Slow Food Miami "Snail of Approval" points South Floridians and visitors to food that is good, clean and fair by identifying and honoring producers, purveyors and artisans who contribute to food and beverage quality, authenticity and sustainability. In its inaugural year (2010), nominations were solicited among Miami-Dade county farmers. Now nominations come from the general public and all nominations are vetted by the Slow Food Miami Snail of Approval Committee.

Find the “Snail of Approval” list on the Slow Food Miami website, as well as on the upcoming mobile app.
