Have been around for nearly a decade. The Coral Gables Well ’Canes market launched in 2010 through a partnership with Student Government and Human Resources. Since then, the market expanded to the Miller School campus, and the number of vendors doubled.


Are named after the UM wellness program - Well ’Canes. Market vendors sell more than farmed goods, so the name was changed to the Well ’Canes Marketplace to emphasize the University’s efforts to promote overall well-being for its faculty, staff, and students.


Attract more than 1,000 visitors per week. That’s potentially 52,000 UM faculty, staff, and student purchases per year to support local small businesses - a win for all!
