Let CULTURE be the COMMANDER of your shopping escapade as you peruse the bustling streets of Little Haiti, your short-but-sweet immersion into the Afro-Caribbean culture, and Miami's honorary Haitian community! 

A quaint, up-and-coming neighborhood less than five miles north of Downtown Miami, adjacent to the world-renowned Miami Design District, trendy mixed-use Wynwood, Midtown, and Upper Eastside neighborhoods, Little Haiti is a world of its own, offering an authentic reflection of Miami's diversity and cultural heritage, despite being moments away from the thriving downtown.

And while your Little Haiti rendezvous will be far from Miami's typical, i.e., no beaches, upscale bars, or expensive restaurants, you'll find its SHOPPING experience to be a welcome CONTRAST, as it will provide a cross from two completely different retail paradises — the upscale and high-end and the world of unique finds and discounts!

Are you ready to extend your dollar and SPLURGE all at once?

Yes, that's Little Haiti for you!

Here are the top five shopping spots in Little Haiti.

1) Caribbean Marketplace 

5925 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33137

Embrace a world of culture, traditions, and great bargains at one of Miami's niche marketplaces, Little Haiti's Caribbean Marketplace, your gateway to authentic Afro-Caribbean commerce, art, food, culture, craft, and live music!

Often referred to by locals as "Mache Ayisyen," The Carribean Marketplace is a 9,000 sq. ft. marketplace designed by architect Charles Pawley as a modern-day replica of Port Au Prince's Iron Market, offering multiple kiosks selling local Haitian treats, from clothing and food to art and crafts!

Watch this cultural complex come alive on the weekends, with DJs spinning tunes and bands performing live as you peruse through local artwork, fashion, and artisanal goods!

Caribbean Marketplace is the heart of Little Haiti and your front-row seat to a UNIQUE shopping experience in Miami!

2) The Citadel Miami 

8300 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33138

Get ready for an unforgettable round of shopping, dining, entertainment, and scenic views at The Citadel Miami, a daily destination where creativity, craftsmanship, and community share a seat at the table!

Inspired by the world's great public gathering spaces, The Citadel is Little Haiti's ULTIMATE go-to spot for local artisanal foods, handcrafted cocktails, maker-driven retail, and culturally immersive experiences unlike anything Miami has ever seen. 

We're talking about a spread of shareable dishes and drinks from different restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, all while enjoying a gorgeous view overlooking Miami's skyline from the rooftop!

While the food-to-shopping ratio leans more towards the former, boutiques like Atelier Belladonna, Club Gallery, Rhythm & Release, and Sir Thrifty will make your stay worthwhile — with delicious cuisines the icing on top of the one-of-a-kind experience!

3) Upper Buena Vista 

184 NE 50th Terrace, Miami, FL 33137

Continuing the island vibe and charming Caribbean appeal is Buena Vista's intoxicating tropical shopping enclave, Upper Buena Vista, a top tourist spot and the ULTIMATE destination for shopping, dining, and entertainment, just a 2-minute drive from Little Haiti (or a 20-minute walk if you're trying to shed calories!).

Unique, irresistible, and MAGICAL, Upper Buena Vista is a calming shopping sanctuary far from your run-of-the-mill shopping center, often compared to a reimagined town square of a Caribbean resort village.

In fact, one of its distinct features is its small-sized shops, appropriately called "micro boutiques" and "petite boutiques," ranging from 250- 500 square feet, which look like "tiny houses" of fashion, loaded with eclectic local and global finds — most of which you won't find anywhere else. 

Kathe Cuervo, The House of Findings, Clara Ochoa, and more — these up-and-coming brands are bound to change your lives and wardrobes!

The Caribbean-inspired shopping enclave is also home to a plethora of food concepts, each promising a satisfying meal like no other!

Shopping, long strolls, and a romantic Caribbean vibe — it's a TEMPTING experience you wouldn't want to miss!

4) Miami Design District

140 NE 39th St., Miami, FL 33137

Discover the fancy and luxurious side of Miami shopping at the 18-block Miami Design District, a stylish community with unmatched access to world-class anything and EVERYTHING, only a 4-minute drive from Little Haiti!

Rooted in style, detail, and RETAIL, the Design District boasts over 170 high-end boutiques, design showrooms, art galleries, restaurants, and bars peppered throughout its perimeter — with new neighbors seemingly popping up every week!

Peruse through world-renowned brands like Dolce and Gabbana, Gucci, Celine, Dior, Prada, Burberry, Cartier, Fendi, Givenchy, Rolex, Saint Laurent, Tory Burch, Lanvin, Tod's, Tom Ford, Lanvin, COS, Christian Louboutin, Hermès, and Louis Vuitton — adding to your wardrobe, shoe, and bag collections never stop!

The Design District also boasts a long list of entertainment options, from dining to artsy and ICONIC eye candies and heart-pumping events, so after maxing out your credit cards, you won't have to leave so soon!

Boutique after boutique, a hot meal after another, and one jaw-dropping art display to the next, all within 2,699,095 square feet of space?

Safe to say, Miami Design District is a lifestyle MECCA that will ROCK your entire HEMISPHERE!

5) The Shops at Midtown 

3401 N Miami Ave, Miami, FL 33127

Have a long-standing affair with Miami's diverse URBAN shopping scene?

Really, I can't blame you — the big-name brands are just too hard to resist!

So, instead of fighting the urge to splurge, take the shopping party over to one of Magic City's retail GIANTS, The Shops at Midtown, and treat yourself to another mind-blowing spree, only a 5-minute drive from Little Haiti!

Offering 645,000 square feet of retail space, filled to the brim with big-box stores, trendy retail shops, and restaurants, the open-air shopping enclave of The Shops at Midtown is the EPITOME of a well-rounded shopping experience, where everything you WANT and NEED is under one MASSIVE roof! 

Target, Guess, HomeGoods, Marshalls, Carter's, Dick's Sporting Goods, Ross Dress for Less, West Elm, and more — there will be no fashion-forward outfit left unturned in this stylish shopping paradise!

The Shops at Midtown also offers 18 sit-down restaurants and quick serves, two (2) electronic and entertainment shops, and 12 service stores, so for running errands after your exhausting shopping spree, you won't have to go elsewhere!

Shopaholics, don't think twice — no one goes home empty-handed in this gigantic retail paradise!
