Farmers Market to celebrate Farm City Week at the Stephen P. Clark Government Center


(MIAMI, November 9, 2012) – Miami-Dade County Agricultural Manager Charles LaPradd is celebrating Farm City Week by hosting a Farmers Market on Thursday, November 15, 2012, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at the Stephen P. Clark Center, located at 111 NW 1st Street in Downtown, Miami. 

Farm City Week is dedicated to enhancing links between farm families and urban residents.

Miami-Dade County’s Agricultural industry ranks among the top three industries for the County and second in the State of Florida and is one of the most diverse in the country. Our tropical climate provides us with a year-round growing season, as well as the ability to produce an extremely wide range of crops.

A great way to experience locally grown products is to visit a fresh farmers’ market. The Farm City Week Farmers Market will have local growers on hand with fruits, vegetables, honey and plants as well as educational displays from the Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services, Dade County Farm Bureau and the Miami-Dade County Cooperative Extension Office.

For more information please call the Agricultural Manager’s Office at 305-971-5091.
