10th Week Lois Whitman-Hess Miami Life Editor The Three Tomatoes

I must have passed the Wynwood Marketplace a dozen times, but never really knew what it was all about. Now that I walked through the archway entrance, I want to go back all the time. Some of the vendors have gems you will never find anywhere else. The Wynwood Marketplace is a weekly event every Thursday through Sunday. Every retail stall has a variety of arts and crafts, food, drinks, music, games, clothing, fashion accessories, smoke shops, trinkets, and so much more. There is also space for special events.

The vendor that blew my mind the most was Drip Drop Boards, a skateboard company which offers one-of-a-kind boards that are handcrafted by local artist Daniel Rodriguez. Daniel wants skaters to express themselves by being able to own the most unique cruiser boards on the market. The art on the boards is so expressive that I am seriously thinking about buying one or two just to be able to look at them all the time. Each board is approximately $350 to $400. That’s without wheels which I don’t have any use for. Haha.

The Wynwood Market is located in the most art covered neighborhood in a Miami which is known for its colorful murals on converted warehouses. If you haven’t been to Wynwood you must go. The warehouses now house funky restaurants, art galleries, clothing boutiques, and late night bars. It’s entertainment all the way.
