Peruvian market in Miami?

Does anyone know if there are any Peruvian markets in Miami? I would love to buy purple potatoes and also some peruvian corn (with the huge kernals) and have not been able to find them anywhere in Miami so far.

  1. There's a lot of places that sell Peruvian goods - but I'm not sure about the purple corn? I haven't been really paying attention very well to what the products are but for sure I've seen the corn in several places.

    But from the top of my head:
    Price Choice by downtown has some Peruvian goods
    Super Wal-Mart up on 163rd St has some Peruvian goods (much to my surprise)

    1. Purple potatoes can be found at Milam's Market or the Fresh Market. Ive yet to see peruvian corn or hominy at a market but if you locate some please let me know.
