On Saturday, October 30th, the City of Coral Gables held its first Harvest Market in North Gables. Several hundred people visited the market, which featured over a dozen artisan and food vendors.

The Harvest Market was the first of the season. It will also be held on Saturdays (November 6, November 13, November 20, December 4, December 11 and December 18) from 9:00AM to 6:00PM on Minorca Avenue between Ponce de Leon Boulevard and Galiano Street.

The event, a concept pitched by Mayor Vince Lago and developed and executed by the Community Recreation Department, was organized in a short period of time.

The Mayor and the Community Recreation Department have been looking to expand event offerings in the North Gables for some time.

Vendors fresh fruits and vegetables, pastries, honey, handbags, hair bows, just to name a few.

It also featured a photo booth promoting the City’s Break the Box campaign, face painter and an arts table for children.

The event will take place again this coming weekend from 9:00AM to 2:00PM and feature several additional vendors.

  1. I enjoy these outdoor markets. However, not all produce they offer is local. Look at the stickers (which by law they need to leave on the fruit or vegetable) to see that some are sourced outside the U.S. and at a higher price than the local supermarkets.

  2. I heard this was proposed by a young gables resident. Nice job to whoever it was. (Not sure why my previous post was cut off)
