Starting next week, patrons can turn to the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts for more than concerts, plays and dance performances.

The Arsht Center announced Monday that it will kick off a new weekly farmers market on Dec. 1, thanks to a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The event will be held every Monday from 4-8 p.m. in the Parker and Vann Thomson Plaza for the Arts at 1300 Biscayne Blvd.

Shoppers will be able to find fruit, vegetables, meats, flavored honey, cheeses, dips and breads from local vendors. The market will also showcase food writers, chefs, music and cooking demonstrations, starting with cookbook author Ellen Kanner.

The new Café at Books & Books in the Arsht Center’s Carnival Tower, which was announced in September, will also open to the public that day.

Next week’s event will cap off a busy stretch for culinary news at the performing arts center, which opened its new restaurant, Brava, on Friday.
