We joined our friends at Urban Oasis Project for the Village Farmers Market in Miami, Florida this past weekend.
Located at the National Historic Landmark of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, this market echos the Village’s agricultural past— built between 1914 and 1916, this section of the estate is only open to the public during the market. Their dedicated team of guides point out the design and function of the space as you learn the stories behind the people who lived and worked at Vizcaya 100 years ago.

Market visitors discover the artistry of local vendors and explore the historic farm and village each week. From clothing to seasonal harvests, we shopped artisanal goods, fresh-made delicacies, and locally farmed produce from a wide selection of South Florida shops. There's also a complimentary yoga class for the community. This practice, lead by instructor Gabriella Bhatia, takes place on the historic superintendent’s lawn of Vizcaya Village. Breathtaking!

For our booth at Vizcaya, we wanted to create an environment that celebrated both historic decorative forms and fresh contemporary living. This included the Adamo1987 Textile Revival Collection, repurposed vintage pocket squares and scarves revived into pillow covers and framed art by local artisans using premium natural materials.
We also debuted our feature collaboration display with Lisa Angelini Studio. A leader in the botanical art space, Lisa's bright use of color and attention to detail have brought her original illustrations to life in our homeware and stationary collection.

About The Vizcaya Village:
The Vizcaya Village was the working part of the estate and we are revitalizing it to tell new stories about our community’s history and to offer innovative new programs. Sheltered under large banyan trees, the Vizcaya Village features 11 architecturally significant buildings on 12 acres. Built in 1916 to make Vizcaya self-sufficient, the Village included staff quarters, a garage and workshops, barns, and greenhouses and fields that supplied fresh flowers, fruits and vegetables. The Village restoration will realize the full potential of Vizcaya as a cultural hub through year-round innovative programming and green space for residents and visitors. Learn more on their website.

About Lisa Angelini Studio:
Lisa Angelini-Adams, founder and principal of Lisa Angelini Studio, is an American painter creating multi-faceted, botanical art for residential and commercial concepts. She is recognized for her distinctive application onto ceramic, porcelain, and canvas. Her Mediterranean ancestry is at the core of Lisa’s design approach. Through an exploration of color, intuitive juxtaposition and organic realism, she brings warmth and light to her pieces. On the early 1990’s wave of hand painted tile muralists, Lisa is currently designing for a new age of nomadic lifestyles—high-end, lightweight, versatile art to collect and transport for frequent movers versus site-specific design. Lisa received her academic training in illustration, fine art and design from The Butera School of Art, The Montserrat College of Art, The School of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts and the The Boston Academy of Realist Art.
