MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Miami residents will soon see a myriad of white tents take over the streets of Downtown. No, it’s not another Occupy movement; it’s the new Downtown Farmers’ Market.

Located at the The Stephen P. Clark Government Center Courtyard, the Downtown Farmers’ Market will be hosting a ribbon cutting ceremony Friday at 1 p.m.

Miami-Dade County Mayor, Carlos Gimenez and Lillian Rivera, administrator of the Miami-Dade County Health Department will all be in attendance for the ceremony.

the Downtown Farmers’ Market is a joint effort between the Miami-Dade County Health Department, Make Healthy Happen Miami and the Consortium For A Healthier Miami-Dade that aims to promote healthier lifestyle choices

Entrance to the farmers market is free of charge and provides local, sustainable and organic foods that include fresh fruit and vegetables, baked goods and artisan products like honey, kettle corn, smoothies and even stone crabs.
