Night markets are common fare in other parts of the United States.
But for whatever reason, they haven’t caught on in South Florida until fairly recently. (And are pretty commercial as well.)
Now, North Miami has its own grassroots night market that will be sure to make the hippie in your family jump for organic joy.
Launched just last week (Nov. 3), the NoMi Night Market had around a dozen vendors show up and a steady flow of interested passersby.
Located near the intersection of NE 123rd St and NE 13th Ave, the night market sits on a space used during the day as the Urban Habitat Farm Store.
Organized by North Miami resident and political activist Lauren Hill, the event is meant to be a weekly happening.
But not yet.
“Our beautiful opening was just a taste of what a night market can be in North Miami,” NoMi Nigh Market posted on its Facebook page on Nov. 8. “Unfortunately, we opened pre-maturely and have some hiccups in opening on a weekly basis as we had intended. We will not be able to open this Friday as intended. We will keep you posted and be back in the market business very soon.”
So while you wait for another chance to visit the night market, you can take a look at what it was like on its opening night:

Christmas is one of the best times of the year to snuggle up and watch a good movie. Here’s a list of the 10 best Christmas movies of the past 30 years (or so).
- ‘A Christmas Story’ (1983)
This family classic will bring joy and laughter to everyone in your house, regardless of age. It is a movie about a young boy by the name of “Ralphie” who “convinces his parents, his teacher and santa that a Red Ryder BB gun really is the perfect gift for the 1940’s.”
Also a classic, National Lampoon’s family is anything from ordinary. This comedy is full of jokes, gags and tons of humor. The main character “Clark” is set on an adventure preparing his house for his arrival of his large family.
- ‘How the Grinch Stole Christmas’ (2000)
Just because this movie was made by Disney doesn’t mean those over the age of 8 can’t enjoy it! The Grinch (played by Jim Carrey) is sure to make anyone chuckle, it is about a green “Grinch” who is very determined to steal christmas from a small village. Although his fate gets changed along the way.
- ‘Santa Clause 3’ (2006)
Although this is the 3rd installment of the series, this is the one that truly gave everyone the warm feeling of Christmas. When Jack Frost attempts to steal Christmas from Santa Claus (played by Tim Allen) he must fight through time in order to save Christmas for kids all over the world.
- Elf (2003)
When an unorthodox Elf (played by Will Ferrell) is sent to New York to find out who he really is, he’s sent on an adventure through modern technology. This is a must-watch, the humor and jokes in this movie are promised to make the whole family laugh.
- ‘Home Alone’ (1990)
When 8 year old Kevin (played by Macaulay Culkin) is accidentally left at home while his parents go on vacation, he protects his house while two men attempt to break in. This is a very funny and great movie to watch with the family and has a nice “kid-like” point of view on things.
- ‘The Polar Express’ (2004)
When a young boy is awakened by the sounds of a train late at night, he is greeted by a very exciting adventure to the North Pole. This is a thrilling family movie and will be guaranteed to make you feel like a part of the ride!
- ‘Gremlins’ (1984)
This thriller is about the darker side of christmas. When a man gets an interesting pet called a “Mogwai” he’s given very strict rules. When these rules are broken he is sent on a very hair raising adventure. This movie would be better without the kids but it is still a very good classic and is a must see.
- ‘A Nightmare Before Christmas’ (1993)
When Jack Skellington (The king of Halloweentown) gets bored with his repeating lifestyle, he demands a change. When he accidentally stumbles into Christmas Town, he is greeted with an entirely new lifestyle. When he gets back he attempts to bring the idea to Halloweentown. Its is a great family movie and will make everyone feel good.
- ‘Scrooged’ (1988)
When Frank Cross (played by Bill Murray) resents the idea of Christmas, he is greeted by the ghosts of Christmas past to get him in the “Christmas Spirit.” It will make everyone in your family get in the Christmas mood and will be sure to put a smile on everyone’s face.
