As many of you probably know, some 30 to 40 people showed up yesterday at the site of the Roots in the City Farmers Market to protest a city of Miami code violation citation that the market received the previous week.
The technicalities of the permits and what permits the organizers thought they needed versus what [...]

The South Miami Farmers’ Market launched this weekend across from the South Miami City Hall. The market is organized by Earth Learning and Green South Miami.

On a Monday morning last July, a group of 100, maybe 150, people gathered in a room at Miami-Dade College’s Wolfson Campus for the first Greater Everglades Community Food Summit. “This gathering is a historic occasion,” conference organizer Mario Yañez said in his opening. “It marks the beginning of a true local food movement.”

The Roots in the City market is also [...]

I brought a goose egg home with me today. A find from Hani Khouri’s stand at the Pinecrest Farmers Market.
I had heard about the eggs recently from chef Michael Schwartz, but I wasn’t expecting to find them at the market. Next to the tiny chicken egg, the goose egg looks majestic. I first looked [...]
I’m a little late with this month’s events but aside from Taste of the Grove, which I’m not a huge fan of, not much interesting seemed to be going on early in the month.
