MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Food Network & Cooking Channel South Beach Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (SOBEWFF®) today announced the launch of the SOBEWFF® Artisan Food Market on Lincoln Road in partnership with the Lincoln Road Business Improvement District (LRBID). The new outdoor market, taking place monthly, aims to support small local culinary businesses affected by the ongoing pandemic all while drawing visitors and locals alike to the iconic Miami Beach street.
