Wynwood may be Miami’s art mecca, but it’s also a food desert for residents and artists who call the transitional neighborhood home. To balance the need for fresh and affordable food, the Bakehouse Art Complex is debuting the Wynwood Green & Art Market in its courtyard Sunday, March 1 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The new market will feature locally grown produce and goods sourced from South Florida businesses. Craft foods and artisanal products will be accompanied by a curated selection of art made by local artists. As the BAC’s market develops, it will become a space for community activities such as artist booths, performances, interactive crafts for kids and free yoga classes.
“It’s our hope that this market will serve as a focal point for all of Miami, bringing people from all corners of our diverse community,” said BAC Executive Director Marte Siebenhar. “This market will provide a place of gathering and exchange for artists, art lovers, locavores, organic farmers and local producers, food lovers, and the surrounding community.”
Join Siebenhar Sunday at 11 a.m. for a ribbon cutting ceremony in the courtyard with city representatives and other community leaders who worked to bring this to life over the past eight months.
Moving forward, the market will be held on Sundays from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m., with dates currently scheduled on March 15, 22 and 29; April 12 and 26; May 10 and 24; and June 14 and 28. Entrance is free of charge, and vendors interested in a booth can apply at bacfl.org/marketvendors.
The BAC facility, where more than 65 local artists have studios, is open to the public for visits during the market and its regular business hours (noon – 5 p.m.).
