Good Neighbors Farmer’s Market: A Photo Tour

0

Word has traveled fast about Good Neighbors Farmer’s Market, which opened its gates in January of 2014. Each Saturday from 8am-1:30pm, throngs of visitors descend on the 4.5-acre space when more than 60 vendors, all food related, set up shop on the private land owned by David Lloyd and his family. Unlike most local markets, Good Neighbors Farmer’s Market is a private venture; a fact that Lloyd feels justifies the $2 per person admission. “We don’t have a city parks department taking care of garbage and set-up,” he says. “I have to pay everyone involved, including the 15-18 people that work here every Saturday. Lots of expenses are going into this.”

Besides vendors selling everything from kettle corn and crepes to honey and Florida oranges, you’ll also find a half dozen food trucks and several tents packed with fresh produce. While locavores should ask questions and read labels (blueberries from Chile were recently on offer), the market does have an upcycled barn where everything is sourced from within 50 miles. Inside you’ll find micro-greens from My Yard Farm, cheese from Natural Springs Dairy, fresh eggs, baked goods from Olde Hearth Bread Co., and hydroponic produce from Rest Haven Farm.

Good Neighbors Farmer’s Market is located at 1101 Lloyd’s Lane, Oviedo, 32765.
