This week’s theme is, “HOOD FOOD”, and MIAbites is honored to co-host with Slow Food Miami and Urban Greenworks. The focus will be on local food sources, healthy eating and farming in Miami and socially conscious food non-profits.
Located on an empty corner of North Miami Ave and 21st St, the creative real estate developer with an eye towards social issues, Bazbaz Development, has chosen instead of leaving empty a lot slated for future development, to create a community minded open air Art Installation and Marketplace. Currently open 1-7 pm thru May 27th, based on current success, MKT is considering expanding into evenings with live music and other activities.
A rotating list of over 30 vendors each week include 100% cotton apparel from Summertime by Sylvie, hand painted rings and wearable art by Rose’s Rosewoods, Creative cards by designer Valeria Krasavina, Geometric art by Zirconwolf Art, Sayblee organic hair products, Handmade and Vintage jewelry and more, all within a backdrop of Brazilian artist, Angelica Dass' HUMANAE, a statement on diversity and color.
This coming Saturday’s program is all about local food. Local food vendors include Smart Bites, Dosha Ayurvedic Foods, Jucy Lu, Lady Fingrs handmade popsicles, Dragonfly Lean Cuisine, Coconut Stock, Green Frog Coffee, Fresh artisan bread from Lesage Bakery (including their amazing plantain bread), fresh organic produce and fruit from Chelsea Farms, and a pop up Juice Bar using fresh ingredients like tamarind and moringa from Mustard Seed project urban farms.
