If you love shopping at farmers’ markets, Orlando has you covered. Whether you’re looking for local vendors selling produce including fruit and vegetables, meats, home-made baked goods, or other artisanal goods such as wine, honey, artwork and jewelry, there’s something for you. Here’s our pick of the best.
Orlando Farmers’ Market
Every Sunday from 10am-4 pm, Lake Eola Park hosts the Orlando Farmers’ Market. The family- and pet-friendly event brings local produce, baked goods, artisan cheese, fresh-squeezed juices, gourmet kettle corn, handmade jewelry, live plants, and more to the heart of downtown Orlando to serve hundreds of attendees. In the market’s center, a beer and wine garden opens at noon, often with a live musical act.
Winter Park Farmers’ Market
One of the best farmers’ markets to shop at in Orlando, Florida, is the Winter Park Farmers’ Market that’s held at the old historic train depot from 7am-1pm every Saturday of the year, except the third Saturday in March. You’ll find fresh produce, baked goods, flowers and other plants. The Winter Park Farmers’ Market is one of the best plant and produce markets in all of central Florida, making the weekly gathering of local vendors very popular, so go early to avoid the crowds.

A couple weeks ago we visited Orlando, FL as part of our mission to explore more of our home state this year. We've visited the city many times before, but this time we had the intention of exploring only local spots (yep, we skipped a visit to the Mouse), like East End Market. Read more about this marketplace and the other places we visited in our latest blog post! 🔝🔝 — Have you been to Orlando? What are your favorite non-touristy things to do there?
Audubon Park Community Market
Every Monday night from from 5pm-9pm, the Stardust Coffee hosts the Audubon Park Community Market in its parking lot, and it’s a shopping experience you don’t want to miss. The AP Market is a pet- and family-friendly event that brings together local produce growers, fishermen, ranchers, artists, chefs, and musicians to celebrate their goods, such as fresh dairy products, organic honey, as well as home-made dressings, pickles, preserves, and sauces, just to name a few. It’s a great place to grab dinner or dessert, even if you’re not shopping for fresh, sustainably-farmed Florida foods or organic starter plants for your own garden.
Winter Garden Farmers’ Market
The Winter Garden Farmers’ Market, held every Saturday from 9am-2pm off of Plant Street in the historic Winter Garden suburb, is a pet-friendly event where local vendors gather to offer organic produce, ready-to-eat baked goods, gourmet pickles, homemade soaps, fresh flowers, and more. Several restaurants offer food at the market, while live music entertains shoppers.
