Celebrate Farm City Week with farmers market at the Stephen P. Clark Center on November 15

MIAMI (November 03, 2016)

The community is invited to the 10th Annual Farm City Week Farmers Market on Tuesday, November 15, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Stephen P. Clark Center. Farm City Week is dedicated to highlighting the importance of agriculture to our economy and celebrating the relationship 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. The tropical climate provides for 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 and Consumer Services, Dade County Farm Bureau and the Miami-Dade County Cooperative Extension Office.
