Pop Up Grocer is coming to Miami for a month beginning Friday, January 28 and will be located in Wynwood at 171 NW 23rd Street. The traveling grocer store is bringing a selection of the newest and most innovative, better-for-you products, including those from Miami-owned, women-owned and BIPOC-owned brands. Discover items like milk made from bananas, chips made from cactus, plant-based deodorant, matcha pancakes, probiotic mouthwash, fizzy functional beverages and more.
Founded by Emily Schildt, Pop Up Grocer's robust selection features 100% interesting, 100% natural, majority plant-based, and sugar-conscious choices. Dedicated to connecting with consumers in a new and unique way, Pop Up Grocer brings all the buzziest brands on Instagram under one roof, and to your favorite cities. The Miami pop-up was designed by Chaz Capobianco, owner of Miami-based design studio Capoco, and Elizabeth Jaime, a Miami-based prop stylist and florist.
Pop Up Grocer creates an environment that still feels like a grocery store – product, shelves and fridges – but intends to stimulate your senses and take you out of your normal, routine shopping mentality. Unlike a traditional grocery store, Pop Up Grocer is built for discovery. Just over 400 products—as opposed to 40,000—line its shelves, across categories: food, beverage, home, pet, and body care. And to the Miami location, Pop Up Grocer will bring 3 newly-launched categories: Mood Boosters, Saucy + Spicy, Human + Pet Care. The goal is to increase visibility for emerging brands and their founders.
Miami-based Fernanda Quintero aka nacoooks, will debut as the store’s bakery partner, offering a daily selection of cookies and exclusive menu of baked goods that blend food, culture and design. Liger’s Cookies, famed as the best cookies in Miami, will also sell fresh cookies on the weekends only. The Miami store will also showcase Florida-based brands, like The SisterYard, Big Easy, Vacation, and brands that are otherwise exclusively available online, such as Superfrau, Kiki Milk, Bonito; and just-launched brands ZORA, Supr, De Soi.
“We’re thrilled to kick off the new year in Miami, a city with such unique energy, and one that has experienced immense growth in recent years. And with all that is happening in the dining scene, we are looking forward to meeting the appetites of those searching for something equally exciting in grocery," said Emily Schildt, Pop Up Grocer Founder & CEO.
Pop Up Grocer will be open from 10am to 7pm daily from Friday, Jan 28 through Sunday, Feb 27. 5% of in-store sales will be given to one emerging, consumer packaged goods brand, for whom the donation has immediate and significant impact.
