Farmers markets are primarily the place to get locally-sourced ingredients. And as we become more conscious about what we eat, more and more farmers markets are popping up in Miami.

Local and sustainable food is now not just something we see in many restaurants today, but also something widely seen in our own kitchens at home. If you’re interested in finding local, organic goods in your area, or while you’re here visiting Miami, here are a few of the top farmers markets in town.
