Time Out Market Miami Reopens in Miami Beach With Delivery Options
Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of the New Times free.
A year after its doors closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Time Out Market Miami has reopened to the public.
“We had to make sure there were enough stores in town to open again. It is very important that all vendors make money with us, “Didier Souillat, CEO of Time Out Market, told the New Times over the phone from England.” By Christmas we had been working on a pre-opening model and security measures and were ready to push the button. But due to Florida’s restrictions and an increase in coronavirus cases, we decided to wait. ”
The Time Out Market in Miami Beach opened in May 2019 and was the media brand’s first food hall in the United States. Locations in Chicago, Montreal, New York and Boston followed. Souillat says these will reopen on Memorial Day weekend. The original Time Out Market location in Lisbon will remain closed.
“Miami was the obvious first choice to reopen because of the weather and all the passengers,” explains Souillat. “National tourism will be so big and strong, I don’t think there will be anything like a slow summer season this year. I think we’ll see a season like we’ve never had in Miami before.”
The 17,500 square foot dining room has reopened with expanded seating. According to Souillat, in addition to state and local regulations and protocols, the venue has incorporated a people counting system to ensure safety and social distance.
“The system is in every single market entry and allows us to know when the venue is within ten percent of its capacity so we can close the doors,” he says. With Time Out, customers can initially achieve 50 percent of the normal indoor seating capacity of 320 people. In addition to the 160 seats, there are 120 seats outside – all of them socially distant.
Some restaurateurs have chosen not to return to the market, especially Antonio Cabrera’s Local Cuban kush burgers and offerings from chefs Giorgio Rapicavoli and Michael Beltran.
However, many of those on the original list of food stalls curated by Time Out’s editorial team are still there. The Peruvian-influenced 33 Kitchen, Azucar by Suzy Batlle, Antonio Bachours Pastry Shop, the vegan Love Life Cafe and Norman Van Aken’s Peace Pie have all returned to the market.

Phuc Yea’s spin-off, Pho Mo, is also back – with its original crew of seven. “We were disappointed that the market took so long to open, but we’re glad it managed to keep its great atmosphere and diversity,” said co-owner Aniece Meinhold. It’s great to see all the security measures and new local ones To show talent. ”
The offer of ten providers is rounded off by the La Santa Taqueria by chef Omar Montero. The new concept of the Kitchen 33 team S & D Burger; and Hapa Kitchen & Eatery, a Hawaii-inspired place designed by Neil Sulliva that offers a mix of island comfort food and fresh sack prep.
The main bar is open and serves creations from local favorites Broken Shaker, Sweet Liberty, and Generator Hostel Miami. Happy hour runs from 4pm to 6pm daily, with draft beer for $ 5, wine for $ 7, and a select list of cocktails for $ 8.
For the first time since it opened, the Miami Beach Food Hall is offering takeout and delivery options for multiple orders available through DoorDash, Caviar, and Uber Eats. In the market, contactless ordering is possible via a new Time Out Market app, which guests can use to place and track their orders.
Plexiglass shields on all counters and air circulation with advanced technology are just as much a part of the market’s COVID-19 measures as disinfection stations throughout the venue.
Every other weekend Time Out runs a Love Local campaign with a rotating series of virtual popups. The first takes place tomorrow, Saturday, March 20th and includes Bang Bang Bakehouse, the Dumpling Lady, Pudding Parlor, I Knead More and Oori Bakeshop for the next few weekends.
“We always took care of the city and local chefs. With what happened last year, we will encourage pop-ups through the independent concepts that are flourishing in the city, ”says Souillat. “We want to make sure people feel safe and have fun, and we look forward to slowly welcoming more vendors, as well as exhibitions and events.”
