Hundreds came out on a beautiful Saturday morning to support local vendors and enjoy a day outdoors in the City Beautiful.

Vendors were selling fruits, plants, juices, honey, food and desserts. Many were thrilled with the incredible turnout and were excited for what the season will bring.

Virginia Vich, owner and founder of Pudding Parlor, posted on Instagram that she had sold out of product, thanks to the high turnout at the event. Pudding Parlor’s incredible puddings became a highlight of the Coral Gables Harvest Market.

“This past Saturday was a beautiful day to kick off the opening of the Coral Gables Farmer’s Market! As a local business owner and resident of the City Beautiful, I was so excited to see such an excellent turnout coming out to shop and support the local vendors participating in the market. We are so grateful for the City’s staff who are so supportive of our small businesses,” said Vich.

The Coral Gables Farmers Market will run every Saturday from 8:00AM to 2:00PM through March 26th, in front of City Hall.

  1. Are you really sure the produce you are buying is not from Milams or Publix? And just marked up? Or from a wholesaler??? Where is the vetting??Mmmm- It is a nice walk. The baked goods look yummy!

  2. Nice but would like to see organic produce, which I could not find. What happened to the Exotic Fruit Council stand? It wasn’t there this time.

  3. I attended and it was a beautiful day and a very nice event. Looking forward to this Saturday’s market.

  4. Yes, a good Spreader Event, esp for the highly contagious omicron variant of the Wuhan Virus.
    State of Florida Health Dept weekly report says 93% of Miami-Dade County residents have been vaccinated, but there were over 100k NEW cases 2 weeks ago and 80k NEW cases last week (ending on Thursday).

  5. I am not sure how you can report the farmer’s market was a huge success when there was only one local farmer there.
