Miami New Times' Description

Including stands selling everything from mattresses to cotton underwear, Bargain Town continues to be one of the best sources of cheap produce in Dade. Located across from a village of flea-market-like shops, the produce market occupies a large warehouse. It's full of dozens of types of fresh fruits and vegetables. While most farmers' markets and grocery stores sell avocados for $2 to $3 apiece, this market prices them around $1. Amid bountiful stacks of tomatillos, jackfruit, and okra are sacks of dried cinnamon, Jamaica flowers, and peppers. The majority of stands sell fruits and vegetables from out of state. During weekends, Roque de Castro, a 26-year-old University of Miami student, tends to his family's stand at the busy venue. "Miami has become all about the service industry," he says. "Now farmers have to become businessmen in addition to farmers."At the Redland Market Village, that business involves selling fresh jalapeños, Dora the Explorer towels, and car alarms. Nearly everyone converses in Spanish. Bachata music blasts, and food trucks sell elote. It's like a quick getaway to Central America without the need for a passport.
