The Caribbean Marketplace in Little Haiti is just about reopen, and it looks like it popped right out of a cruise port. According to Miami.com, "the 9,500-square-foot space includes a refreshment and concession area, gift shops, arts and crafts, retail vendors and space available for private events." It's positioned to bring new jobs and opportunities to locals, and if those locals include artisans in the clothing and accessories field, a warm welcome should be received. [Miami.com]
