You've been eating donuts out of the back of a trailer for long enough.

Wynwood's Salty Donut gourmet doughnut shop, which started as a weekend pop up, will finally open its permanent location in the new Wynwood Arcade on Saturday, its first anniversary.

The new shop will be open six days a week, staying open until 6 p.m. or until it sells out — which happens regularly. Lines for the pop up have been down the block on weekends, even when it moved into a temporary brick-and-mortar location several feet from its permanent home.

The shop has garnered even national recognition, after its chef co-owner Max Santiago won a baking competition on the Cooking Channel's "Sugar Showdown."

THE DAY WE'VE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!!!! On our 1 year anniversary on Saturday, December 3rd, we will finally be opening the doors to our permanent retail store inside the @wynwoodarcade, suite 112 facing NW 23rd Street. We're so excited for this moment ❤️ It's been an emotional rollercoaster trying to get this store open, but all we care about at this point is for our customers to be able to experience our donuts in our final resting place! Friday, 12/2 is a private invite only soft opening, which has 100% sold out! That being said, official grand opening to the public is this Saturday 12/3 at 8AM, and as a thank you to everyone for your support, the first 100 customers on Saturday & Sunday will receive a FREE Traditional Glazed donut! We really hope you join us this weekend, as there will be tons of celebration going on and lots of free surprise goodies! @chef_maxsantiago himself will even be there torching our NEW creme brûlée donuts to order! Get your cameras ready
