Fresh Citru Fruits
Fresh citrus fruits, tomatoes, and greens are popular buys along Krome Avenue in the Redland District.

Glenn Lindgren: One part of Miami that is mostly overlooked by most tourists is the vast farming area that stretches out along both sides of Krome Avenue from the Tamiami Trail to Homestead.

Raúl Musibay: This is where many small farmers grow small table crops like avocados, sweet corn, peppers, onions, root vegetables, pumpkins, cucumbers, and many types of citrus and other fruits.

Jorge Castillo: Much of this produce makes its way into the city. However, if you are heading out to the Everglades for an airboat ride, or possibly heading down to the Keys, a side tour along Krome Avenue can be a fun little trip.

Grandma's Garden

Raúl Musibay: There are several stands along the road where you can buy fruits and vegetables directly from the producers. The prices are cheap and the produce is fresh.

Jorge Castillo: These little huts are also great places to get fresh fruit batidos, or shakes. The perfect way to cool off on a hot Miami afternoon!

Raúl Musibay: Several places are also set up to serve small snacks, like croquetas and tamales, so you can also grab a quick lunch.

Grandma's Garden is a great place to pick up fresh produce.
Glenn Lindgren: The drive along Krome Avenue is pretty peaceful, except for the occasional farm truck or other farm equipment.

Raúl Musibay: It's a two-lane road so you'll need to drive accordingly. However it's really nice to get out in the countryside and smell the rich black earth in an area that has been carved out of the Everglades.

Jorge Castillo: The far southern end of Krome passes through a part of Dade County known as the Redland District. Here you'll find an interesting collection of sites worth a visit.

Glenn Lindgren: One of our favorite places technically isn't even on Krome Avenue, but it is located nearby about four miles east of Krome on Hainlin Mill Drive. If you are in Miami during strawberry season -- approximately late December/early January through mid May -- be sure to stop at Burr's Berry Farm for huge and beautiful red strawberries and fresh strawberry shakes and ice cream sundaes.

Raúl Musibay: I love their chocolate-dipped strawberries.

Jorge Castillo: If you are visiting the Monkey Jungle and coming from the Interstate, you'll drive right by Burr's.

Raúl Musibay: It's also not far from the Coral Castle if you are heading out that way.

Jorge picks up a couple of cartons of strawberries at Burr's.
Fresh Citru Fruits
Among the fruit and vegetable places you can find several selling outdoor home & garden items such as these decorative pots for planting.
Decorative pots and other homes & garden items are also sold along Krome Avenue at several small vendors.
