villageOpened in August 2011 by husband and wife team Alison Duran and Jorge Espinosa to cultivate a "mom and pop" market where shop owners forge lasting relationships with their customers, The Village Stand has become a temple of gastronomy.

The culinary market is now celebrating two years of  bringing to Miami Shore's downtown retail district edible delights unavailable at most local markets: from vast assortments of local and imported cheeses, pastas, fine chocolates, granola, jams, seasonings, cured meats, fine wines and more artisanal products, which they share with their customers at  monthly open house events on the third Friday of each month.

The Village Stand is located at 216 NE 98th Street in Miami Shores and is open from Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m.- 7:30 p.m.  For more information call 305.458.1229 or visit .
