmers’ Market. I live in South Miami but I am a Pinecrest Farmers’ Market girl.
Aside from the stellar fruits and vegetables, there are a few things I don’t resist: Fatima’s Soaps and Candles are amazing, the guacamole guy has bar none the best EVER, my peeps LOVE the maple bacon and sweet Italian sausage, and the lady in the middle-aisle bread station has THE best Asiago bread.
Whether you live in one of these great communities or are thinking about buying real estate in Coral Gables, Coconut Grove, South Miami/High Pines, or Pinecrest, be sure to support the local economy, the local farmer, and HAVE A GREAT TIME!
