Farmers markets in Broward, Miami-Dade and Palm Beach counties often include extra fun and entertainment like yoga, live music, family activities or petting zoos.
That means vendor fairs and farmers markets offer opportunities for delightful, and frugal, outdoor family fun, solo excursions or dates.
It’s always wise to verify information about a particular event via phone or social pages online to ensure the venue is open. Some markets are open year-round, and others are seasonal. Plus, weather can quickly change outdoor plans.
