Culinary garage sale Saturday in Miami

Staff writer

Les Dame d’Escoffier Miami holds its fifth annual Giant Gourmet Garage Sale 8 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday at the Galleria of the Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Ave., Coral Gables.

The Dames are a group of South Florida women who work in food and hospitality. Their work funds scholarships for young women and supports organic school vegetable gardens. They also work to produce nutrition and cooking educational programs for young people and members of the farm labor force.

Every year, the Dames donate their gently used cooking flatware, cookbooks, art, linens, napkins, pots and pans, candles, ceramics, bakeware, stemware, small appliances and much more. This year, they’ve also received donations from Miami hotels, including linens.

Expect prices to be 50 to 75 per cent less than retail.

The Dames Marketplace will also feature locally grown fruit and vegetables, potted herbs, prepared foods and baked goods. Admission to the event is free.
