As a local, even finding the best outdoor markets for fruits, knick-knacks, or fashion staples can be a challenge. Many of us also enjoy shopping affordably and although some people are willing to blow a pretty penny on an item, doesn’t mean you have too if you can find that same item for a better price. Miami is home to a wide-range of eclectic activities and sights. However, some gems are not so shiny as others. Certain spots may not be as known as other ones and some free time deep digging must be done to search for these underrated locations. Below are a few but worthy markets that are a MUST SEE when living in or traveling to Miami. Each market is guaranteed to keep you entertained and intrigued at each tent and stand.
- Lincoln Road Outdoor Antique and Collectible Market

For decades, the Miami Beach attraction has brought together some of the best antique collectors in the land, local and international artists, youthful thirfters and much more.

- Normandy Village Marketplace
This hidden gem takes place every Saturday from 9am-5pm. The Normandy Village Marketplace may not be the most known, but it holds a large variety of stands for the small space that it takes up.

Not much to be said about this market except that it is one of the more underrated markets in the Miami area and it is not one to miss.
