There’s a new market and gathering space heading to Coconut Grove called MKTplace at Goombay Plaza, a project led by the University of Miami School of Architecture with support from city and county commissioners and the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
The market will be comprised of modified shipping containers, utilizing moveable incubator structures to house prepared food, entrepreneurs, and vendors. The physical concept can be likened to Wynwood’s Charcoal Garden Bar + Grill, whose structure is also made of modified shipping containers.
The market will be located on the corner of Grand Avenue and Douglas Road and was designed to attract entrepreneurs, creatives, and civic leaders.
