If you love farmers’ markets as much as we do, then you’ll be happy to know a new one is coming to the Town of Surfside thanks to local resident Javier Valmana who is a market aficionado. Fresh produce, artisan items, baked goods, art, coffee and more are coming to Surfside starting on Sunday, September 15, 2019, during the town’s first-ever Surfside Farmers’ Market. The community event, which is free and open to the public, will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. every Sunday in the parking lot on the corner of 95th Street and Collins Avenue.
The Surfside Farmers’ Market is the brainchild of Javier Valmana, a Surfside resident who is passionate about all things local. “Farmers’ markets not only provide a shopping experience like no other, with local organic produce, food and other interesting products,” he explains, adding that the Surfside Farmers’ Market also strives to contribute positively to the community, bringing further weekend excitement to the seaside town. It will be located in the heart of Surfside’s Downtown District and will be just a block away from the beach.
Valmana is the owner of Wavey Acai Bowls, a pop-up company that sells fresh acai bowls throughout Miami, and which will be present at the Surfside Farmers’ Market along with more than 20 other local vendors. The diverse list of vendors includes BeCultured (tempeh), Baguette Plus (baked goods), Coco watt (natural fruit slushies), Mind of Art (artistic furniture and house decor), Cauliflower Bites, Soapciety (cosmetic products), Garden Element (plants), with coffee and more.
