How is it mid March already?How did we already blow through 3 amazing Dinners In Paradise with another directly in the wings (and sold out!) this Saturday? Time flies when you're busier than swarming bees.
We began Farmer's Market season in an exploratory stage and eventually planted our roots in two very different styles of markets that have been entirely too much fun:
Every Saturday 8AM - 2PM: Coral Gables Farmers Market
Is it always beautiful in downtown Coral Gables? Yes, yes it is. This market has such a wonderful variety of vendors and it really is a family affair with lots of happy curious kids and fuzzy puppies.
Every Wednesday 11AM - 6PM: Sunset Harbour Shops, 1900 Bay Road, Miami Beach
We're smack dab in the breezeway the sweeps by Panther Coffee and Icebox Cafe. The community has been overjoyed to have access to local organic produce and the timing is really perfect -- you can just pop through for some good lunch salad fixings or pass by right after work to pick up some healthy flavorful dinner ingredients.
We've had some really unique produce to share - like the ultra spicy black spanish radish, the enigmatic egg fruit, and delicate purple scallions. Kale, kale, and more kale has joined the usual suspects on the table like salanova lettuce (perfect heads!) and a plethora of microgreens. Come on out!
Have a look at photos from Dinner In Paradise. If you haven't made it to one yet, we only have a handful more in this final season with Gabriele. Our remaining dinners feature some heavy hitters in the Miami culinary scene, so expect a satisfied mind and belly: http://paradisefarms.net/dinner-in-paradise/
