Following this site's instructions, I tried multiple ways of downloading and installing Miniforge, including Homebrew, CI pipeline, and by downloading the shell files from here.

Numpy building from source vs pip install on M1 MacBook Air. How does it work?

I’d strongly recommend using miniforge (basically anaconda), which has ARM builds ready to go (and includes numpy, pandas, etc). Compiling the project from scratch is a giant headache.

This kind of matches the performance I recorded when numpy is linked to vecLib for large matrix matrix multiplication in float32:
Note however there is currently no way to build and link numpy and scipy against vecLib to get correct results when calling LAPACK routines (to get Singular Value Decomposition for instance). It might be related to low level fortran ABI problems but I am not an expert so I don't know for sure.
It's possible to get a fully working numpy / scipy stack with OpenBLAS and gfortran by using the conda-forge distribution:
The performance is not as good as with vecLib (see the linked benchmark) but it's already very good (e.g. compared to a similarly priced Intel or AMD laptop with OpenBLAS and maybe even MKL).
I want to use Python commercially for free. Is Miniconda the best way to go (as opposed to Anaconda)?
reddit.com/r/Python | 2021-03-01
Would Miniconda be the best way to go? Or would Miniforge be a good alternative? I guess I'm concerned that I will accidentally install something through Miniconda that would then require me to pay for Anaconda, although this concern may be unfounded.

It turns out the solution is to use Miniforge, a version of Conda that is comparable to Miniconda, but supports various CPU architectures. Whatever that means. As I said, I'm no Python expert, but this tool essentially allows me to create virtual environments and install packages compiling them for the M1 chip! Any packages it doesn't support can then be installed from pip.
