The Best Farmers Markets in Orlando


Farmer’s Markets bring the best locally-sourced produce (and more!) to your table. But with so many out there, it can be hard to figure out which ones are the ones you should never miss. So we took it upon ourselves to get out there, do the research and deliver the freshest blog to your table(t) (see what we did there?). So before we get past the sell-by date, here are the Best Farmers Markets In Orlando

We began at Orlando’s Farmer’s Market over at Lake Eola Park (the corner of E. Central Blvd and N. Eola Drive). Open on Sundays from 10am-4pm, expect free parking and one of the bigger Farmer’s Market experiences on offer in Orlando. You can get a lot of stuff here – from foot to clothing to items for your pets! There’s often musical performances hosted here too. You’ll find this Market is much more than just your average farmers market. Find seasonal fresh produce, a wide variety of indoor and outdoor plants, artwork, handmade craft items like jewelry, pottery, and soap. They are also dog friendly, so you can bring your furry friend. Finally, they have a Beer and Wine Garden from 12pm-4pm.

Next on our tour is Freshfields Farm which is open every single day of the week! If you’re looking for meats and produce, this is the place for you. With so many different types of meat to choose from alongside hot items, seafood and a plethora of fresh produce, Freshfields ups the ante with great prices (lower than Publix!). The parking can get full but it’s worth the wait. We bought some chicken tenderloins for $2 per pound and they were tender and juicy – we’ll definitely be returning. A lot!

We then hit East End Market which is open daily as well.  It’s a small indoor market that’s host to everything you want in terms of meats and produce but also things like delicious coffees, artisanal breads, cookies (thanks, Gideon’s!), cold press juices, cheeses, beers and even gorgeous plants! It’s not cheap and the parking was also a little dodgy but if you get there early enough you’ll find great deals. Oh, and tip; bring your own mason jar and you’ll get a discount at the juice bar!

We recommend you try any of these three because we think they’re awesome. Happy Farmer’s Marketing! Did we miss your favorite spot? Tweet us at @AriaAtMillenia
