Here at Culture Crusaders, we’re all about supporting local which is why when we heard about Vecinos Market we knew we had to share it!

Vecinos Market is a digital marketplace that serves as a home for many Miami-based businesses. They take the time to curate high-quality, unique products and experiences to not only help support local vendors, but also to connect them to each other and to the community. The market was created by a group of residents of the Miami Shores area so it’s safe to say Vecinos Market is a for residents, by residents. Making supporting local easier than ever, you can browse a selection of local business right from the comfort of your home. 

In an effort to build and nurture Miami’s thriving local business community, Vecinos hosts events, like their recent Backyard BBQ, where local vendors have a chance to shine. This gives consumers the opportunity to interact with both the products and the makers. 

From beauty and wellness products to food and drink and even home and living, which is sometimes hard to find, you can purchase almost anything via this platform. So many of the products sold make for great holiday, birthday, and just because gifts. And with an emphasis on sustainability, most of the products offered are organic and eco-friendly.

Head on over to Vecinos Market to check it all out for yourself or you can sign up here to discover all things local.
