Coral Gables Farmer’s Market Every Weekend through March

fruits_and_vegetables2The Coral Gables Farmer’s Market runs now through March 27, 2010. Located at 405 Biltmore Way, the market includes chilis, citrus, corn, eggplant, bananas, onions, potatoes, honey, herbs, strawberries and a variety of plants for sale. There’s also some baked goods available. The market runs every Saturday morning from 8 am to 1 pm.

It’s a tradition that dates back to the 1920’s, when it was a thriving avocado and guava grove owned and operated by City founder George Merrick. Every winter, those involved in agriculture would return to the town center in a three-month event amidst the classic Coral Gables architecture.

In addition to the goods at the market, there are free classes offered for market shoppers. The schedule is as follows: 8 am- Tai Chi in the park. 9 am- gardening workshop. 10 am- a master che from one of the local Gables restaurants will create a dish for shoppers to sample…restaurants like Caffe Abbracci and Morton’s Steak House.¬†11 am- children’s activities offered. Again, these classes / workshops are free. Enjoy the wonderful South Florida weather and spend Saturday morning at the Farmer’s Market in the Gables.
