11 South Florida Food Halls, Markets, and Yards, Mapped
Where the indecisive thrive
Treats Food Hall
Aventura Mall’s new and improved upscale food court — Treats Food Hall — doles out fast-casual favorites like Yalla Motek, Poke 305, and Yip. Whatever the cuisine du jour may be, mall visitors return to Treats for quality ingredients hastily delivered for maximum time at the shops.
Little River’s souped-up version of the food hall concept, The Citadel, delivers more than tasty eats. A rooftop bar, makers’ market, and creative roster of workshops round out the community hangout, along with representation from local hot spots like USBS, Ash Pizza, and Vice City Bean.
The Doral Yard
The team behind the now-shuttered Wynwood Yard has taken their talents to Doral with Doral Yard, an indoor food hall with plenty of vendors, a cocktail bar, and even a full-service restaurant on-site. Whether it is Venezuelan rotisserie chicken or customizable Hawaiian poke bowls, there’s plenty on-hand to dine on.
Mia Market Miami
In the heart of the fashionable Design District lies a tidy gem with a curated selection of high-end vendors. For some of the city’s best sushi (that you won’t have to take out a second mortgage on the house to enjoy), head to Sushi Yasu Tanaka. Chef Yanin Cohen (aka The Spice Detective) has an outpost of his Israeli-inspired restaurant Jaffa for those craving Mediterranean fare. There’s solid Italian (Trattoria Dal Plin) for all carb needs, cocktails, coffee, and sweet treats.
The brainchild of real estate developer Shoma Group, this Doral food hall opened close a year ago with a wide array of vendors ranging from Venezuelan Doggy’s Arepa Bar, fusion Japanese Pubelly Sushi, and pizza favorite Ash Parlor. Shoma Bazaar also houses a cocktail bar with an extensive cocktail program offering nightly happy hours and weekly live music programming. Ample parking (free for the first two hours) appeals to this modern, fun spot.
Only open on Saturday and Sunday, this outdoor food venue in the heart of Wynwood makes for a fun weekend excursion. Be sure to bring a hearty appetite — with over 60 unique and ever-rotating selections of vendors, eating becomes a sporting event.
Dubbed as an events venue, this trendy space has a large courtyard with comfy seating surrounded by dining options like Mr, Mandolin, Chikn, and Buya — all housed in colorful shipping containers and a bustling bar. Three venues can be found in the only indoor space: Ms. Crispy Rice, Papi Churros, and OG Sushi. There’s a stage and a full lineup of concerts, making this a one-stop shop for a night out.

Casa Tua Cucina
The friendly sister outpost of the esteemed Casa Tua Restaurant in Miami Beach, a visit at Casa Tua Cucina feels like a behind-the-scenes tour of the neighborhood trattoria.
