Winter Garden

Winter Garden’s town area hosts a great farmers market each Saturday from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Vendors set up tents along the brick streets selling products such as fresh-baked bread, coffee, salsas and more. There is an entire section dedicated to fresh produce to get your fruits and vegetables with rows and rows of boxes. I recommend any tent vendor that is selling freshly baked bread! Next to the market area downtown are cute local shops and restaurants. You can walk from the farmers market down the block to the main street to see the charming businesses in person.

Lake Eola

Located in the heart of downtown Orlando, the Lake Eola farmers market is a go-to activity for Central Floridians. Open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., vendors sell clothing, accessories, plants and produce. The area is very dog-friendly and there is lots of room to walk around or sit on the grass while you eat. A popular tent at the farmer’s market is Thirsty Husky Coffee and the baristas are very kind! Also, there is an awesome family that creates custom floral bouquets on-site for purchase. The market is a family-friendly event that is a local staple in the downtown Orlando scene.

The Winter Park Farmers Market is a small but popular event in the Orlando area. On Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., visitors can see the various tents and food trucks available. The location of the farmers market is within walking distance of the Park Avenue shopping area with more dining options, and a train station that can take you to more Orlando locations via the Sunrail. This farmers market often has a wide range of plants and flowers for purchase. It takes place inside and around the Winter Park Historical Museum that is also a vintage train stop.

Not far from Lake Eola is Audubon Park, which hosts the Audubon Park Community Market on Mondays from 5 to 8 p.m. Vendors come together for the evening to sell produce, fish, pastries, and arts & crafts. The event is very family and pet-friendly, so you can enjoy live music with the family after shopping the tents. The market prides itself on naturally grown foods and ingredients. The Audubon Park area is very safe and has lots of public parks.

Orlando

East End Market is a really cool urban and artisanal building in Orlando. The market is indoors and very popular with locals because of their tasty restaurant options. Local businesses that host there are The Neighbors, Winter Park Biscuit Company, Dochi, Domu, Farm & Haus, Freehand Goods, Gideon’s Bakehouse and more. It’s the perfect brunch spot and I recommend Farm & Haus for their avocado toast or lemon pancakes. Lineage Coffee Roasting is an Orlando-based coffee company with great dairy-free options! Also, Gideon’s Bakehouse has become such a popular vendor at East End Market that they’ve extended their business to Disney Springs. Each vendor has varying hours but the best times to visit are between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. any day of the week.
