|A source for local produce, now in Wynwood|
Wynwood Farmers' Market will debut today, Saturday, at The LAB Miami
, the entrepreneurial community campus for technological and social innovation. The campus has partnered with member Erin Healy, the founder of Youth L.E.A.D
, an organization centered on creating healthy, environmentally sustainable, and equitable schools and communities throughout Miami-Dade County.
The market is funded by the Knight Foundation and will be held outside of LAB Miami's building, in the alleyway off of NW 26th street.
"There was a lot of interest from LAB, our partner and site of the market, and the Knight Foundation, to do the market. A lot of people seemed excited about the idea, so we decided to jump in and provide this much-needed service," Healy says.
There will be vendors selling empanadas, organic raw foods, local goat cheese, locally sourced fruits and vegetables, and herbs and spices by Spice Galore. There will be food trucks present too -- including Purple People Eatery. Youth L.E.A.D apprentices, who will be employed from the surrounding community, will run a juice and smoothie stand.More »
