Here's the idea: In Fall 2017, a vacant lot in the heart of downtown Opa-locka will be transformed and activated as the new THRIVE Market. With a central courtyard surrounded by retrofitted shipping containers housing a restaurant, fresh market and cafe sourcing locally grown fresh produce, and a commercial kitchen to incubate and train culinary entrepreneurs, THRIVE Market will create a much-needed public space in Opa-locka while focusing on issues of food, community, and entrepreneurship. To help launch the market, there will be a series of creative community pop-up events during OLCDC's annual Art of Transformation, which celebrates the revitalization of Opa-locka through the arts.
Please also "LIKE" our Safe Routes to Parks idea in collaboration with Miami Dade College North Campus by clicking here. The idea: A community recreational path for walking and biking linking Opa-locka, Amelia Earhart Park, and Miami Dade College North Campus, which highlights assets of Opa-locka.
