Orlando Farmers Market
Located at Lake Eola Park, Orlando Farmers Market has been drawing hundreds of visitors every Sunday since 1987. Prepare to be amazed – this is much more than just your average farmers market. Have fun exploring fresh, seasonal produce, an array of indoor and outdoor plants, baked goods, artwork, and a plethora of handmade craft items like jewelry, pottery, and soaps. You will have plenty of time to stroll around the outdoor market with your favorite four-legged friend during their convenient hours from 10 AM - 4 PM. Bonus! Their wine and beer garden opens at noon featuring live music. What a perfect way to wrap up the weekend!
East End Market
East End Market is rooted in the belief that Orlando’s vibrant food culture is the foundation for the community’s quality of life. Everywhere you look there are independently-owned businesses with fresh sushi, daily baked bread, roasted coffee, Italian-prepared meals, local Kombucha, artisan cheeses and much more. They truly are the ideal destination for food enthusiasts by bringing Central Florida’s local farmers and chefs together. So whether you enjoy relaxing in the courtyard, cruising through the market garden, or listening to live local musicians, this is the place to be on the first and third Saturday of each month.
Winter Park Farmers Market
Every Saturday, make your way to the Old Train Depot off New England Avenue to experience the number one produce and plant market in Central Florida. Winter Park Farmers Market has been restored into a historical landmark and is open from 7 AM - 1 PM. If you want to beat the crowd, arrive by 10 AM and eat breakfast as you meander from stand to stand. You and the pup can peruse numerous booths of fresh vegetables, baked goods, handmade arts and crafts, as well as beautiful plants and flowers. Get your Sunday started right eating healthy goodies with help from Winter Park Farmers Market.
Audubon Park Community Market
From freshly picked produce to fully prepared meals, Audubon Park Community Market is Central Florida’s go-to for locally grown food in Orlando. Every Monday from 5 PM - 9 PM growers, ranchers, chefs, crafters, and musicians have been gathering around since 2009 in the heart of the Audubon Park Garden District. The market places a strong emphasis on fresh and sustainable practices, priding itself on supporting and improving the local community, one delicious bite at a time. Whether you are looking for fresh-farmed Florida foods, plants for your personal garden, or simply a tasty place to grab dinner, look no further than the Audubon Park Community Market.
Freshfields Farm’s originated as a small meat market in 1973 with the goal of providing locals with high-quality, fresh meat and produce. It’s their goal to eliminate distribution trucks and warehouses and ultimately bring the farm straight to you. In other words, they like to keep it simple by offering straight-from-the-source produce, meat, seafood, and cheeses. We love that the market is nestled inside a charming, little barn, yet modeled just like a grocery store you're familiar with. Stop by to purchase their personal brand of organic, locally grown foods whenever you’d like – their doors are open seven days a week!
Whether you are living at the elegant Alta Grande in Orlando or somewhere in the surrounding area, here at Wood Partners, we encourage you to explore new things, eat fresh foods, and support local businesses!
