- Miami Blue
DAVID CARVALHO David Carvalho pulled his bicycle up to Mima one day, a week or two after we first met, to drop off a present. It was a seafoam-blue glass sculpture, ragged semi-transparent pieces jutting out diagonally from a straight base, reminiscent of icebergs tips. This is how David is-- he finds existing materials, contorts them to reflect what's on his mind, and then shares the art almost exclusively with fellow artists and creatives who will appreciate it. Though primarily a sculptor, David also uses the mediums of photography, painting, and written word to manifest his particular vision. MIAMI BLUE Miami Blue is more of a persona than a brand: it's David's artist self, somewhere between bluesy and bright. His suncatchers are his most popular creations, bought as gifts for friends and, more often perhaps, as gifts for oneself to brighten up the window. Most Miami Blue suncatchers are unique abstracts, an arrangement of geometric glass in jewel tones, primary colors, or "Mima" colors (yellow, blue, and pink). Though all one-of-a-kind, David often comes back to the angel and butterfly shapes: one otherworldly, the other an extremely endangered local species, both mythically elusive. AT HIS HOME STUDIO David solders a ring, the last piece needed to hang a Miami Blue sun catcher, with the sound of Eric Clapton and wind chimes that he made in the background.
- Semillas Coop
DIANA PEREZ + SAM CHILLARON Diana and Sam met while farming separate plots of the same land on the North end of Miami. Both South Florida natives, they took different roads towards food cultivation. Diana studied Global Agriculture as an undergrad, which led her to an interest in local food systems and a master's degree in Sustainable Development. Diana got hands-on in 2017 thanks to Little River Cooperative's incubator program, and launched her own food growing operation, Magic City Gardens, in 2018. Sam got into natural farming around 2011. Motivated by a desire to preserve the nourishing traditions of our ancestors, Sam believes that a connection to the land is critical for our psychological well-being and spiritual survival. He worked as a farm hand at a variety of farms and designed gardens for schools and private homes, becoming an expert in food forests and founding Farm The Yard FL in 2014. In 2020, Diana and Sam joined forces, and their plots, and launched the National Young Farmers Coalition's South Florida Chapter alongside Aloha Redland in order to facilitate a local, sustainable resilient, and biodiverse farming culture. SEMILLAS COOP Semillas Coop is known for their beautiful organic produce, from peppers, onions, arugula and kale to rarer vegetables like kailaan. They offer their vegetables seasonally in two CSA options: Farmer's Pick (6-8 seasonal vegetables per week) or Micro Share (two greens and an herb). They also sell seedlings in grow bags, as seen below, and offer gardening services for those who want to cultivate their own food at home. AT THEIR NURSERY Diana and Sam select a few "plugs", or small plant seedlings, to create a grow bag for Mima Market. They start the seeds at their nursery until they're ready to be transferred into the earth at the farm.
- Annam Miami
ANITA SHARMA + MATHEW WEBB We heard about Annam Miami's tiffins, authentic South Indian meals delivered weekly, from our customers over the first few months of opening Mima Market. Anita Sharma, just one town over in El Portal, caught wind about us too, which is why when she came to visit with her twin daughters, we immediately connected about how we could support each other. Anita and Mathew are passionate about the food they make, not only because of how truly unique the flavors are on the Miami food scene, but also because of all it represents: maintaining family culinary traditions alive while forging new avenues for connecting with creatives in Miami. A documentarian and architect respectively, Anita and Mathew produce fantastic Annam Miami pop up dinners with cultural institutions such as O! Miami, creating curious zines that investigate the menu's theme. Friends insisted they start selling their amazing food. ANNAM MIAMI Annam Miami's meals fuse traditional Indian and locally-grown ingredients into lunches and dinners that are nutritious and lavishly spiced. They consist of kormas, sambhars, curries, chanas, paneer that often vary depending on what's in season. Annam Miami also jars their popular condiments like Garlic Avakaya, a relish that gives brings the flavors of garlic, coriander, and chiles to any dish, and Nuvulu Podi, a savory umami sesame powder that makes everything yummy. IN THEIR HOME KITCHEN Anita incorporates coconut milk, home-grown curry leaves, mustard seeds, and their signature Garlic Avakaya condiment into dinner-- zucchini pulusu-- while Matt tells Raul how Annam began. Anita and Mathew now participate in StartUp FIU's program, packaging their condiments in the commercial kitchen amongst other Miami food startups.
