Want to check out South Florida’s largest farmers market? Yellow Green is the top spot for locals looking for fresh produce and artisanal goods. This 100,000 square foot warehouse is home to over 300 vendors, and it’s open all year round.

One of the best parts about this market is its open-air atmosphere. It’s the perfect place to enjoy Florida’s stunning weather while also shopping for locally sourced products. Be sure to check out the Amish butter and organic pet treats for your furry friends—they’re some of my favorite products.

Do you have an appreciation for organic produce, Miami-based artisans, and top-notch quality goods? Then the Aventura Market is the place for you! This small-scale farmers market features over 35 vendors, and you can’t beat its convenient Aventura Mall location.

Demolition of the Dania Beach Hurricane Roller Coaster

They say, whatever goes up has to come down. The Dania Beach Florida Hurricane Roller Coaster in southern Broward County has been a landmark for residents and tourists since year 2000. Just this past week the demolition of the monstrous wooden structure has begun and it created a buzz through the south Florida community. The ride itself closed five years ago and hasn’t been operated since. Some are happy to see it go but some are sad and believe it or not, I rode when it reopened in 2000, lots of memories from my childhood on a wooden roller coaster!

Dania Pointe of Dania beach located just north of Hollywood Florida, will be one of the largest shopping centers in Broward County Florida. Dania Pointe will attract many visitors all the way from Southern Miami-Dade County up to The Northern parts of Palm Beach County because of Dania Beaches central location in South Florida. Over half a million cars pass by the location northbound on I95 per day! This development is sure to be a success and a great new addition to the city and South Florida.
