Little River Box Company Announces Launch of The Market at The

Wynwood Yard

MIAMI, FL NOVEMBER 16, 2017 – A new addition to The Wynwood Yard is here: The Market at the Yard. This local market will house local vendors and makers, contributing to the growth of the local creative community in Miami. Miami’s own Little River Box Company designed and built this new extension in less than two weeks, start to finish. “We don’t make a habit of these tight deadlines, but for our friends at The Yard, we push outside of our comfort zone,” said Gayle Zalduondo, co-founder. “It made perfect sense when we heard that there was a local market coming to The Yard that we, as local craftsman, would be a part of it.” This is Little River Box Company’s second venture with The Wynwood Yard. This local market has different design parameters than their first project, the upscale Garden Bar and Grill called Charcoal, the first full service restaurant to be built completely from modified shipping containers. “Our visual vocabulary is always about using industrial materials. For this project though, we switched up the overall feel,” said Zalduondo. Instead of their standard classically refined style using newer containers, this time they employed heavily used containers and for a more down-home feel. Although their style repertoire is expanding, their considered and deliberate approach is never compromised. What feels like a natural extension of the local maker’s market is the Garden Box, Little River Box Company’s first foray into the merchandising and retail experience. This third collaborative project with The Yard is set to open at the end of November. It is a prototype and preview of what is to come, mixing the outsides – the building, with the insides – the contextualized overall user experience. A grand opening ceremony for The Market will take place at The Wynwood Yard, located at 56 NW 29th St. Miami, FL 33126 on Thursday, November 16, 2017 at 7 pm.
