The Miami Design District has long been known as a must-visit shopping destination for fashionistas near and far, but more and more, the neighborhood is becoming a local hangout, too. On Wednesday, March 8th, head to the Miami Design District for its first-ever The Market #atMDD: a weekly farmer’s market with freshly-prepared local goods and live music, and your newest reason to stop by the Design District for a shopping spree on your way home from work.
Taking place every Wednesday from 3 to 8 p.m., Miami shoppers can stroll through 40+ booths of fresh local produce, artisanal breads, nuts, jams, teas, oils, vinegars and even some prepared foods: think crepes, acai bowls, handcrafted gelato, arepas, Argentinian steak, Korean poke bowls and Haitian cuisine all made right there in front of you. When 5 p.m. hits, keep noshing and shopping – while a rotating roster of hot performers, like The French Horn Collective and DJ Nippy, will perform live to keep you entertained.
Adding to its allure, this new weekly market will also signal the official debut of another exciting addition #atMDD: Flotsam & Jetsam, one of the largest 3-D printed objects in the world and one specifically designed to embody the quintessential Miami vibe. Designed by this year’s Panerai Design Miami/Visionary Award winner, SHoP Architects. This installation will join the neighborhood’s already-impressive collection of eye-popping art including Jungle Plaza’s own Jungle Mural by 2x4, and the nearby Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome, Konstantin Gricic’s Netscape, Zaha Hadid’s site-specific Elastika installation in the Moore Building and more.
The Market #atMDD debuts Wednesday, March 8th, from 3 to 8 p.m., at the Miami Design District’s Jungle Plaza. To join the fun, enter the farmer’s market through one of two entrances: the West Entrance (3801 NE 1st Avenue) or the North Entrance (140 NE 39th Street).
